PROPERTY DAMAGE: A Milton resident on Francis Road filed a police report April 17 stating his property was damaged sometime overnight. Four vehicles, the house garage doors and outer security gates had been spray painted with black paint, some of the damage spelling out obscenities. The plastic of two greenhouses on the property was cut beyond repair and approximately 2,000 plants inside one of the greenhouses were damaged. Also a Kubota tractor seat was reportedly cut with a sharp knife. This is the third reported incident of damage to the resident’s property since March 28. The victim believes his daughter’s ex-boyfriend, who allegedly calls and harasses the family repeatedly, could be a suspect.

HIT AND RUN: A hit-and-run accident occurred April 14 around 11:30 p.m. in Milton. The victim told police he was traveling south on McGinnis Ferry Road through the intersection of Bethany Bend toward Morris Road when a dark-colored four-door sedan struck his vehicle in the right front passenger side quarter panel. He talked to the other driver who allegedly said he had insurance and agreed to pull over to the next road, Flamingo Road, to exchange information. The victim said the other driver followed him towards Flamingo Road but fled the scene after he made the turn.

ALREADY BROKEN: On April 6 sometime between 10:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., a car parked outside Best Buy on North Point Drive in Alpharetta was broken into and $30 in cash and a stereo face plate were stolen. The driver’s side window was previously broken and duct taped in place, which is how the suspect entered the vehicle.

UNATTENDED: A victim’s wallet was stolen from her purse by an unknown suspect April 7 at Golden Corral on North Point Drive in Alpharetta. She had left her purse on her chair while she was getting food at the buffet bar.

BROKEN IN: On April 6 sometime between 4:20 and 9:50 p.m., an unknown suspect broke in to an apartment on Jefferson Court in Alpharetta. The suspect entered through an unlocked sliding patio door. An HP laptop, a Dell laptop and $3,000 in cash was reported taken.

UNWELCOME: A Roswell police officer witnessed a man, who has a prior history of panhandling, in the parking lot of the Krystal restaurant on Holcomb Bridge Road March 30. The man approached one vehicle and started talking to the driver, who handed the man some food. The officer then observed him walk over to another vehicle to talk to its driver. When approached by the police, the man told the officer, he had only been given food, not money. The police notified the restaurant’s on-duty shift leader of the activity in the parking lot. The man was served with a criminal trespass warning and was advised not to come back onto the property.

THE AFTERMATH: After the chief financial officer of a Roswell business, Labor Staffing, quit March 31, the company received an unauthorized charge on the company credit card the following day. The charge was for $1,215 at the La Quinta hotel. The CFO also allegedly separated from the company without returning financial documents belonging to Labor Staffing. He reportedly did not leave copies or any other access to the documents.

The names and charges above are from area arrest warrants and crime reports. A warrant is merely an accusation of a crime, and accused people are innocent until proven guilty.
