o FRIEND IN NEED: At 1758 Harper St. in northwest Atlanta May 20, the victim stayed at the suspect’s house for a week after leaving the hospital. The victim accidentally knocked over the suspect’s make-up bag in the bathroom and noticed her own medication in the bag. The victim left the suspect’s house and needed to have a police report filed in order to have her Sentanyl and Oxycodone medication replaced.

o PROMISE BREAKER: At 3088 Piedmont Road in Buckhead May 23, the victim reported a 2014 Ford F-150 was stolen At 3088 Piedmont Rd NE. He said the suspect rented the vehicle April 19 and was supposed to return it April 26, but never did. The victim took out a warrant for the suspect with Fulton County Court. The vehicle was then flagged in the system as stolen.



o GUN HANDY: At an apartment complex at 298 Deering Road in Buckhead May 24 a man told police he and his friends were walking to his apartment when he exchanged words with the maintenance man, who had yelled at them to be quiet. The maintenance man then brandished a black revolver and pointed it at the victim, who put his hands in the air as a sign of surrender. The suspect left the scene and was not located when officers went to an apartment looking for him. No injuries were reported.



o MYSTERY INTRUDER: At 40 Peachtree Valley Road in Buckhead May 23, the victim told police someone entered her apartment with a key, sat on her bed, ruffled the sheets and opened three of her drawers without taking anything. The suspect left a sticky note on the victim’s front door that read, ‘Trusting your prophet so shall you prosper.’ The victim said this is the third time that such a weird incident has occurred in the apartment, where she had only been living for three weeks. The victim was adamant that no one knows where she lives. There were no signs of forced entry.

o PIPE DREAM: At the Peek-A-Boo store at 1905 Piedmont Circle in Buckhead May 19, the victim reported he was robbed by a male named Reggie. The victim said he was watching a movie when the suspect asked to use his cell phone. The suspect then took the phone and exited the building. The suspect pulled out a large pipe and threatened to beat the victim. The victim threw bleach on the man and ran off.

o GIRL TROUBLE: At the 1500 block of Cimarron Pkwy. in Sandy Springs May 28, a woman reported that at about 9 a.m. she heard a knock on the door. She asked who it was and a woman’s voice said “flowers.” She opened the door to discover a woman pointing a gun at her. Another woman, whose name she knew, then entered the apartment. The victim had recently borrowed $1,000 from another woman, so the victim believes the suspects came there to collect the money. Taken from the apartment were two BB/pellet handguns and a Samsung phone. A Blackberry Z10 cell phone was destroyed by the suspects.

o BANK ROBBER: The Regions Bank at 6637 Roswell Road in Sandy Springs was robbed at about 1:30 p.m. May 29.

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.
