o DENIM DUDE: At the Bloomingdale’s store located at Lenox Square mall at 3393 Peachtree Road in Buckhead June 9, the suspect took 19 pairs of True Religion jeans and attempted to walk out of the store without paying. The suspect was arrested at the scene and transported to the Fulton County Jail.
o GOOD SAMARITAN: At Ga. 400 and Abernathy Road in Sandy Springs June 19, the victim told police that at 4:20 a.m., he was driving south on 400 at Abernathy when he saw a man trying to wave people down. The driver said he had compassion for this man, so he pulled over and picked the hitchhiker up. The suspect told the victim he needed to go to Cobb Parkway. The suspect then pulled a gun described as a Glock and pointed it at the victim. He ordered the victim to pull over before taking his wallet and driving off in his 1997 Mercury Grand Marquis. The suspect is described as a black male, standing 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighing 225 pounds, in his late 20s to early 30s and wearing a plaid — blue, red and orange — shirt and black Air Force One sneakers.
o SPILLED MILK: At 7 Concourse Pkwy. in Sandy Springs June 18, a man said he and his lady friend checked into the Westin Hotel. He told the officer that around 2:30 a.m., he was changing clothes when $5,000 fell from his pants pockets to the floor. He saw this but did not pick it up. He left his lady friend in the room while he left to run an errand. He texted her at 3:30 a.m. asking if the money was still on the floor. She said yes, along with her $900 shoes. The next day, they checked out of the room at around 2:30 p.m. He told the officer he realized he left the money on the hotel room floor. He returned to the hotel at 10 p.m., but the hotel manager was gone until the next day. The hotel has safes in its rooms, but one was not used in this case. The hotel interviewed the staff and key-access information is available to the police investigation.
o LOVE THY NEIGHBOR: At the 1000 block of Brentwood Way in Sandy Springs June 18, a man reported his neighbor pulled a gun on him and threatened to kill him. The officer visited the suspect and asked her if she had pulled a gun. She told him she did and showed him a BB gun that looked like a real firearm. She said she did this so he would be afraid of her because she had previous problems with him and was tired of it. She was later arrested and the gun placed into evidence.
