ATTEMPTED BREAK-IN: Roswell police were called out to a home on Old Ferry Way June 2 in response to a possible burglary in progress. The resident told police she was sleeping on her couch when she was awakened by her dog barking at an intruder who had entered through her front door. The victim said the suspect left once he saw her and that nothing was stolen from her home. She described the intruder as a black man about 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-6 inches tall, wearing a dark shirt and a dark baseball cap. The suspect was not immediately located.
POOL MISCHIEF: The pool area of the Roswell Station subdivision was the target of vandalism sometime between the evening of May 29 and the morning of May 30. The president of the homeowners’ association told police an unknown suspect gained entry into the gated pool area, turned on the shower in the men’s locker room, put a large number of paper towels in the toilet and around the locker room floor and pushed a pool chair in the pool. Despite the mischievous acts, there was no permanent damage to any property.
SINNING IN CHURCH: A woman filed a theft report with Roswell police June 2 claiming someone stole her black and green Apple iPhone 5C while attending St. Andrew’s Catholic Church June 1. The victim said the phone was in her purse but she left her purse sitting under a pew while she went and took communion. She didn’t know her phone was missing until the next day.
DUPED: A Roswell resident responded to a Craigslist ad to purchase a coin set for $425. He met the seller at a gas station at the intersection of Roswell Road and I-285 to make the purchase. However, after the buyer arrived home, he realized the collection was not a complete, authentic set. Attempts to contact the seller were unsuccessful, so the buyer filed a theft by deception report with Roswell police.
UNSECURED ENTRY: Sometime between June 1 at 11 p.m. and June 2 at 6 a.m., an unknown suspect entered a home on Waters Mill Drive in Alpharetta and took the resident’s purse and credit cards. The suspect attempted to use the credit cards at various locations. While there were no signs of forced entry into the house, the garage door was left unlocked.
MISSING PARTS: The Alpharetta Police Department received two separate reports June 2 of catalytic converters stolen from vehicles parked less than a mile away from each other. A catalytic converter was reported stolen from a Toyota 4Runner parked at 5900 Windward Parkway. The same auto part was discovered missing from a 2011 Honda CRV parked at 12585 Dryden Road.
NOT WITHOUT A FIGHT: Roswell police arrested a shoplifter from Buckle at North Point Mall June 4 for allegedly stealing $584 in blue jeans from the business. The suspect also received a charge for obstruction because he allegedly refused to cooperate and attempted to fight with officers once he was in custody.
HAIR TODAY, GONE TOMORROW: Sometime between June 4 at 8:30 p.m. and June 5 at 6:40 a.m., someone threw a cinder block through the front glass door of Ultimate Beauty Supply on Windward Parkway in Alpharetta. The suspect or suspects reportedly stole 180 packages of hair weaves from the business.
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.
