Some reports filed recently with Sandy Springs Police:
Someone removed several items from an office in the 7800 block of Roswell Road. The items include an i-Pod. The business has a card-key entry system and no one used a key over the weekend however renovation crews were in. The i-Pod had been left on a desk. (Don’t leave items on your desk—especially over a weekend or even overnight. You can put an i-Pod in your pocket.)
Someone cut a hole in a fence in the 1200 block of Pitts Road and accessed an area where they took $800 in copper from the location.
The victim told officers that a diamond ring is missing from a bathroom countertop where she last saw it. She said painters had been in the home in the 800 block of Jett Ferry. Make it a point that if you expect workers or anyone else you expect to have access to your home, do a walkthrough and secure anything and everything you consider valuable.
A renovation crew, working on an apartment, found a man inside. They called the police who went to the apartment. The man initially locked himself in the bedroom but thought about it and then came out. He said he had come in because the apartment was unlocked and warm inside.
An officer stopped a car with a tag that had been expired since 2005. The officer stopped the driver and asked about the decal on the car. Turns out it was taken from another car. The man said he bought it from another guy. At this point the man was arrest. The officer told the man he was going to handcuff him but the man resisted, pulling his arms away. The officer told the man to comply again but he didn’t. The officer then told the man he was going to taser him. The man then complied and was taken to jail.
This is a good example of why this is a dangerous profession folks. This guy knew that he was caught and still he resisted. I speak for myself but I can tell you that these tasers have saved a lot of people, including this guy from being seriously hurt or killed fighting with a police officer.
A business owner called and said that someone posted a sexually explicit ad on Craig’s List Internet site using his business number as the contact number. He said he’s getting calls.
