Among the reports filed recently with Sandy Springs police:
Two people at an apartment on Brentwood Way had a house guest over. The next morning he and two computers were gone.
6900 Roswell Road: Around 4:30 p.m., two women in a car saw a man carrying two bags of groceries. (It was snowing.) They felt sorry for him. They gave him a ride to the back of the apartment complex. He got out and told them to call him sometime. They left and later found that a wallet belonging to one of the women was gone. Later, a credit card had been used. So much for Good Samaritan.
Target Store employees said they noticed a man on video removing a 26” TV and move it to a back storage room area. When they went to that area, the man had already left. They got word that the man had done the same thing in Roswell. He was nice enough to leave his cell phone behind and a good photo of him on it. The photo matched the video. You know this guy is hating life when he realized he left the phone.
8000 block of Roswell Road: A woman reported someone stole her digital camera at Tony’s Sports Bar around 2 a.m.
1155 Mt. Vernon Hwy.: A man reported he was working out at LA Fitness and, while doing so, laid his canvas wallet on the floor. Later, he found out it was missing. Personal info and credit cards are missing.
7700 block of Spalding Drive: The victim said someone stole his 2003 BMW from the Publix parking lot. He said he may have left his keys in the car.
1117 Perimeter Center Way: A woman reported she left her wallet in her desk and went to lunch. When she returned, the wallet was gone.
Summit Springs Drive: A woman reported she was in a friend’s car and accidentally left her purse in it. She has not been able to get in touch with him since.
1100 Hammond Drive: Three laptops were reported missing from an office.
7000 Peachtree-Dunwoody Road: Someone stole a laptop and camera. The victim said she believes it was a male who was in the area of the items earlier.
Officers answered an argument call on Treelodge Pkwy. They spoke to a man and woman. He took a call from another woman. She got mad. He grabbed her by the neck and arm. She hit him in the face. Both were arrested. Nothing happened to the woman on the phone — the one who started the whole thing.
Long Beach Circle: A man climbed over a fence and then tried to pry a sliding glass door to a nearby townhome. Unfortunately for him, the resident was home. The man made a lamo-excuse about looking for his dog. He was arrested.
7000 Roswell Road: Officers received a fight call at Celebration Apartments. The lookout was on a white Nissan leaving the complex. One officer spotted, and then stopped, the car. The three occupants appeared to have been fighting as they had blood on their clothes and looked bad. The victims later identified them and they were arrested. Apparently, they crashed a party and it didn’t go over well.
North River Drive: A woman reported that, just after 6 a.m., she was on North River at Sandalwood Drive when a male forced her out of the car and then drove away. The car was found minutes later, partially wrecked on a utility box. The male was gone.
20 block of Cedar Run: While the victim was away from the apartment, someone forced entry and took a computer and TV.
Huntcliff Village Lane: A resident said she left the apartment and when she returned about 10 p.m. several items were missing, including her two TV’s, laptop, a DVD player and several other items. The door had been left unlocked.
5675 Roswell Road: Missing is a 42” television, a computer and a couple of hundred dollars in change.
