Gwinnett Blotter March 14 2001
A 34-year-old man parked his white Mercedes in the parking deck of Atlanta City Hall East on Ponce de Leon Avenue.
When he returned to his car, he noticed a large quantity of saliva dripping from his driver's side door handle.
Under the windshield, there was a note, which read: "You think you bad [racial slur]."
The 34-year-old said he didn't have any idea who left the message.
A Norcross pharmacy reported an ongoing problem with a 48-year-old Tucker man. The man had called on numerous occasions advising that he did not receive his prescription — a Schedule 4 drug — or that it had not been in full.
He did have an original prescription, but only for 150 tablets, and he had received 240 tablets in less than a month. After picking up the prescription, the man called the pharmacy and said that it was not full.
He came in to pick up some more and wanted it billed to his insurance company.
Because of liability concerns and believing the customer, the pharmacy furnished him with more of the tablets. The next day, he called back for more.
The pharmacy contacted a DEA inspector and the police. They showed the original documents where he signed when he picked up his prescriptions.
A man entered a Stone Mountain convenience store, grabbed 12 boxes of cigars and left the store without paying.
The store clerk obtained the man's license tag number as he drove off.
A 31-year-old Buford woman and a 33-year-old man were fighting in their home.
Police arrived to find both parties yelling. The woman was hysterical; she was crying, her face was red and she had vivid red marks about her throat. The man had scratch marks on the right side of his neck.
The officer was told that the reason for the argument was that "he is never home."
The woman said the man started the argument, hitting her in the head, shoving her against the wall, hitting the wall with her head and choking her. She said she had to scratch him to get him off of her.
The man said she attacked him by throwing the phone at him.
The man was placed under arrest and transported to jail.
Around 5:40 p.m., a 27-year-old Atlanta man returned to his residence on Moreland Avenue and noticed that his bedroom had been ransacked. As he checked the house, the man discovered that his television, boom box and telephone were missing.
He then noticed that the front door was broken. At that point, he called police.
"The perpetrators did defecate in the toilet and not flush," the officer noted in the report.
At 12:40 a.m., an officer saw a Mazda MX-6 parked in the fire lane at the Kroger on Moreland Avenue. The officer gave a ticket to the owner of the car, a 26-year-old man. The owner yelled "fuck" four times in a row.
The officer went back inside Kroger. Five minutes later, the owner came inside and asked for the officer's name and badge number. The officer gave him both and the owner left Kroger.
Ten minutes later, the officer walked outside Kroger, and noticed that the Mazda was still in the fire lane. He asked the owner why he refused to move his car.
"I'm not finished with what I'm doing," said the owner, who was sitting in the fire lane, eating fruit with a friend.
The officer promptly wrote another ticket for failure to obey and impounded the car.
An officer responded to a call about a naked man knocking on doors on Catherine Street.
The officer spoke with the man, age 28, who said while he was walking to a bus stop on Ashby Street, a man and a woman pulled alongside him in a car.
The male suspect pointed a gun at him and forced him into the car. The female suspect drove, while the male suspect forced the victim to remove his clothes and instructed the victim to give up everything.
The suspects took the man's clothes, shoes, wallet, identification and $30. The man was forced out of the car on Catherine Street where he knocked on doors, and eventually received some clothes from a resident.
A 52-year-old woman said she works part time at her husband's medical office on East Shadowlawn Avenue. The wife told an intern — a 23-year-old woman — to file some medical records. But later, the wife discovered that the intern was putting the medical records in the trash. The wife said the intern also took checks belonging to patients and the insurance company.
The wife confronted the intern. The intern said it wasn't her job to file.
The wife said she left some deposit slips and checks on her desk, and then went to the restroom. When she returned, half of the checks were gone — and so was the intern.
