Bizarre crimes from Atlanta police reports
[image-1]ANIMAL FARM, PART 1: A woman said she left two packages of dog food and some dog treats at her friend's house on Campbellton Road because she keeps her dog at her friend's house. (The woman, 58, lives in a nearby apartment.)
The woman said two days later, her friend called and said a suspect named Granddad had stolen her dog food and dog treats. The woman said she called Granddad and asked him why he took her dog food. She also called police. The woman said she owes Granddad $10, but that doesn't give him the right to steal her dog food.
A police officer called Granddad. "I took the dog food because [the woman] owes me $10 and does not want to pay me," Granddad reportedly said. The officer noted, "I was unable to obtain Granddad's real name."
Police told the woman to take out a warrant against Granddad at the Fulton County Courthouse.
