Bizarre crimes from Atlanta police reports
[image-1]SMOOTH MOVE: A 34-year-old man said he called his ex-girlfriend because he needed a ride to pick up his son from school. He said while they were in the car, his ex-girlfriend asked him about his birthday. "He stated he told her they are no longer in that type of relationship and not to worry about his birthday," an officer wrote. Apparently, his ex-girlfriend got upset about that. The man said he got out of her car and started to walk away, but the ex-girlfriend drove up to him and pointed a pistol at him. The man said he took off running and she drove away. No further info.
SCREEN PASS, PART I: A woman called police and said she found a flat-screen TV in the front yard of her home on Hidden Oak Court. She doesn't know how the flat-screen TV got there. "She stated that just about every house in her cul-de-sac has been burglarized in the last two weeks," an officer wrote. The woman refused to give any personal information to police — she just wanted them to remove the TV from her yard. An officer took the flat-screen TV and turned it in to police property.
