Bizarre crimes from Atlanta police reports
[image-1]MEAN GIRLS: An officer responded to a dispute between two women at an apartment complex on Parkway Drive. The women are next-door neighbors. A 21-year-old woman said bleach was thrown at her door. A 32-year-old woman said the 21-year-old put a can inside a sock and threatened to hit her with it.
The officer wrote, "I found no evidence that bleach was thrown ... I found no sock with a can inside it." The officer told both women to stay inside their apartments and to talk with the apartment managers in the morning.
BREAKING UP IS HARD TO DO: On Sand Dollar Court, a 36-year-old man said his former boyfriend showed up around 10 a.m. and stole his wallet from his car parked in the driveway. The 36-year-old man said he saw this happen from his upstairs window. He said his ex-boyfriend knows that he keeps his wallet in the glove compartment. (Blotter note: The man did not explain why he prefers to store his wallet in his car instead of his apartment.)
He said his ex-boyfriend also left a letter on the car windshield – and the letter stated that the ex-boyfriend wants to get back together. The man said his ex-boyfriend calls him and leaves messages on his phone.
Turns out, the same reporting officer gave the ex-boyfriend a trespassing warning about two weeks prior, instructing him to stay away from the man's home on Sand Dollar Court. The officer told the man to call 911 if he sees the ex-boyfriend again.
