Sandy Springs Police Lt. Steve Rose provides a wrap-up of recent police activity. Below is a sampling of arrests made April 16-21.
A woman was arrested on Sandalwood Drive after officers arrived on a domestic-violence call. The officers detained the aggressor to which the female party began to turn on the offiecrs, yelling and cursing at them. She was arrested too.
1100 Hammond Drive
Officers arrested a man at Publix grocery store after he was detained for stealing Zantac and another item by concealing them in his jacket and then walking out of the store. He was arrested.
100 block of Mount Paran Road
A man reported that he and his girlfriend were out drinking and upon returning home, got into an argument. He said the woman attacked him, ripping his shirt and biting him several times. The man had a bite mark near his armpit. The woman said she didn’t remember biting him. She was arrested.
300 block of Hammond Drive
An officer spotted a man sitting in his car around 2 a.m. He checked it out and reported smelling marijuana. While following up on this, the officer checked the man and found some cocaine on him. The man said the weed was his but not the coke. He was holding it for a friend who kept losing it. This guy was dumb but the next two are even dumber:
Cops were called to a fight at Cocktail Cove at closing time (2 a.m.) Two friends of one of the men in custody didn’t think he needed to go to jail so they interefered with the officers as they escorted the man to the patrol car. The men yelled “F--- the MF police” in an attempt to incite the small crowd of people who had gathered. The two men were immediately arrested. Another person was arrested for slapping a woman in the face and in the presence of an off-duty Fulton police officer working at the bar. Another person was arrested in connection to this disturbance. Looks like four people went to jail.
An officer watched as two men met and exchanged something between them in the 5300 block of Roswell Road on April 18th. The officer later arrested one of the men for marijuana possession.
5610 Roswell Road
Responding to a shoplifting call, an officer spotted a man walking from the Target store. The man fit the description of the suspect on the call and was detained. The man had two DVD players on him, neither one paid for, in his backpack. He was arrested for the theft of the two items valued at $180.
4920 Roswell Road
Cops were called to the Kroger Store where they found a man who was lying on the bathroom floor, in a locked stall and next to the toilet. He was drunk and holding a four-pack of Sutter Home wine that he had stolen in the store. He was checked by EMS personnel and after being cleared, was arrested for stealing the wine. On the way to jail, he called the officer a “dick” which is about the only thing the officer could understand from the man.
A man called the cops to report a burglary. The cops checked the man’s ID and found he was wanted in Gwinnett County on a felony larceny warrant. He was arrested. This is indeed, bad Karma.
QuikTrip on Dunwoody Place
A woman was arrested after a passing motorist stopped and alerted an officer, who was fueling his car at pumps, that the woman was in a red Jeep Liberty, driving recklessly. The officer observed the woman, who had also stopped at the QT and was walking across the parking lot. He noted the woman’s manner of walking gave him the impression she was impaired. He walked to the woman and spoke with her, noting later that her lips looked extrememly chapped; almost burned, which is a common look for those who smoke crack.
He asked her where she was coming from and she replied “Cumming.”
He asked her where she was going and she replied “Cumming.”
We call this a clue.
