FORCED ENTRY: A Roswell resident called police April 21 to report a burglary at her home on Hemingway Lane. She had left her house for about two and a half hours to go to the doctor’s office and returned to find her front door had been forced open. The resident went through her home and noticed her television set and jewelry had been stolen. Police noticed the front door had damage consistent with a kick near the door knob.

TOO MUCH TO DRINK: A valet driver at Pure Taqueria in Roswell tried to prevent an impaired woman from driving home April 24 but she allegedly snatched her keys from him and hit a white VW Passat on her way out of the parking lot. The woman was driving a black GMC Yukon, and the valet wrote down the license plate number to give to police.

STORE ROBBERY: Roswell police were dispatched to an adult business on Holcomb Bridge Road April 25 in reference to an armed robbery. Two unknown black men were reported to have entered the shop wearing bandanas and carrying firearms and allegedly forced an employee to open the safe and cash register. About $400 is said to have been taken from the business and an additional $25 was reported stolen from a customer. The business’ Doraville location was also robbed at gunpoint two days before.

UNPAID: Staff at the Sears service center on North Point Circle in Alpharetta called police April 28 in reference to a theft of service. A customer dropped his car off for new tires and then allegedly came back, took his keys while no one was looking and left with his car without paying for the tires or the service.

STOLEN PROPERTY: Wells Fargo staff on Old Milton Parkway in Alpharetta called police May 1 to report a case of forgery. A woman came through the drive-thru lane attempting to use withdrawal slips that had been reported stolen and a driver’s license. Officers caught up with the woman after she left the bank. She was driving a rented Kia with a stolen license plate that was duct tapped over the original plate. The suspect told police four men in a white Volvo SUV had made her get the cash from the withdrawal slips and that they had been in the parking lot of the bank when she was at the drive-thru.

GOOD DEED GONE WRONG: A woman driving through Milton May 18 decided to give a young man walking down Highway 9 a ride. She dropped him off at a residence on Wennington Trace and when she got home she discovered her wallet was missing from her vehicle. The woman went back to the house where she dropped the man off but the homeowner told her a person of that description did not live there. Police searched the home with the homeowner’s consent and did not find the suspect there.

The names and charges above are from area arrest warrants and crime reports. A warrant is merely an accusation of a crime, and accused people are innocent until proven guilty.
