An officer dealt with a 27-year-old woman who said she had lost her home and was now living on the 11th floor of the Buckhead office building where she works. (The irony: The woman works for a mortgage broker/real estate firm in the building on Piedmont Road.) Security guards told her to leave, but a few days later they found the woman sleeping with a man on an inflatable bed on the 11th floor. So they kicked her out for good.
Apparently, the woman called police because she hadn't gotten all her stuff back from the office where she had been living. "I found the items [the woman] advised me of hidden in the desk and returned them to her," an officer wrote. No charges filed.
WORM HOLE: A 25-year-old woman said she went to a basketball game at Philips Arena on a recent Tuesday. "During the game, she stood up to cheer and when she sat down, she noticed that her purse, which had been under her chair, was gone," an officer wrote. "There was a small spot where it may have fallen through, and she notified an attendant, who said they would look for it."
"Sometime later, the purse was pushed back through the spot to her," the officer wrote. "She checked the contents and the only thing missing was her BlackBerry Bold 9700 phone." Attendants searched for her Blackberry — no luck.
OFFICER SPELLGOOD: An officer was patrolling Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard earlier this month, when he wrote, "I noticed several people walking threw the parking deck. That is when I decided to go into the parking deck to see what all the foot traffic was doing. When driving threw the different levels in the parking deck, I reached level 5 witch is the second from top level I noticed a white vehicle with the back passenger side window broken out."
At this point, a 26-year-old woman from Syracuse, N.Y., walked up. She said she had rented the white Kia and left it in the parking lot for a few hours. When she returned, her laptop computer was missing from the car. The officer wrote, "When talking to security of the parking deck, he stated that he did a walk threw around 1 p.m. and then went on brake and have not been back in the parking deck since."
Let it all hang out: About a block from Atlanta City Hall on Trinity Avenue, an officer found a couple allegedly engaged in a sex act. A 50-year-old man was "sitting at the rear of the location with his penis out in plain view, receiving oral sex from [a woman]," the officer wrote. "As I approached ... [the man] pulled up his pants." The 40-year-old woman said, "I'm sorry for sucking his dick." They went to jail on public indecency charge.
HEAVENLY INVESTMENT? A woman walked into the police precinct on Clifton Street and said that back in 2003, she invested $10,000 in a new company called Genesis, alledgedly run by her pastor. She said she gave a $10,000 check directly to the pastor. Apparently, the pastor died recently and the status of "her investment at this time is unknown," an officer noted. The woman said she tried to talk to the pastor's family, but they refused to talk about where the money goes. The woman said the IRS is now investigating her $10,000 check.
Married to the mob: An officer responded to a call at a gas station on Memorial Drive this month. A 31-year-old woman was standing in front of the entrance. "According to the manager, [the woman] had been standing in front of the store all morning and was asked to leave the property several times. [The woman's] position made it difficult for patrons of the business to enter and exit the store," the officer noted. The officer asked the woman to leave numerous times, but "[she] refused to leave each time I asked and stated it was her property because the Mob gave it to her." The woman went to jail on a disorderly conduct charge.
Delayed response: Earlier this month, a 23-year-old man called police to his apartment on Decatur Street. He said his car had been vandalized in the parking garage. "He wanted to report the dent on the front end of his Ford Ranger," the officer wrote. "The actual date of the incident was August 5, 2010."
The officer added, "I asked the victim why he was reporting the incident a month later. His response was he had been busy with school and just being lazy."
Busting through: A man said someone broke through a cement wall and stole about 14 cases of Bud Ice beer, six cases of Old English beer, and assorted candy from his convenience store in the downtown area. He said a specific man previously robbed his store by going through the cement wall. He said the man got "a criminal trespass warning ... yet continues to frequent the property and commit various crimes," an officer wrote. "The store does not have any video surveillance at the time."
