A man said he was at a house on Boulevard late Saturday night with a 34-year-old bald man who has spiderwebs tattooed all over his arms and back. The first man gave the spiderweb-tattooed man $30 and the keys to his green 2001 Dodge Intrepid, so he could purchase some items at the store. The man with the spiderweb tattoos left with the car and never returned or called.
The next day, the first man saw the tattooed man standing at the intersection of Ponce de Leon Avenue and Boulevard. The first man asked him about his car and $30.
The tattooed man told police he and the first man smoked crack at the house on Boulevard. He said he drove to the store, where a male drug dealer punched him and took the car. He said he didn't immediately call police because he was looking for the car himself, and didn't want to tell the first man. A computer check revealed that the tattooed man had an outstanding warrant, so he went to jail. The first man told police the tattooed man did the same thing on a previous occasion when he was allowed to use the Dodge Intrepid.
