NAKED PEOPLE, PART 1: An officer dealt with a call about a suspicious truck parked in the driveway of a vacant property on Lookout Avenue. When the officer arrived, he noticed a man and woman "were completely naked, passed out in the truck, and they had three empty bags of cocaine in the vehicle with them," he wrote. The man, 40, and the woman, 43, went to jail on a public indecency charge. The truck, a 1994 white Mazda B23, was impounded.

NAKED PEOPLE, PART 2: One Tuesday around 2 p.m., a completely nude man allegedly walked into a Blockbuster on Ponce de Leon Avenue. Apparently, the nude man fled before police arrived. But the nude man would return. The following Tuesday around 2 p.m., the same nude man walked into the same Blockbuster store. A witness identified him. Police charged the 31-year-old man with indecent exposure and took him to jail. An officer wrote, "When I asked [the man] why he was nude in the store, he stated that it was because 'white people piss him off.'"

DIXIE VIXON: A man told police that a woman "wearing Daisy Dukes ... snatched $400 and stuffed it in her butt so that he could not get it back," an officer wrote. The man said a $100 bill fell out as the woman sped away in a white Cadillac Deville -- but she still had $300 of his money.

The man said he reported the incident and then drove around looking for the woman near Harwell Road because he'd heard she lives near there. He said he spotted the woman's car parked outside a Mrs. Winner's restaurant on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway. So he called police again. An officer went inside the Mrs. Winner's and found the suspect – a 40-year-old woman wearing a pink shirt and Daisy Dukes. She went to jail on a theft charge.

BITE THE DUST: A 33-year-old woman said her dental retainer disappeared while she was at work. (She's a gate agent at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.) She said she took her dental retainer out of her mouth, wrapped it in white tissue and put it on a counter near her computer. Then, she said, she walked down the jetway to a plane. She said after the plane pulled away from the gate, she returned to the counter and her dental retainer was gone. She said she asked a female passenger sitting nearby if she saw anything suspicious. The passenger reportedly said a woman wearing tan pants and a gray T-shirt walked up to the counter and grabbed something, but she couldn't see the item in her hand.

The gate agent figured out the suspect's name and told police the suspect already left on a flight to Dothan, Ala., and would arrive in about an hour. She said she called Dothan Airport police, but they wouldn't do anything without a police report. So she filed a police report. No word on if the woman's dental retainer was returned. The dental retainer is worth $700.

BALL OF CONFUSION: Three men reportedly walked in and started shooting paintballs inside a small grocery store on Joseph E. Boone Boulevard. "The paintballs went all over the walls and damaged some merchandise," a police officer wrote. The store owner said a paintball hit his Ford Explorer parked outside, and possibly left a dent. The owner said this is the second time a paintball attack happened at his store, and he is very concerned for his customers.

No items were reported missing or stolen – just the alleged paintball incident. Police told the owner to pull the surveillance videotapes in hopes that the suspects could be identified. The three suspects reportedly left in a gold Nissan Altima.

FUNNY MONEY: An officer dealt with an upset man on Lynhurst Drive. The man said several months ago, he got a call from a stranger saying the man had won the lottery. The officer wrote, "The suspect said that a requirement to collect the grand prize was to prepay President Obama. [The man] was required to make payments to the suspect over several months. [The man] made an estimated dozen payments totaling about $15,000."

The man said he called police when he discovered he was being scammed and the suspect kept asking him for money. The man said when he told the suspect there would be no more payments, the suspect threatened to take the man's family to Texas. The suspect reportedly said he would leave the man's family at the border if he did not comply. The man is now fully aware that he was scammed with the fake lottery call, the officer wrote.

ANIMAL FARM, PART 1: A woman said she left two packages of dog food and some dog treats at her friend's house on Campbellton Road because she keeps her dog at her friend's house. (The woman, 58, lives in a nearby apartment.)

The woman said two days later, her friend called and said a suspect named Granddad had stolen her dog food and dog treats. The woman said she called Granddad and asked him why he took her dog food. She also called police. The woman said she owes Granddad $10, but that doesn't give him the right to steal her dog food.

A police officer called Granddad. "I took the dog food because [the woman] owes me $10 and does not want to pay me," Granddad reportedly said. The officer noted, "I was unable to obtain Granddad's real name."

Police told the woman to take out a warrant against Granddad at the Fulton County Courthouse.

RIVERDANCE REJECT? Around 4 p.m., a middle-aged man was allegedly waving a wooden cross at passing cars at the intersection of Freedom Parkway and Boulevard. Police ordered him to leave. So he left. Apparently, this wannabe performer was not to be stifled. About three hours later, the man returned to the same spot but this time, he allegedly danced and made gestures at passing cars. This time, police arrested the 49-year-old man for disorderly conduct and "pedestrian in the roadway."

DETERMINED BOOZE HOUND: At a nightclub on Alco Street, the manager said someone knocked a hole in the roof, dropped down through the hole and stole $4,200 worth of alcohol during the night. "It appeared the suspects used a cinder block, knife, fiberglass-handled hammer (this item broke during the incident) to knock the hole in the roof," the officer wrote. "Once down on the ground, the suspects stole a trash can from the business next door to carry away the alcohol." Some tools were found in another trash can. The nightclub does not have a surveillance system or an alarm. But apparently, the Waffle House across the street has a surveillance camera pointed at the nightclub. The Waffle House manager said he would have to contact the main office to pull the video.

PARTY GIRL: An officer dealt with a 23-year-old woman passed out in the back of a car at Collier and Peachtree roads. The woman's friend said they had been drinking at a concert venue on West Peachtree Street and at some point, the 23-year-old woman got very sick, so they called a friend to pick them up. On the way home, the 23-year-old woman reportedly vomited and defecated on herself, so her friend stopped at a gas station to check on her and call for help. Medics took her to Piedmont Hospital.

Later, the officer followed up with Piedmont Hospital. The officer said he talked to the 23-year-old woman's father, who said she was OK now and she had been sick before going out drinking. She was awake at the hospital and laughing with friends, according to the police report. No visible injuries reported.

STORAGE CHEST: Around 9:30 a.m., an officer talked to two women on Pine Street. The officer asked one woman for her name. "When she started speaking, she bent over to fix her shoes and when she did, I could clearly see a clear bag with a lot of suspected crack cocaine between her breast[s]," the officer wrote. The other woman said, "You got my baby's candy in your shirt," and reached between the woman's breasts. "[She] was trying to push the bag down deeper in the woman's shirt," the officer wrote. Both women were arrested and taken to jail. Both are age 24.
