Business burglary. About $200 in candy and soft drinks and $95 in cash were stolen from the Pure Service Station at 249 E. Ponce de Leon Ave. A passer-by noticed a broken window and notified police about 3:15 p.m. Sunday, March 10. The east side window was broken, apparently with a rock, to provide entry. Inside, candy wrappers were strewn across the floor and candy wrappers in the parking lot left a trail toward North Candler Street. The station had been locked up about 1 p.m. the day before.
House broken into. Police went to a house in the 100 block of Griffin Circle about 8:10 p.m. March 7. An officer found a glass panel forced out of the back door, leaving enough room for entry. The alarm and thermostat had been forced off the wall in the hallway. A dresser drawer in the master bedroom had been rifled. Missing from the house were jewelry and a jewelry box, a flat screen television, headphones and an electronic tablet and case.
He saw it happen. A landscaper told police he saw a man drive off with his landscaping truck and trailer. He was working in the 300 block of Hill Street around noon March 7 when the man took the 2010 Toyota Tundra and attached trailer. The landscaper's wallet and $800 were inside the truck and a $3,500 mower was on the trailer. The truck was last seen on West Benson Street, heading toward South McDonough.
