The following Dacula, Buford and other northern Gwinnett County criminal incidents were recently investigated by the Gwinnett County Police Department:
MAN ACCUSES WIFE OF PAWNING ITEMS FOR DRUG MONEY: A Sugar Hill man believes his wife took items out of his truck without his permission on April 24 and pawned them to get money for drugs. The man claimed his wife has a drug problem and has stolen and pawned his property previously. The wife denied taking anything out of the truck and said she had just gone out for a drink. The officer attempted to explain community property to the man, but noted the man "was persistent that I make a report about the incident and wanted his wife arrested." No arrest was made due to lack of supporting evidence.
CAR BREAK-IN AT AA MEETING: A Lawrenceville woman said four written prescriptions were taken out of her unlocked truck while she was at an AA meeting in Buford on April 22. The victim advised she needed a police report in order to obtain new prescriptions. There are no known witnesses or suspects in the incident.
BUFORD MAN INJURED IN RESTAURANT INCIDENT: A Buford man said a white male with a large scar on his head kept "calling him gay and other degrading slurs" during an April 24 meal at a Buford Drive restaurant. The Buford man said he asked the scarred man to leave him alone, but instead the scarred man came to the Buford man's table and draped his arm around his shoulders. The scarred man went outside with some friends and then allegedly opened the door and threw an object at the Buford man, which left a small abrasion above the Buford man's right eyebrow. A witness to the incident saw the scarred man throw something at the Buford man and confirmed the scarred man had been bothering the Buford man at his table. The restaurant has video surveillance, but no one working at the time the report was taken knew how to retrieve it.
LAWN FURNITURE REPORTED STOLEN: A Dacula woman called police on April 22 after noticing her white-painted, wrought iron lawn furniture was missing. The woman said the furniture, along with other objects, had been placed in the front yard of her Harbin Oaks Drive home. Three pieces -- a chair, loveseat and coffee table -- were taken. The stolen furniture was valued at $500.
