The following incidents were recently investigated by the Gwinnett County Police Department:
LIGHTS OUT: Police were called to a Bona Road residence on March 24 after a 76-year-old Buford man reportedly disconnected the electrical meter from the house and took the circuit fuses after a dispute with his nephew.
The Buford man said his 101-year-old mother owns the house and he has power of attorney. The man said he asked his nephew to leave and the nephew refused, so he disconnected the power. After an officer explained the eviction process to the man, the man said he would reinstall the meter and fuses. However, City of Buford employees had arrived at the scene by that time and reinstalled the equipment. The Buford employee advised the officer that his supervisor wanted to "hold off on pressing charges for now."
MISSING IPAD: A Buford woman called police on March 21 after discovering her iPad was missing. The woman said the iPad had been stored inside a work bag which she left inside her vehicle when she dropped it off for an oil change on March 19 at the Firestone on Mall of Georgia Boulevard. The woman noticed the iPad was missing the following day and contacted the store manager who, according to the woman, said no one at the business knew anything about the device.
The location service for the iPad was not activated, so the officer was unable to attempt to track the device.
COMPUTER THEFT: A Cumming man's trip to Skate Country in Buford ended with a call to police after his laptop computer was taken. The 57-year-old man told police he left the computer in his vehicle while he was inside the business on the afternoon of March 23 for approximately 30 minutes. The man did not notice any sign of forced entry and believes he may have left the doors unlocked.
SUSPICIOUS INCIDENT: Police are investigating another possible burglary attempt in Dacula. A Hamilton Mill resident said her house alarm was triggered shortly before 7 a.m. on March 28. The system indicated the alarm had been tripped in the basement area of the home. No entry was made, but the woman indicated someone had tried to open one of the doors of her Carriage Glen Way residence. This month, police have investigated at least two burglaries and one other possible attempted burglary in Hamilton Mill.
