GONE IN SECONDS: A Suwanee woman called Gwinnett County Police after her daughter's phone went missing during an April 27 shopping trip at the Mall of Georgia. The woman said her daughter placed her lime green iPhone 5C on the counter at American Eagle and "within seconds" it was gone. The woman did not see who took the phone, which has an estimated value of $500. The woman was able to track the phone to the Countryside Mobile Home Park, located on Horizon Parkway in Buford. The woman later went to the mobile home park with the satellite image obtained from the tracking software and contacted police with an address. Officers met the woman at the home. The woman said she did not wish to prosecute, she just wanted the phone back. An officer made contact with a resident of the home who claimed to have found the phone in a changing room. The resident said she meant to try to contact the owner, but forgot. The resident produced the phone and the officer returned it to the Suwanee woman. No charges were filed.
STOLEN CHANGE JAR: A Buford woman claims an acquaintance took a change jar containing approximately $200 in coins and then struck another person with her vehicle during an April 23 incident at a Bona Road home. The acquaintance reportedly came to the Buford woman's home while attempting to locate a male friend. The Buford woman said she noticed the acquaintance carrying something as she left the residence and then realized it was the change jar in which she and her roommate store spare change which they use to pay the electricity bill at the end of the month. The Buford woman immediately confronted the acquaintance, who allegedly admitted having the jar before attempting to flee. The acquaintance reportedly struck the Buford woman's roommate with her vehicle while driving away from the scene.
When contacted by police, the acquaintance denied taking the change jar and said she believes a person who was with her may have taken it when he reportedly went inside the house to buy drugs from the roommate. The acquaintance denied having been in the residence and claimed not to know anything about the roommate being struck with her vehicle. The acquaintance further claimed the roommate pointed a gun at her and her passenger.
Due to the conflicting statements and the lack of independent witnesses, no arrests were made.
