WOMAN SAYS ESTRANGED HUSBAND SNATCHED HER PURSE: A Buford woman who has been separated from her husband for months believes her cash-strapped spouse is responsible for snatching her purse as she headed inside a Buford Highway gas station on May 15. The woman said her husband ran up behind her, grabbed her purse and ran down Buford Highway. Though the woman admitted she did not see her assailant's face, she informed the officer she knows what her husband looks like from behind. Her estranged husband, she explained, was laid off from his job and has reportedly been following her around trying to get money. The woman said the couple have not lived together since his release from jail several months ago. The woman's purse contained her cell phone, drivers license and a bank debit card. The case is listed as active.
'HYSTERICALLY CRYING' WOMAN CLAIMS MAN STOLE HER BRA MONEY: A Norcross woman was found "hysterically crying" near the intersection of Dacula Road and Freemans Walk Drive after an acquaintance allegedly stole $500 and other belongings during a May 18 trip to Dacula. The woman said she went for a ride with a male acquaintance and during the trip pulled $500 out of her bra -- which is where she said she normally keeps her money -- and put it in her wallet. The male acquaintance reportedly told her the money didn't look real. At that point, the woman handed the money to the male acquaintance so he could see it. The male then allegedly pocketed the money and refused to return it, claiming he would give it back after they went to Dacula. The woman said they stopped at a home in Dacula before going to the Shell station on Dacula Road. The woman said while she was inside the gas station, the male left her. The woman added that she had left her purse, which contained her cell phone and other items, inside the man's vehicle. The woman further advised the male acquaintance uses meth and heroin and claimed there were "an unusual number of spoons" inside his vehicle. The woman said the man is from the Dacula area, but refused to provide any additional information other than the man's cell phone number. The total estimated value of the items taken was $945.
