The following Dacula, Buford and other northern Gwinnett County criminal incidents were recently investigated by the Gwinnett County Police Department:
GUNSHOTS REPORTED A Buford woman said she was standing near the end of her Church Street home driveway just before midnight on May 19 when a silver passenger car passed her location. As the vehicle turned onto South Alexander Street, the woman heard what she believed was a gunshot and, after a short interval, heard what sounded like three more shots in rapid succession. Police were unable to locate the vehicle and found no property damage or shell casings in the area.
'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.
