The following Dacula, Buford and other northern Gwinnett County criminal incidents were recently investigated by the Gwinnett County Police Department:
The officer interviewed the Buford woman who explained she and her children saw the items in the seats, but did not know who they belonged to so they decided to move them. The Buford woman said the nanny was "rude" to her and denied threatening her. The officer was unable to locate an independent witness to the event. The officer subsequently explained to the nanny how she could press charges against the Buford woman should she wish to do so.
MOM CALLS COPS AFTER FINDING GUN IN SON'S ROOM: A Buford woman called police on June 20 after making a surprising discovery while cleaning her 16-year-old son's room. According to the incident report, the woman found a fully loaded Smith & Wesson revolver in a shoe box. The chrome-plated revolver, which did not return as stolen, was stored in a holster inside the box. The woman said she did not know where the gun came from and did not know where her son was or when he would be home. The officer placed the firearm, ammunition and holster into evidence at police headquarters.
MAN ACCUSES SON OF BURGLARY: A Hoschton man told police he believes his 37-year-old son is responsible for a June 25 burglary at his Turtle Pond Drive home. Police responded to the home after an alarm was activated. The home was found to be fully secure and the Hoschton man indicated nothing appeared to be missing. A short time later, the Hoschton man called police to advise he had discovered some items, including a camera and iPod, had been taken. The man said he thinks his son may be responsible since the son has allegedly stolen checks in the past.
PURSE REPORTED STOLEN AFTER WOMAN LEAVES IT IN SHOPPING CART: A Sugar Hill woman left the Hog Mountain Kroger on June 25 with her purchases, but without her purse. The 45-year-old woman said she placed the purse in her shopping cart before leaving the Dacula grocer. Shortly after driving away, she realized what she had done and returned to the Braselton Highway store, but was unable to locate the purse. The black Coach purse contained the two gift cards worth $500 each, multiple credit cards, a checkbook and the woman's driver's license. The case is listed as active.
