POTTED PLANTS PITCHED IN DISPUTE: A Buford man called police on May 24 after his ex-girlfriend allegedly began throwing potted plants at his vehicle. The man said the woman, identified as 44-year-old Rhonda Patterson of Lawrenceville, became upset when he did not answer the door. When police arrived, they found Patterson banging on the door. The Buford man came outside once police arrived and said he had not opened the door because he suspected Patterson was "probably intoxicated and suffered from several mental disorders." He further advised she no longer lived at the residence.
Patterson, according to the report, appeared to have been drinking and, at one point, allegedly approached the Buford man as if she intended to strike him. When the officer attempted to restrain her, Patterson reportedly began swearing.
"As I placed her in handcuffs, which were double locked and checked for fit, she continued to scream and tell [the Buford man] that she wanted to kill him," the officer noted in the report. "While in the back of my patrol car, I could still hear her yelling, 'Let me out of here so I can kick his ass.' Patterson continued this until I dropped her off at jail."
She was charged with one count of disorderly conduct and released to Gwinnett County Sheriff's deputies without incident.
CLOTHING COVER FAILS TO FOOL THIEF: A woman's attempt to hide her handbag under a piece of clothing failed to keep a thief from stealing the bag during the Buford woman's May 26 trip to a Dacula grocery store.

WALLET STOLEN WHILE WOMAN TENDS TO DAUGHTER: A Braselton woman told police she put her wallet down as she was trying on shoes during a May 27 visit to a Hamilton Creek Parkway store in Dacula. According to the woman, her daughter "started to whine" so she stepped away from her wallet to tend to her daughter. When she returned, her wallet was gone. Store surveillance showed a female pick up the wallet, put it back down and continue the aisle. The female then reconsiders, returns to the wallet, takes it and leaves the store. The case is listed as active.
