The following Dacula, Buford and other northern Gwinnett County criminal incidents were recently investigated by the Gwinnett County Police Department:
WOMAN WARNS PARK PATRONS THEIR KIDS ARE GOING TO GROW UP TO BE STRIPPERS: A Dacula woman landed in jail after reportedly being "loud and aggressive" toward several park patrons and their children. Police were called to Rabbit Hill Park on the afternoon on May 24 after Dara Watson, 52, reportedly started "yelling at children, going crazy and throwing things." A witness told police Watson had thrown a radio some children had been listening to while dancing in one of the pavilions. Watson, the witness said, began to yell about the rap music, complained the parents were not controlling their children and warned that "the kids were all going to grow up to be strippers." Several parents also reportedly said Watson had accused the children of being "from the devil."
When interviewed by police, Watson said the girls were listening to "that rap music" and that it was bad.
"She stated that they were all dancing and shaking and that the parents weren't doing anything," the officer wrote. "She went on to say that the parents were bad parents and not controlling their kids as they should."
Watson, who allegedly admitted throwing the radio, was placed under arrest for disorderly conduct and transported to the Gwinnett County Jail.
Once the shop owner arrived at the scene, he advised the only item missing was the key to a white Honda Del Sol parked outside. An officer later found the key on the ground. Video surveillance showed the suspect near the Del Sol.
"The suspect did appear to be loading the Honda with items possibly from other cars in the parking lot then was possibly scared off by the first responding officer to arrive on scene," the officer noted in the report. The case is listed as active.
DENTIST OFFICE BURGLARIZED: Police responding to a May 23 burglary alarm at a Buford Village Way dentist office discovered a burglar or burglars had used a spark plug to break the glass of the front entry door. The only item reported missing was a Dell Laptop valued at $1,000. The business did not have video surveillance. The spark plug was placed into evidence.
EXPLETIVE SPRAY-PAINTED ON GARAGE DOOR: A Buford woman received a visit from a neighbor early on the morning of May 26 informing her that someone had vandalized her garage door overnight by using gold spray-paint to write the word "Bitch." There are no known witnesses.
