A woman had more contact with law enforcement than she expected after calling Auburn Police for help with her missing dog.
The woman, Regina Anderson, 29, of 64 Main Street lot 24 in Auburn, informed officers that her boxer puppy Wauka had been missing for three days. Anderson said the dog was inside the residence of Stephen Brooks, 66, of 64 Main Street lot 66.
When officers asked Brooks if the dog was his, Brooks insisted it was. Brooks said a woman had given him the dog two months earlier. Police made contact with the woman who subsequently denied giving Brooks a dog. When police confronted Brooks again, he admitted that he had lied saying he felt sorry for the dog.
Brooks was cited for interference with a police officer and the dog was returned to Anderson.
Central dispatch then notified the officers that Anderson had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear. Anderson was arrested and transported to the Gwinnett County Detention Center. Wauka’s current location is unknown.
Other recent arrests made by Auburn Police include:
• Jessica Patrice Eldridge, 31, 316 Carter Road, obstruction and family violence battery.
• Calvin O’Neal Martin Jr., 33, 605 Mountcreek Church Road, Monroe, outstanding warrant.
Windows smashed in domestic dispute
An Auburn man is facing charges of criminal damage to property after smashing the windows of his estranged wife’s car.
According to the report, the man and his wife have been separated for several months. On March 15, the man brought flowers to his estranged wife and asked if they could discuss some of their problems.
During the two hour long conversation, the wife revealed that she had slept with another man. At that point, her husband became “uncontrollably upset.” The man walked out the door and shortly thereafter, the woman heard the sound of breaking glass.
Before leaving the residence, the husband smashed every window in his wife’s vehicle.
The woman declined to press charges, but, as in other domestic violence situations, the officers were obligated to press charges even if the victim refuses to do so.
At the time of the report, the husband remained at large.

I like how the news is so sensational, even in the little town of Auburn. The title to the story is a grabber made to make the reader believe that this was big news. I suppose for Auburn a dognapping and 2 arrests that stemmed from it is pretty exciting stuff. What bothers me the most is the way the lady was portrayed in this story. My question is, why didn't the writer investigate further so that she may know that the big arrest of the woman that tried to get her dog back was for a window tint violation? I mean, I know that is a crime...but...really....
