An off-duty employee of the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office called 911 after seeing what she feared might be a dead man.
The woman said she was driving home when she saw a man sprawled across the back seat of a vehicle.
When the deputy arrived, he found an unconscious Asian male lying across the two back seats of the vehicle. According to the incident report, there was a puddle of vomit next to the male’s head and “spit still dangling from his mouth.”
The deputy roused the man and asked him what had happened. After identifying himself, the male said he was not going to lie to the deputy and admitted having “a lot” to drink.
The man said his friends were supposed to drive him home, but, for some reason, had abandoned him at Shackleford Park.
The deputy noticed a strong odor of alcoholic beverage on the man’s breath. Before he could obtain the man’s address, the man asked the deputy to “hold on a second” so that he could vomit. When the man finished vomiting, he provided the deputy with his home address. The deputy drove the man home and released him to his family.
Customers locked in store during ‘personal emergency’
Deputies were dispatched to a Bethlehem gas station on Sept. 4 after a report of a possible armed robbery.
When the first deputy arrived at the scene, he met with a gas station employee who advised there had been no robbery.
The cashier explained that she had a “personal emergency” and had to lock a few customers in the building while she ran to the back of the store.
Alpacas ‘vandalized,’ fleece ruined
A Hoschton woman contacted authorities after discovering three of her alpacas had been “vandalized.”
Three of the woman’s alpacas, whose thick coat is harvested and used for yarn and other products, were missing sections of fleece.
The woman said the stolen sections were too small to be profitable for the thieves, but ruined the fleece for this year’s harvest.
With each intact coat valued at $350, the total estimated damage was $1,050.
The alpaca owner explained that the animals are not easy to catch and have to be properly restrained while being clipped. The woman believes it would have taken several people to cause the damage visible on her animals.
There are no known suspects.
Chickens not welcome in Auburn
A new Auburn resident was surprised to learn he had not moved as far out to the country as he had thought.
Police were called to Carter Road in response to a report of loose chickens. When the officer arrived, he spotted six chickens under a tree.
The resident said the chickens were not his and directed the officer to a nearby home. The officer was eventually able to make contact with the son of the chicken owner.
The son advised that his family had moved to Auburn because they were not allowed to have chickens within the Lawrenceville city limits. The officer advised the family was not allowed to have chickens within the Auburn city limits either.
The man was issued a citation for having livestock in violation of city ordinance.
I have chickens and two hogs on my property in Orburn and always have. No damn yankee move in wannabe is ever going to tell me I cant do what ive always done.I wont be paying any fine either to these people.
i called the city of Auburn to see if I could have laying hens. I was told not with in the city limits. No livestock is allowed. but i can have a horse. Go figure. if i hitch the horse to a plow in my back yard that makes it livestock and if I put a saddle on it its a pet. Small town government is hilarious.
