Officers from the Winder Police Department were dispatched Dec. 5 to Capital Avenue in reference to someone running over a mailbox.
Upon arrival officers immediately noticed a brick mailbox had been completely destroyed.
There were pieces of headlights and a bumper lying on the ground next to the destroyed property.
The homeowner explained that she heard a loud noise around five in the morning, and she said the cost to fix the mailbox was approximately $1,000.
Around 9:30 officers got a call about a stolen vehicle on West Williams Street.
When officers arrived at the residence, they noticed a Ford Van with heavy front-end damage sitting crooked in the driveway.
The victim, Ed Almond, explained that his daughter had taken his van without permission and that she has done that several times in the past.
Terri Lynn Almond explained to officers that her father had left the keys out and she had several medical conditions including schizophrenia and bi-polar disease.
Lynn explained to officers that she had been taking her medications including Xanax, and Lortab prior to taking the vehicle.
While being questioned by police, Lynn began calling her father a liar and claimed he had given her the keys.
The keys were recovered from Ms. Almonds coat pocket.
She was then arrested for leaving the scene of an accident and theft by taking.
