Pantless Woman Flees From Police
Intoxicated companion also lands in jail.
An unruly man and woman gave Winder Police their eyes, hands and ears full after a traffic stop. According to the police report, the two were drinking when the woman took off running down the street wearing no pants. When caught the woman refused an officer’s order to lie down and the officer subsequently pushed her over, prompting the man to say, “Don't touch her, I'm going to beat your [expletive deleted]." The pair face multiple charges.
A peeping Tom was more successful in his efforts to escape apprehension. The suspect used a stolen ladder in an attempt to see into a second-story window recently in the Stone Mountain area. Police responded after the woman resident called 911 to report seeing a man peering into her upstairs bedroom. The man fled, but police found the ladder he used leaning up against the house. The ladder ended up being stolen from a neighbor’s yard a week before the incident.
In Athens, it was stolen jewelry that led to an arrest. An Athens woman is accused of using a house-cleaning job to case the residence of an elderly man and steal almost $18,000 worth of silver and jewelry. The woman was charged with theft by taking and exploitation of disabled or elder persons.
