Police Blotter: Monica Helps Herself To Rolex, Wallet; Coke Employee "Wins" $2,500, Escalade

Thursday, May 1, 2014

Christopher Blake said he picked up a woman he knows only as Monica and took her to a motel in Dalton.

When he awoke the next morning, Monica was gone along with his Rolex watch and wallet.

He took Chattanooga Police to a couple of spots where he was told that she stayed. But there was no sign of her at a house on Windsor Street or another on Rawlings Street.

Robert Cates said he allowed a black male to step into his room on East 23rd Street to get out of the rain. He also offered the man some food.

The guest repaid his kindness by grabbing three of his movies and his stick deodrant, then running out the door.

He is missing Ghostkids, Madea and one more.

A thief took parts from a $3,000 heat/air unit at Mattress Firm on Wisdom Street.

A video showed a person pull up in a dark-colored, mid-size vehicle at 3:47 a.m.

Donald Brown said he was at work at Coca-Cola on Amnicola Highway when he got a call on his cellphone.

The man with a thick accent said he had won $2,500 along with a Cadillac Escalade. He was told they were on the way to deliver the loot and he should hurry home.

Mr. Brown, who said he was suspicious of the unexpected largesse, had an officer with the police fraud division with him the next time he talked with the prize purveyors.
