Police Blotter: People Walking Around At 3 AM Are Theft Suspects; Woman Skipping Out On Paying For $29 Artificial Eyelashes

  • Saturday, July 3, 2021

A woman on East 45th Street called police to say a man had come onto her property and was harassing her. When police arrived the woman said that after the officer left on a previous call for suspicious activity, the man came to her fence and was telling her that she is the reason he is being evicted from her home. The officer spoke to the man who said he was speaking to her from the street and had told her that she is the reason he is being evicted from his home. The man said his wife has cancer and that he hopes that the woman will get evicted from her home so that she goes through what he is. The woman said the man threatened her by saying that he would try to have her evicted from her home and that is how he was harassing her. The officer asked the woman if she would like to have him trespassed from her property, that he stated he never walked
on, and she replied, "Yes." The officer told the man that if he goes on her property, the officer will arrest him.

A woman on Hickory Valley Road said her ex-boyfriend damaged her mailboxes. She said she was speaking with him on the phone and said she was on her way home when the two of them were speaking. When she got home she heard a loud bang and tires squealing. She checked to see what it was and discovered her mailboxes were broken. The woman said her nephew saw her ex-boyfriend's truck hitting the mailboxes. There was a headlight and other debris in the yard as well. The woman said her ex-boyfriend drives a new Ford F-250 extended cab and he lives in an unknown location in Hixson. She felt as if he was parked nearby and waiting for her to return as he wanted to talk to her about their relationship. She told him she did not want to continue a relationship and that is when he drove away. It was unclear if the damage done to the mailboxes was intentional. Also it was not confirmed if the ex-boyfriend was the driver of the vehicle. The vehicle was no longer there and the officer was unable to find the vehicle to determine the
damage.

An employee on Brainerd Road flagged down an officer to say they had a customer receive $29 worth of services in the form of artificial eyelashes.

She agreed to allow the customer to leave so she could get money and return and pay. She said the woman never returned and she didn't say when they needed to return by. Because she let the customer leave without establishing a clear return by date a warrant will not be applied for now. She wanted the officer to attempt to contact the customer and request she return and make payment.
