500 block of West Hull Avenue. Burglary. An officer met a property manager at 10:14 a.m. about a forced entry. The manager said he had shown the property and then locked it at 2 p.m. June 18, with a wooden board holding the back sliding door in place. He returned for another showing June 20, when he found sliding door off track and the board displaced. A pencil and a pistachio were by the sliding door, and the garage was unlocked. The screen door to the back porch had handle damage; a window appeared broken from the inside; and electricity was active inside without permission. The officer found a small hole in the screen door, which allowed access to the lock, and noticed the window hole was big enough for a small person to fit through. One latent print from the sliding door is in evidence. Estimated damage is $800.


16000 block of West Colonial Drive. Trespassing. An officer met a complainant at a gas station about a theft call. The complainant helped a customer reach a four pack of beer. The customer said he wanted a single beer, walked to the cooler and said the store had none. He pulled a beer from a four pack and then grabbed two other beers. He asked for a cup of ice at the counter but did not want to pay for it. He said he had to use the restroom and then returned to pay for the beer but was short on cash. He paid for the four pack and left. The complainant said she put back a single beer and noticed two missing, each from a separate four pack. Another officer checked the area and found the suspect at a motel, where half of a four pack was in the freezer, one beer was in the suspect’s hand and the other in his roommate’s hand. He said he had neither purchased nor taken other beers. 




300 block of Enterprise Street. Larceny. An officer met a shipping company’s investigator at 6:09 p.m. about a shipment of 60 cases of cell phones that had gone missing May 20. The investigator confirmed the cases had left Atlanta in a sealed truck, but on arrival at Enterprise Street, the employee who unloaded the truck marked the phones missing. The investigator had no specifics on the phones but estimated their value at $150,000.
