Harassing phone calls land Lilburn cheerleader in jail
SNELLVILLE - A 17-year-old Lilburn cheerleader was arrested after allegedly making harassing phone calls to a former friend.
Molly Chandler was taken into custody last week for allegedly calling a fellow student and leaving threatening messages on her voice mail.
According to police reports, Chandler called the girl several names, threatened to toilet-paper her home and said she was going to keep calling. The girl's parents told police they also think Chandler is responsible for painting a cuss word on their driveway and toilet-papering their house in May.
Chandler said that she was with a group of friends at cheerleading camp when the calls took place.
"We all did it," she told the officer. "It wasn't only me."
She later told police she only called the girl about Girl Scout Cookies and said she knew who was responsible for the vandalism, according to reports.
Woman gets taken for a ride by man wanting to buy car
LAWRENCEVILLE - An elderly Lawrenceville woman came up short when a man stopped at her home and offered to buy her car.
The woman told police that the man appeared at her house Sunday to see if she needed any help with lawn work. She told the man that she did have some rocks that needed to be moved. While the two were talking about the yard work, the man took notice of the 1978 Ford Thunderbird parked in the women's driveway, according to reports.
The man asked the elderly woman if she wanted to sell the car. She told him that for $2,000, he could have it.
The two went inside to negotiate a deal. The man drank a glass of water and smoked a cigarette and then asked the woman to see the title and deed. He also asked to use the restroom. While the woman was in her bedroom retrieving the documents, she began to feel uneasy and suspected the man was up to no good. She grabbed her pistol for protection.
The woman came back into the living area and showed the man the papers. He then asked her to show him the basement. With the gun hidden behind her back, the woman told the man that he could go and look at the basement, but that she was not going with him.
After that, the man left. The woman began cleaning up and went into the bathroom used by the man. There, she saw a towel on the top of the toilet. Underneath was her wallet - minus $60 in cash, the report said.
