Woman reports nosy neighbor
SNELLVILLE - A Snellville woman reported her neighbor has been eavesdropping on her telephone calls for several months.
The female neighbor had even overheard the victim's bank account information and didn't reveal she could hear the conversations because "she didn't give her a ride" on one occasion, according to police reports.
When the victim called police, the officer could hear a faint female voice in the background saying "This is the first time I have ever listened to your conversation" and "bring it on." The officer then called the suspect directly. The woman admitted she had heard the victim's phone conversations for the past few months because the neighbor's phone signal interfered with her phone. However, the suspect never called the phone company to correct the problem or told the victim about it.
