Police arrest 911 caller

Cordele — CORDELE — The complainant in a disturbance complaint made to Cordele Police Department officers just after 9 p.m. Tuesday wound up being chastised and arrested.

Lt. Frank Wise and Cpl. Bruce Gourley said they received a call that a man whose name was provided was attempting to gain entry at a residence in the 1100 block of Drayton Rd. by kicking in a door.

The officers said when they arrived they found the accused standing near his car. Upon questioning him, the officers learned he had only come there to leave for one of his sons some food that was sitting on the porch.

The man said the complainant knew he was coming but would not allow him inside the residence when he knocked. When the officer went to the door, Shonte’ Armstrong, 30, responded and identified herself as the person who had called 911.

When told there was no evidence that an attempt had been made to kick in her door, Lt. Wise said Armstrong “quickly got an attitude, rolling her eyes and telling me I was calling her a liar.”

When told it was against the law to make an unnecessary call to 911, Lt. Wise said she continued to be argumentative and it was at that point he took her into custody.

In other activity between Monday and early Wednesday, officers:

— Received a theft report filed by an employee of Ryder Truck Rentals at 315 Midway Rd.

The complainant told Lt. Carrie Lull that sometime between 4:30 p.m. Sunday and 7:30 a.m. Monday someone broke the window of a truck and a Galaxy 949 CB radio.

— Made a lone shoplifting arrest.

Lt. Frank Wise said he and Cpl. Bruce Gourley went to Dollar General’s 16th Ave. E. location just before 7 p.m. Monday when employees reported a female dressed in a yellow shirt and blue blouse had stolen some items.

The 15-year-old suspect was found near another business in the area and upon consenting to have her purse searched was found to have in her possession various unpaid goods valued at $39.59. The case has been turned over to juvenile officials.

— Charged Minekia Ameyuna Jones, 19, of 1113 Drayton Rd., with contempt of court. Cpl. Marcus Sales served a warrant on Jones at the Crisp County Law Enforcement Center.

— Said several objects in the Turton Shopping Center parking lot and two vehicles parked in various areas of the city were vandalized.

Lt. Lull said trash cans behind businesses in the shopping center were knocked over, a dresser on a dollie was rolled into the street, a bucket of airbrush jars was smashed when thrown to the ground and a plastic cover was knocked off a security light.

Two preschool girls were accused of making several scratches on the car of a woman residing in the 100 block of Fifth Ave. W. Cpl.. Marcus Sales said the mother of the youngsters left the area as the complainant was calling police to report the incident.

A resident of the 1000 block of 10th St. S. told Sgt. Charles Pheil someone made two dents on his 2003 Chevrolet Impala  sometime Monday night.

— Responded to a call involving either deliberate vandalism or an attempted burglary.

A resident of the 200 block of 12th St. S. told Lt. Wise and Cpl. Gourley that the was awakened just after 4 a.m. Wednesday by the sound of breaking glass in his living room. Upon investigating, he found the window screen also had been removed.
