An unemployed, heavy-set south Macon man apparently figured out a way to treat himself to free breakfasts. On April 8, a staffer at The Medical Center of Central Georgia told a hospital cop that a 54-year-old Wilson Street man had been repeatedly going to the fifth floor and taking food from patients trays. According to an incident report, the cop took an elevator to the fifth floor about 9 a.m. And there the fellow was, with a cup of coffee in each hand and food in his mouth, chewing. The man, who had been cited for loitering there in the past, told the officer he had a doctors appointment -- which he did, nine days later. The man, charged with trespassing, was taken to jail.
The proprietor of a Millerfield Road beauty salon said a friend dropped by April 3 for a hairdo. The shop owner informed her friend that the hairdo would cost $90. Fine, the friend said. But when the hairdo was done, the friend told the hairdresser she didnt have enough cash. According to a Bibb County sheriffs deputys report on the matter, the hairdresser then followed the friend to an ATM and collected her payment. Late that night, the friend began texting the hairdresser, saying that she was going to (expletive) her up and get some money back, and that her husband has the guns to do it, the incident report said. The hairdresser noted that in the past her friends husband had told the hairdresser that something wasnt right about the friend. The hairdresser didnt care to press charges, saying she only wanted to make a record of the episode.
