Sometime about midnight on a recent Saturday, a young woman who lives at a north Macon apartment complex made an unusual discovery. “You’re telling me,” she told the Cop Shop the other day. “When I walk outside and find that on the roof of my car, it’s a little scary.” What she found was a dead deer, a doe, on the hood of her Hyundai and a dead raccoon on the car’s roof. She called the cops. The woman, 22, had no idea why the carcasses were there — or who put them there — while she was parked at the Falls at Spring Creek on Wesleyan Drive Oct. 10. “I don’t have any leads on who’s done it or anything,” she said. “I asked the cop, ‘Have you ever heard of or seen anything like this?’ And he said, ‘To be honest with you, no ma’am.'"
Dispatches: Though it may come as a surprise, soaps and grooming products are some of the most frequently shoplifted items. Hardly a week goes by that local cops aren’t called to dollar stores or supermarkets about someone pilfering shampoo or body wash. Maybe it makes sense, though. Who wants to stink? On Oct. 11, a young man reportedly went into the Family Dollar on Hillcrest Boulevard in Macon and stole a $2 washcloth. The day before at the CVS on Gray Highway, a man snatched up $16 worth of Dial soap and five sticks of Secret deodorant. He crammed the items into his cargo shorts and bolted. . . . The manager at Whispering Woods apartments on Northside Drive in Macon said a tenant kept calling her to complain about “her carpet being wet,” an Oct. 8 Bibb County sheriff’s report said. The manager said the tenant had left phone messages calling the manager a vulgar name. A sheriff’s deputy told the tenant to leave the manager alone, and the tenant agreed. But as the deputy was leaving, the tenant showed up at the manager’s office, hollering that the manager was “a lying (expletive),” the report said. The deputy told the tenant to go back to her apartment, and she did. But she called the manager again, the report said, so the deputy arrested the tenant for making harassing phone calls.
