Cop Shop: Odds and ends

A man who operates a deer-cooler business on Wimpy Road in south Bibb County reported Nov. 20 that someone had entered the cooler, cut the head off a customer’s seven-pointer and stole it.

An apparent scamster called a Wesleyan Way woman Nov. 12 and said she had won the Publisher’s Clearing House sweepstakes. The caller went so far as to have a celebratory pizza delivered to the 86-year-old woman’s house, a Bibb County sheriff’s report stated. Later the caller said the woman would need to fork over $500 to assure delivery of her sweepstakes prize. The woman did not give the caller any money.

Two women in Macon’s Tindall Heights housing project argued Nov. 13 and then made up. According to a sheriff’s report, one of the women busted a window with a broom after the other supposedly called her daughter “a mutt.”

On Nov. 14, the manager of AP’s Hidden Hideaway on Broadway reported that an employee tried to steal “a large amount of various items” from the Macon bar. But the suspect, a 30-year-old woman, was caught in the act, the report stated. She had a trash bag crammed full of food, nine T-shirts, Christmas stockings, a pair of Santa Claus figurines and a bottle of Absolut Vodka.
