Georgia State crimes for the month of June

Crime happens.

And, in Atlanta, it occurs in various contexts and formats, and it occurs often.

Here are last month’s stories taken from the Georgia State Police reports.

Unlicensed driver takes the road less traveled

On June 5, Georgia State University officers arrested a Non-Georgia State University affiliate for driving unlicensed.

How did the officer know this individual was unlicensed?

He didn’t, until he pulled her over for driving the wrong way on a one-way street.

So much for subtlety.

The individual was arrested, processed and subsequently transported to Fulton County Jail.

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure

On June 6, Georgia State police officers took out the trash.

Two Georgia State officers were on patrol when they observed Atlanta and Capitol Police draw their weapons on a suspect in a stolen vehicle.

One of the suspects fled the vehicle and was chased down by police, who later arrested the suspect after pulling him from a trash dumpster.

Soap-stealing situation

Sometimes, to track down a thief, investigators have to be willing to get their hands dirty.

In this case, a Georgia State staff member reported last month that someone had been stealing soap dispensers from both the men and women’s restrooms.

The dispensers were later discovered broken in a bag.

The case is currently being handled by investigations.

But the stolen dispensers have since been replaced. So while the thieves may have gotten their hands dirty stealing dispensers, at least we can still keep ours clean.


For one Georgia State student on the afternoon of June 13, riding his bike suddenly became a lot more uncomfortable.

The seat to his bicycle had been stolen.

The student stated he parked the bike at 12:15 p.m., but upon returning at 4:00 p.m., the seat of the bicycle was missing.

If you happen to see any seemingly seedy characters walking around campus, carrying a bicycle seat, please contact authorities immediately.
