CUMMING, Ga. — A man and a woman said they had permission to take items from a company’s dumpster, but deputies found out that was not the case, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

On Sept. 7, deputies saw a woman inside the dumpster and a man standing beside it at Graves Overhead Door, 4101 Aaron Sosbee Road.

When deputies pulled into the parking lot, the two were in their cars and attempted to leave.

Deputies asked what they were doing at the store when it was closed, and the woman said she had permission to get televisions and metal from there. She said a part owner of the company gave her permission.

Deputies called the a co-owner who said no one had permission to be on the property during closed hours nor was anyone allowed to take metal out of the dumpster.

Deputies talked to the other suspect who said he only came along for the ride with the woman.

Deputies said he seemed nervous during the conversation, and they said his car was loaded with chainsaws, a leaf blower, scrap metal and tools.

Deputies handcuffed Timothy Wright, 53, and Amanda Pittman, 32, and took them to Forsyth County Detention Center.

The two were charged with loitering and prowling, misdemeanors.
