Thief steals Christmas decorations in Forsyth County

Posted:

CUMMING, Ga. — A man claiming to be a carpet cleaner is suspected of taking several items belonging to a woman in the 7800 block of Little Mill Road, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

On Oct. 3, the victim told deputies her landlord had scheduled someone to clean her carpets in the afternoon before because she was about to move.

When she came home at 11:30 a.m., a man with an unmarked white van was at her home and said he was the carpet cleaner. He said the landlord had left him a code for a lockbox key.

After the man left, the woman went inside her garage and saw her lawnmower, carpet steamer, hand tools and a box of Christmas decorations were all missing.

It’s unclear if the man was actually from the carpet cleaning company.
