CUMMING, Ga. — A woman and a man bunked with a friend during the ice storm, and stole items from his home, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

A man in the 6000 block of Nantucket Cove told deputies he got a call from his friend at about 8 p.m. Jan. 28.

She asked the man if she and her friend could come over, because it was unsafe to drive. He said he allowed the woman and her unknown male friend to stay the night until the weather cleared up.

He went to bed about 1 a.m. while the visitors stayed up in the living room. When he awoke the next morning, the two had left without telling him. He said he did not think anything about it and started working on his computer.

Then, he noticed two $250 external hard drives with $3,000 worth of his music work on them, and a $50 high definition cable missing.

He said he went to call the friend to see she if had taken them, but she had locked him out of his cellphone and changed his password.

He finally got a hold of the friend, and she said she would return the items. She dropped off the cable and said she would return the hard drives later.

The woman never returned.
