Woman accuses ‘friend’ of theft in Cumming

Posted:

CUMMING, Ga. — A woman called 911 after she discovered pills and $55 in cash were missing from her purse.

On May 1, deputies were dispatched to a home in the 2000 block of Bethelview Road for unknown trouble.

Deputies said the woman was vague talking about the incident and dispatchers had difficulty getting information from her when she called.

When deputies arrived, the woman told deputies she gave her friend a ride home. After dropping her off, the woman said she found her empty pill bottle and the cash missing.

Deputies talked to the friend and she denied taking the pills.

The friend’s daughter was at home when she was dropped off. The daughter told deputies her mother had dropped her purse on the bed after she came inside.

Deputies searched the purse and did not find the pills or cash.

The daughter said her mother and the friend had tried to sell the pills earlier that day to get cash.

Deputies confronted the woman about the daughter’s story and she eventually said she did try to sell the pills.
