CUMMING, Ga. – A patrolling deputy responded to a report of a man walking in the roadway in the attempt to flag down passing vehicles May 20 near the BP gas station on Bannister Road.
Deputies said the man was rambling incoherently while holding two stolen beverages. He was asked where he lived and quickly responded.
The suspect then claimed he was driving around with a man under the code name “Bob,” and he refused to say where the vehicle had gone off to. BP employees refused to press charges for the alleged shoplifting and public disruption at the store.
The suspect then admitted that he had been using methamphetamine for two months and used it recently that day.
The suspect was handcuffed and transported to Forsyth County Jail.
