A Newnan woman was arrested after withdrawing money accidentally deposited into her account.

Christy Marie Golden, 40, was charged with theft of lost or mislaid property.

Last December, officers from St. George, Utah contacted Newnan police, stating a St. George resident had sold some property and asked the funds from the sale be transferred into his Wells Fargo bank account.

When it was discovered the routing numbers were wrong, the man attempted to get the funds removed from the account and discovered almost $14,000 was missing.

Officials from Wells Fargo reportedly identified the owner of the account as Golden and discovered she withdrew $10,000 cash from her account before the bank was able to charge the original amount back to the victim.

A Turin man was arrested after using a credit card from a wallet he found on a playground.

Caleb Moss, 20, was charged with fraud, theft of lost or mislaid property and theft of a financial transaction card.

Senoia police said a man who was using the Seavy Street Park playground with his family discovered his wallet was missing after riding the swings with his daughter.

He recalled several people in their early 20s were using the swings at the same time but then left the park quickly.

After police were able to get a description of the car, they reviewed video surveillance footage from several stores where the stolen card was used and were able to identify the suspect as Moss, according to Detective Jason Ercole with the Senoia Police Department.

A Palmetto man was arrested after being caught in the act of burglarizing a home.

Police responded to a residence on Sweetbriar Drive in Newnan after receiving an alarm call.

At the home, police noticed a window air conditioning unit had been pushed in from the window, the window to the back door was shattered and the door was cracked open.

Inside a bedroom closet, police found the suspect, identified as Bobby Daniel Jackson. Several pieces of jewelry were found on Jackson, who stated he got the items from the home.

Jackson, 29, was charged with burglary, possession of tools for the commission of crime, suspended license and altering a license plate.

An Athens woman was arrested in downtown Newnan after refusing to pay for her meal.

Police responded to Meat ‘N’ Greet and met with staff who said the offender said she would transfer money onto her Cash App card to pay. When the bill arrived, the woman said she was waiting on her significant other to pay the bill.

The woman then left the restaurant without paying for her $31 tab. She was charged with theft of services.

A woman who asked to be taken to jail was granted her request.

A deputy with the sheriff’s office pulled over a car who failed to move over from the right lane while another deputy was parked in the emergency lane conducting a traffic stop.

The woman became belligerent and yelled at the deputy for pulling her over, while screaming at cars passing by on the interstate. When officers explained to her the reason behind the traffic stop, she began walking around her car and onto the roadway.

The woman denied being on any drugs and kept walking in the roadway. When she was asked to sign the citation, she refused and continued to walk in the interstate.

She was arrested and charged with the Georgia Move Over Law, obstruction of officers and pedestrians on highways.

A pizza delivery man was arrested after attempting to run over his customer.

The driver told police he recognized the victim as a man who had sexual relations with his ex-girlfriend while the driver was still dating her in the past.

After completing the transaction, the driver placed the vehicle in reverse and slammed on the gas, almost striking the victim, according to the report.

The victim then walked to the middle of the road and yelled at the driver who reportedly attempted to strike him again with the vehicle. Police interviewed the driver who said he delivered a pizza, said a few words and left the residence.

The driver, identified as Zachery Haines, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault.
