Mayor Dennis Kintigh’s office reported that the mayor was the victim of threats from an unknown female, according to police reports.
Sometime between noon and 1 p.m. on Tuesday, a woman contacted City Hall and left two different voice messages that Sabrina Morales, public information liaison with the Roswell Police Department, described as “vulgar and explicit.”
“The mayor didn’t know who the person was, and the phone number was not available,” Morales said. “If the officers are able to find out who this person is, or where they were calling from, they will be able to do a follow-up.”
Tools stolen from vehicle
Roswell Police responded to a vehicle burglary at Home Depot, located at 2350 N. Main St. According to the report, the vehicle was locked but the sliding window was not locked. Thieves entered the vehicle and stole $4,000 worth of tools.
Swimming pool fraud reported
Roswell Police also responded to a report of fraud on Tuesday. A 56-year-old man reported that he hired someone to work on his swimming pool, and paid more than $4,000 for the work to be done — but work was never completed.
The report was filed in the 3000 block of North Washington Avenue, and the man reportedly has been trying to get his money refunded or the work completed since March 14.
