A Bartow County Sheriff’s Office deputy met with a Cartersville resident on Thursday who claimed a credit card company named Credit Card Member withdrew $1,500 from her bank account without permission. She received a call from the company, who told her if she sent money the company would clear her credit debt. Originally, she agreed but never sent the money. After reviewing her bank statement, she saw the company took the money. She contacted the bank immediately and the money was returned to her account; however, the company continues to contact her.

Counterfeit money used to buy pizza

A Dominos Pizza driver was flagged down on Ember Way by a white male in dark clothing while she was en route to her next delivery at 26 Ember Way. The unknown man told the driver he had ordered the pizza. The driver allegedly told police she gave the suspect the pizza and he handed her two $10 bills. She admitted the money felt different but she did not think anything was wrong. Upon returning to the store, she noticed the money was not real.

Unlocked car raided

On Saturday, a resident of 4632 Annes Trace, Acworth, called BCSO in reference to two subjects walking around, wearing hoodies and possibly entering autos, according to the incident report.

Man arrested, meth found

The manager of the RaceTrac Store at 11 Baker Road, Cartersville, phoned police when a man began acting suspicious and had no money to make a purchase. The responding officer saw the man, later identified as Kyle Erwin Skinner, on a motorcycle parked at a gas pump. He told police he was waiting for someone to bring him money for gas. According to the incident report, Skinner mumbled as he spoke to the officer and told him he was doing good but had been arrested for manufacturing marijuana.

The officer placed Skinner in handcuffs and seated him in the patrol car after learning he had outstanding warrants for child support. While confirming the vehicle identification number, the officer opened the compartment under the seat and found a cigarette pack containing a white substance that appeared to be methamphetamine, according to the police report. Also, a syringe and a metal spoon were found.
