- On Dec. 15, a man called the Johns Creek Police Department after his AMC Theater online account had been hacked. According to the police report, several transactions were made in Minnesota and New York in October after a hacker gained access to his personal card attached to the online account. The man’s bank initially refunded him for all the transactions, but then reversed the funds and charged him again until he could obtain a police report for the incident. At the time of the police report, the only clue about the hacker’s identity was an email address. (Appen Media)
- On Dec. 15, the Johns Creek police were called to Fox Grape Lane due to a dispute between two neighbors. One man said his neighbor’s landscapers were blowing leaves onto his property and when he told them to stop, his neighbor came outside and yelled at him. The man then went back to his property. The neighbor followed him and got in his face yelling, “Do you want COVID?” Police advised the man that he could get a restraining order against his neighbor to prevent any further incidents.
