Camera found hidden in bushes at McDonald‘s


A curious find was made on Aug. 26 in Peachtree City adjacent to the McDonald’s restaurant on Ga. Highway 54 East.

Police reports stated that while on patrol, an officer was approached by a citizen who reported finding a telescopic pole-mounted camera.

“The citizen reported that it was in front of McDonalds in the bushes. The camera was located and verified not to belong to anyone at the restaurant or the construction crew. GDOT (Ga. Department of Transportation) was contacted and denied ownership,” the police report said.

In other criminal activity, on Aug. 23, officers responded to a suspicious person complaint at a Merrick Drive residence off MacDuff Parkway.

And on Aug. 25 at 12:40 p.m., officers responded to the area of Walmart and Home Depot in referencing to a male exposing himself.

Also in Peachtree City, officers on Aug. 29 responded to a Kennerly Way residence off Robinson Road to an entering auto report. The owner at approximately 6:20 p.m. reported unnamed items stolen from the unlocked vehicle.
