Anti-mask beauty store customers threaten employees


A family who arrived at a Peachtree City retail store on Dec. 21 objected to the store’s policy on wearing masks. Police were called after the family became loud and “made idle threats” to fight employees.

Officers on Dec. 21 responded to Ulta Beauty on Ga. Highway 54 West in reference to a 9-1-1 hang-up call. Store staff members told police that they had a domestic disturbance involving a family that left the scene.

Employees told officers the family came into the store without wearing masks, and when store staff confronted the family about store policy the family became loud, and made idle threats to fight staff members, according to police reports.

A search was conducted to locate the other party, but officers were unable to locate anyone. The employees were escorted to their vehicles, reports said.

Also on Dec. 21, officers responded to another entering auto call at the Tires Plus store on Hwy. 54 West.

Also on Dec. 22, an officer responded a Middleton Drive residence off Walt Banks Road in reference to an entering auto. The complainant advised that nothing was missing from the vehicle that had been left unlocked, reports said.


  1. No matter your opinion about mask…IMHO it’s better to wear one and avoid such incidents.

    Crazy how people still leave valuables and items in their cars that thieves can see…I actually guarded a car with an iPhone in the passenger seat till a lady came back out of a store…it was plain to see when I parked next to her car….considering that for many people their phone is proof of their existence, it must be a terrible blow to have it stolen and then “virtually cease to exist”.
