Liquor thieves hit Flat Creek Country Club


The clubhouse at the Flat Creek Country Club in Peachtree City is out more than $1,200 in alcohol after the building was entered and the bottles stolen during the overnight hours of Feb. 24.

An officer on Feb. 25 at approximately 4:51 p.m. responded to the clubhouse in reference to a theft, according to police reports.

The complainant reported that an unknown person or persons had entered the building overnight between 2-3 a.m. and stole approximately $1,261 in liquor bottles, the police report said.

“Camera footage inside the building captured the offenders committing the theft. The complainant and staff said they noticed the burglary upon arrival this morning but waited until the afternoon hours to complete the inventory of the total theft,” the police report noted.

Pictures were taken but there was nothing to process. There were no signs of forced entry to the back door where the offenders entered, the report said.

In another case, police on Feb. 28 were dispatched to a business on Auburn Court in reference to an identity fraud complaint.

Upon arrival, it was determined that an unknown person had fraudulently cashed a counterfeit company check on the company’s account, the police report said.

The unknown person did use the victim’s identifying information and create a fraudulent check in the amount of $19,224.88, the report indicated, adding that the check was not processed, therefore the victim was not out any money.

In a final case, officers on March 1 at approximately 1:37 p.m. responded to Christ Our Shepherd Lutheran Church at Ga. Highway 54 and Peachtree Parkway in reference to a theft from one of the church vans.

The complainant advised that the van’s catalytic converter had been taken off and stolen, the police report said.
