Elsewhere in Peachtree City, two incidents of computer-related theft took place with a couple of hours of each other and were reported to police.

Officers responded March 8 to a residence on Sauterne Way where a victim reported that he had been scammed out of $3,000 from an unknown person over the phone. The victim said his desktop computer had been hacked that morning, and he called what he thought was a number at Microsoft as instructed.

In a separate incident, officers went to a residence March 8 in reference to a theft complaint.
