Barrett writes in and gives us all a heads-up of an attempted break-in at the Pure Gas Station on East Ponce Monday night.
Just wanted to inform of an attempted break in last night at the Pure Station. Luckily they didn’t make it in but with the holidays coming it might be a good idea for residents and business owners to be aware when locking up at night.
And here’s the official Decatur Police report from Deputy Keith Lee…
n 10/21/2014 at approximately 0722 hours, Officer Speed responded to the Pure Gas Station which is located at 249 East Ponce de Leon Avenue Decatur, GA, 30030 in reference to a previous burglary. Officer Speed arrived and met with the complainant, identified as Barrett Tibbetts. Tibbetts informed Officer Speed the business was secure and undisturbed when he had left on 10/20/2014 at approximately 1800 hours. Tibbetts stated he observed the front door to be damaged, but still secure, when he arrived back at the location on 10/21/2014 at approximately 0700 hours. Officer Speed observed the front door trim to have all been removed, as well as the mailbox in the doorway. Officer Speed photographed the damage then processed the scene. Officer Speed recovered five latent print cards from the outside of the front door glass. Officer Speed supplied Tibbetts with a case number. The photographs were attached to the report. The latent print cards were turned over to Sergeant Vandiver of the City of Decatur Criminal Investigations Division.
