The following information was supplied by the Milton police department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.
A truck rental company reported on Dec. 6 that a customer rented a truck from Home Depot on Windward Parkway on Oct. 4 that was due back on Oct. 11, yet it still hasn't been brought back by Dec. 4. A Penske truck rental employee said attempts to reach the woman by phone have failed. An attempt to update the bill also failed when the credit card used for the rental was declined. Attempts by Milton police to call the woman went to voice mail, with no call being returned. The rental agent was told he needed to send a certified or registered letter by mail asking that the truck be returned. Only after five business days and after a return receipt is received can a warrant be sought for theft by conversion. That's also the earliest the police…

Hut no. 8 just opened in the Silos shopping center on Crabapple Road, along the Alpharetta/Roswell border. It's a used clothing store that looks like a mall store, with cheaper prices.
When you walk into Hut no. 8, you could be in any mall clothing store. Until you look at the price tags. Instead of selling for $20, an Abercrombie & Fitch t-shirt is marked at $4 or $5. Designer jeans – some of them new – go for $50 or less. This is the new, used clothing store. No digging through racks to find the top brands. They’re all here, neatly arranged by size and color. Jeans are hung diagonally, instead of folded, so that you can easily spot both your size and the designer label. “That’s the main thing we’re going for, is to have the resale and offer people good prices, but not have that used feel to it,” said Chris Lee, one of the owners. The clothes aren’t sold on consignment, but rather, are bought outright. The store pays …
