This is an alert as reported by a Garner Rd resident on 02/28/11:
This morning, a man (caucasion, blonde, 40ish, well dressed) knocked on our door at 7:15 AM. I live off Garner Rd., Mt Park area of Lilburn. His story was that his son is sick with asthma and he needed money to buy his medicine because he left his wallet at church yesterday. I did not give him money, and he drove off very quickly when my husband pulled up in our driveway after taking our son to school. After I told my husband the story, he drove off looking for him and found him in the neighborhood behind us ( Beech Forest ?) off Garner , and he was approaching someone else’s door. My husband pulled in behind him and wrote his tag number down. The man rushed toward my husband very nervously asking what he was doing, and my husband let him know that he would be calling the police and reporting his suspicious behavior. He told my husband he was just looking for gas money and he rushed off in his car.
My husband did call the police. He was driving a late model, dark blue, Jeep Cherokee 4×4.
If someone meeting this description comes to your door, call 911 first, then follow up with the non-emergency number (770) 513-5700 if you can identify him.
