Milton Woman's Wedding Ring Stolen While She Practiced Tennis

A Milton woman lost her wedding ring to a thief at her subdivision's pool and tennis parking lot.

The woman said she parked her car in the Brookshade subdivision off Hopewell Road on March 19 at 9:15 a.m. Before getting out of her car, she put her watch and wedding ring in a black cloth bag, leaving it on the front seat. When she came back to her car after her tennis practice, the ring was gone but not the watch.

She told Milton police the ring was insured for $12,000.

Milton Residents Not the First to File Their Tax Returns

Two more Milton residents discovered they weren't the first ones to file tax returns using their names. Someone used their personal information to file fraudulent tax returns.

On March 21 a Weycroft Circle resident told Milton police that she filed her taxes a week earlier. But her tax accountant told her someone else used her Social Security number to file a tax return on March 8.

A day later, on March 22, a Bethany Bend resident told police that when he tried to file his taxes the IRS told him of possible fraudulent use of his personal information. Tax returns were filed in 2010 and 2011 using his name and information. Checks were mailed to what the IRS called his Riverdale address for $3,510 and $3,363.  But the victim said he has never lived in Riverdale.

He's since frozen all of his accounts and notified the major credit bureaus.

Milton Man Believes Ex-Girlfriend Has Been Using His Credit Card

A Morris Road man reported to Milton police that his credit card was used twice for payments he didn't make.

On March 20 he contacted police, telling them the January and March payments were made from his Bank of America account to an American Express account he once shared with his now ex-girlfriend.
