Norcross women found bound with tape

  • Follow Crime & courts

NORCROSS, Ga.  — Gwinnett County police are investigating the discovery by an officer of two women bound with tape.

Gwinnett police Cpl. E.J. Ritter said Friday that a woman bound with tape flagged down an officer in the median of Pleasant Hill Road just before midnight Thursday.

Ritter says the woman told the officer she'd been robbed at another location and that she'd been driven to where she was found, with the robber leaving in her car.

Ritter says the officer heard yelling from a nearby house while he was talking to the first victim, and found another woman bound with tape.

Ritter says one of the women was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.

Was it duct tape or regular

Was it duct tape or regular gift wrap tape? Which woman was taken to the Gwinett Medical Center and what kind of minor injuries did she have? Did the Associated Press compose this story or did the AC take excerpts from the story?

THERE IS "NO" and I repeat

THERE IS "NO" and I repeat "NO" cause for ALARM, says the LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS! Just another day in paradise! With this kind of mentality, it won't be long before the whole UNITED STATES of AMERICA looks like MEXICO, and I don't mean the Tourist spots. We the PEOPLE will NOT recognize the USA in a few years, thanks to our lovely GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS! The DRUGS and GANGS are here, I don't have a warm fuzzy feeling that it will improve only get MUCH WORSE with this mentality.

Its not just the gov't but

Its not just the gov't but all the bleeding heart citizens that these gov't officials bow to for fear of losing votes, riots for punishing losers appropriately or stopping the subsidy cycle that creates these mosters and stopping illegals. The gov't could do something bout those things but the bleeding hearts wouldnt dare allow it to happen or there would be tragic consequences!!!! Thank a bleeding heart today for ruining our country. I don't see why the rest of America bows down to these ignorant people and let them ruin our country. Sickening and pathetic!!!

What has this story got to do

What has this story got to do with the preceding two posts? There are so many gaps in this story that no conclusion can be drawn from what is printed here.

These women may have had

These women may have had severe gas leaks and the tape meister was just there to help. Tape is a great way to fix leaks. Except for the tape and the missing car, there seems to be no information for the AP to use.
