A look at top Patch stories from around Georgia.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Coming to Metro Area — Tucker Patch
Residents of a neighborhood off Brockett Road in Tucker are in for a bit of an upheaval later this month. A production company is moving in for a couple of days to shoot scenes for a movie and coming with them is ... Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The movie in question is called "Breacher" and tells the sordid tale of a group of rogue DEA agents who get their comeuppance in gruesome ways. The title refers to the main character's name, played by the governator himself.
Candy Lane is Sweet Spot for Burglar — Lilburn Patch
It seems that a group of burglars may have hit up at least two homes on the same day on the same street — Candy Lane in Lilburn.
On Oct. 3, one of the victims contacted police after arriving home about 4:15 p.m.
When police arrived, they found disheveled bedrooms with open drawers, mattresses pushed off beds and covers removed. But, several pieces of electronics were still there, including a laptop on the floor, the report stated.
It was later discovered that a Bulova watch and a diamond necklace had been taken, according to the report.
Nearby, in the same block, a resident flagged down police as they were leaving the first home. His home also had been apparently burglarized. A flat screen television, $220 in cash, a Samsung tablet, a cell phone and a mini megaphone were determined to be missing.
