On Oct. 19, police were called to the Hamilton Mill home after a male resident walked into the garage and saw a man standing next to his wife's vehicle holding his wife's purse. The wife had arrived home only moments earlier and had left the garage door open because her husband was about to leave. The woman's purse, according to the report, had been left on the front passenger seat of the vehicle.
The husband, who was holding the couple's infant child at the time, told the man to drop the purse. The man, later identified as Bready, turned and walked to a blue passenger car parked in the driveway. Bready then backed out onto Hamilton Mill Parkway and headed toward Braselton Highway. The husband noticed a female in the passenger seat and said the woman began crying as he approached the vehicle. The husband was able to obtain the tag number of the vehicle and provided it to authorities.
A short time later, a Dacula man arrived at the home with the wife's purse. The Dacula man said he spotted the purse lying partially in the roadway near Duncan Corner on Spout Springs Road. Thinking it looked suspicious, he stopped to investigate and found the woman's driver's license inside the purse. He then drove to the Hamilton Mill home to return the purse.
The wife said the only items missing were $350 in cash and a Coco Chanel perfume bottle.
The husband provided police with a description of the suspect and the suspect's vehicle. As of article publication time, no further details regarding Bready's arrest are available. Bready remains in the Gwinnett County Jail, bond has been set at $11,400.
