A few police reports chronicling alleged criminal incidents in Cartersville and Bartow County in the last day or so caught our eyes at Cartersville Patch. Here are the stories:

Allegedly Drunk Woman Says She's the FBI

A Cartersville woman who allegedly said she was the Federal Bureau of Investigation before asking a local motel clerk to call 911 found herself the subject of a complaint to police.

Angela Marie Bates, 44, a Guest House resident, entered the office Thursday shortly after noon to ask for her mail, but grabbed paperwork and threw it in the clerk's face and screamed across the counter, calling the clerk a name, according to the Bartow County Sheriff's Office incident report, attached.

Deputies reported smelling alcohol on Bates, who said she had been cursed at, too. "I did not drink alcohol, but I have been drinking non-scented mouth wash," she told police, according to the report.

Bates was jailed on a disorderly conduct charge.

Open Window Sends Suspected Roach-Smoking Couple To Jail

A couple at another local motel went to jail Wednesday after police of foot patrol spotted them through an open window allegedly smoking marijuana.

Devonta Marquayle White, 20, and Daniela Doerr, 24, Parkway North residents, were in their room, which had a cracked window and open blinds, lying on the bed, according to the Cartersville Police Department incident report attached.

An officer reports he smelled burning marijuana walking past the room and saw the pair smoking what appeared to be a "roach." It was smoldering on the floor after police knocked on the door.

"As soon as Mr. White answered the door, the odor of burnt marijuana became extremely strong, and smoke poured out of the doorway," the officer wrote. "I put the marijuana cigarette out, and asked if there was any more.

"Ms. Doerr stated that there was a small baggie of marijuana underneath the bed, and that her kitten was playing with it."

White and Doerr were issued citations for possession of less than 1 ounce of marijuana.
