52-year-old Georgette Gates was involved in a domestic disturbance with her ex-boyfriend, Thomas Earl Gilleylen, at Bell Trace Dr. on November 8. Gilleylen spoke with officers as they arrived and advised them that he was moving out and trying to retrieve some of his belongings, especially his drums, which he provided a receipt for. Gates told officers that Gilleylen did not have a drum set in the garage and refused to let them check the garage to confirm. Gilleylen provided text messages from Gates stating, “I got your base guitar too all of it is as good as gone that’s what you get for thinking you was going to fuck over me.” Gates provided camera footage showing Gilleylen grabbing some bags but none that a drum set could fit inside of. Officers determined that Gates was depriving Gilleylen of his drum set, so they placed her into custody for theft of property.
