Real Housewives of Atlanta husband Apollo Nida plead guilty to conspiracy to commit bank fraud and wire transfer yesterday, according to a report from our media affiliate CBS46. Nida, who is married to RHOA cast member Phaedra Parks, created several fake collection companies in order to gain access to the personal information and credit history databases operated by companies like Equifax and Lexis-Nexis. According to the U.S. Attorney’s office, Nida’s scheme took place over four years and affected more than 50 victims. He will be sentenced in July.

The city has launched ATLCourt, a new website that will allow residents to look up their court case, get text reminders and find answers to frequently asked questions about municipal court operations. The website is one of several applications being developed as part of the yearlong Code for America Fellowship. You can check it out at http://court.atlantaga.gov.

Atlanta Police are looking for a man who burglarized an Ormewood Park home on May 2. The incident occurred on Woodland Avenue when the resident woke up and discovered that someone had broken into her home and stolen items and her vehicle. A short time after the burglary, a male attempted to use the victim’s credit card inside Kroger at 1160 Moreland Ave. He was captured in the surveillance image shown at right. If you have information, call Crime Stoppers at (404) 577-TIPS (8477) or at crimestoppersatlanta.org. There could be a reward of up to $2,000.
