Son's behavior scares parents into calling police

Bryan County Sheriff's blotter

POSTED: May 19, 2017 6:00 a.m.

From Bryan County Sheriff’s Department reports:

Obscene communication: A deputy was called to an Ellabell address Monday where he was told "an unknown person had contacted (complainant’s) 11-year-old daughter’s phone via Facetime, a live video sharing service, and immediately began masturbating over the camera feed."

The phone and the account are under the girl’s name, the man said, and is used for school. The man said his daughter is not allowed to have social media accounts and "surrenders her phone" at night. The messages and request came from a New York number. The man said his daughter had no clue who the person was and neither did he, but he was worried about her safety.

Lost property: A deputy reported he lost his portable radio from his patrol car. The deputy said he noticed it missing Sunday while working "an off-duty security function." The deputy searched for the radio at his home, and called to check with the sheriffs’ offices in both Bulloch and Evans counties near where he believed the radio was lost.

Theft: A Singleton Road woman reported Monday her ex-boyfriend stole her lawnmower.

The woman told a deputy "she had terminated the relationship between herself and (her boyfriend) on (Sunday). (She) advised that she observed (her boyfriend) walking down the road with her push lawnmower on (Monday). She yelled at him to return the mower by the end of the day. (He) did not return the mower as requested. (She) advised (him) that she would be calling the police if he didn’t return the mower. (She) contacted (his) brother so he could tell (him) to return the mower."

The deputy spoke with the ex-boyfriend and his brother. The ex said he "didn’t take the lawnmower and he isn’t sure if she had one anyhow. (He) advised that he had no intentions of going back to her house for anything anymore."

The man’s brother said he didn’t have the lawnmower and, "also advised that (the woman) and (his brother) have done things like this before when splitting up so he tries to stay away from that situation."

Matter of record: Deputies were sent to a Richmond Hill address Tuesday regarding property damage. There, they talked with a man and woman who said their 20-year-old son "suffered a psychotic episode today after his mother … took him job hunting," a report said.

The woman told the deputy she brought her son home because he was "angry about being forced to look for a job," and then went to the library. When she got home, she found his bedroom furniture was destroyed and her son gone.

The parents said their son has "severe paranoia due to various mental health issues and drug addiction," and showed the deputy "a homemade club with blades attached that (he) made." They were told to call the sheriff’s department if the kid returned.

No insurance: This from a May 12 report in which a deputy on patrol spotted a car near the South Bryan Admistration Building "that repeatedly and randomly kept slowing, stopping and accelerating on the roadway for no apparent reason."

The deputy ran the tag number and discovered it was registered to a Pooler man and there was no insurance on the vehicle.

After pulling the driver over, the deputy asked why the man was slowing down and speeding up and was told "that (the driver) was looking for free WI-FI."

The man’s car was towed. The man was taken to Love’s Truck Stop to wait a ride back to Pooler.

Matter of record: A Richmond Hill man reported May 13 that his wife got drunk and then flew to Hawaii. The man said his wife went to a friend’s house in Liberty County the day before with their two children and started drinking, "and the friends would not allow her to leave said residence driving because she had been consuming alcoholic beverages. (He) stated his wife planned to stay the night with the children at the (friend’s house)."

Instead, "(the man) stated his wife called an Uber driver to pick her up from the (friend’s house) sometime during the night. (He) stated his wife had the Uber driver take her to the airport in Savannah, Ga. He stated his wife flew to Hawaii without letting him or anyone else know she was leaving the (friend’s house)."

The man said he went to pick up his kids and "indicated his wife showed no signs of mental or physical distress on the date in question. He also stated she made no types of threats to harm herself or anyone else."

The man wanted a report filed for documentation. He got a case number.
