From Bryan County Sheriff ’s Office reports: 

Aggravated assault: Deputies were sent to an Ellabell address around 9:15 p.m. July 23 “in reference to an EMS call for a gunshot victim.”

There, they found a man bleeding from “a puncture in his right upper arm … (but) was unsure if he was shot or if his wound was from glass breakage.” When asked what happened the man said he was on Dean Forest Road “and things went bad.”

After some discussion, it was learned the shooting took place in Pooler and was the result of a drug deal gone bad. The man’s brother, who was in the car with him, was unhurt, but a third person with them was too slow and left behind. He was found wounded in Garden City, the report said.

Pooler police are investigating.

Matter of record: An Ellabell woman reported July 26 she was having issues with people who live in the neighborhood. The woman said her husband is president of the HOA and posted on a neighborhood Facebook page that the pool was closed to vandalism. “(She) said there were several unnecessary comments attached to the post so she turned the comments off.” The woman said there was also an exchange on Facebook between her husband and a man where they could meet at the pool to discuss the issue. The woman said video showed the man her husband exchanged posts with getting out of a truck and walking to her front door then being pulled away by his wife, and they both leave.

Suspicious activity: A Richmond Hill man reported July 26 two teens came to his house around 6:45 p.m. “and tried to solicit money for a fund raising event. He said they had no fliers or raffle tickets but attempted to convince him it was for the high school. They never stated how much it was to enter the raffle or gave him any real information on it.”

The man said after he questioned them they left “without getting any money,” and he then called a coach at the school who said there were no fund raisers going on at the moment.

Damage to property: A Pembroke woman reported July 20 her ex boyfriend the day before “had removed her furniture out of his father’s storage building … and took it across the road and left it in the road to get rained on and destroyed.” The woman said he did this while she was at work and had no time to make arrangements to pick it up.

The deputy was shown a photo taken by the boyfriend and sent to his ex girlfriend. He tried to get hold of the boyfriend but was unsuccessful, and he also didn’t find the furniture, the report said. The complainant was told how to press charges.
