From Bryan County Sheriff’s Office reports: 

Suspicious incident; A deputy was sent to a South Bryan neighborhood around 11;30 p.m. March 20 because of a man in a hoodie and mask “walking through the yards.” The deputy found the man, who “stated he was knocking on trailer doors trying to get a ride (to an apartment complex) because he was too cold to walk,” a report said, noting the man’s cell phone was dead “so he was asking to borrow resident’s phone to call his mom.”

The deputy checked to make sure residences hadn’t been broken into and then gave the man a ride to his apartment “and ensured a family member was home to let him in.”

Alarm call: A deputy reported a false alarm at an Ellabell address at some point before 5:41 a.m. on an unspecified date. The homeowner’s sister had caused it, tripping the alarm. “I made sure everything was okay and then left the scene after helping her round up her loose dogs,” the deputy added.

DUI, open container: A deputy on patrol on Highway 17 around 11 p.m. March 17 got behind a car “failing to maintain it’s lane …” and conducted a traffic stop near I-95. The deputy smelled a “strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from within (the vehicle)” and the driver, a 28-year-old man, was halfway undressed and clearly intoxicated, the report said. The man blew a .314 on a portable breath test. He told the deputy he had four drinks “and it’s Saint Patrick’s Day.”

He was taken to jail. The vehicle as towed.
