From Bryan County Sheriff’s Office reports: 

Matter of record: A deputy on I-95 on Oct. 7 “responded to a call for assistance from Pooler Police Department,” regarding a black Porsche SUV wanted in Virginia “for attempting to conceal a body, with full extradition.”

Pooler officers were behind the SUV at the Belfast Keller interchange and a traffic stop followed. Three people were inside the vehicle, but it was the driver, a 25-year-old man, who was wanted. During the arrest, the man first denied doing anything, then asked if he could be let go, and then “asked if (the deputy) could contact the President for him,” the report said. The man was turned over to Pooler police instead.

Animal complaint: A deputy was sent to an Ellabell address around 10:55 p.m. Oct. 8 “in reference to two dogs not allowing the complainant out of his grandfather’s house.”

The report said the complainant couldn’t get out of the yard because of the neighbor’s dogs. The dogs were “visibly aggressive,” charged the deputy’s patrol car “and bit at the tires and front bumper.”

The deputy called animal control, and they responded as well. The owners of the dogs were warned of what would happen if they didn’t keep their dogs from attacking neighbors.

Suspended license, more: A deputy was sent to a Richmond Hill address around 12:40 p.m. Oct. 5 because “trucks” were blocking the road. There, he spotted a “tractor trailer stopped on the wrong side of the roadway parked,” and the deputy’s tag reader – known as an Automated License Plate Recognition system – said the truck’s registration was suspended and there was no insurance.

The deputy asked the driver for his driver’s license, etc., and was handed a title and told the truck had fleet insurance. “However, he could not provide a copy of the insurance,” the report said, noting the man also said “his driver’s license had fallen through the crack by the seat and he could not reach it.” A check showed the man’s license had been suspended and he also was wanted by both Richmond Hill Police Department and the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office. The man was arrested, his truck was towed. The trailer was left at the scene.

Harassing communications: A Richmond Hill woman went to BCSO on Oct. 6 to report “her landlord … keeps coming to her residence and calling her vulgar names. She stated (the landlord) calls her phone and will not stop calling her.” A deputy spoke with the 83-year-old landlord, asking her not to contact the tenant.

The landlord said she had already started the eviction process.
