BCSO blotter: Man allegedly gets high, changes address, paints tree
Bryan County Sheriff's Office logo

From Bryan County Sheriff’s Office reports;

Matter of record: Deputies were called to an Ellabell address around 5:15 p.m. Sept. 23 regarding a man who damaged the complainant’s property “by changing the address on the window of the home, and also spray painting the tree in the front yard,” a report said. The complainant said it’s not the first time the man has done this, and that he often does things he isn’t aware of when he gets high. He also said the man “attempted to throw a rock in his direction but was unsuccessful while doing so.”

The man was found at a nearby Dollar General and told the deputy he didn’t do it.

Disorderly conduct: Deputies were sent to break up a domestic at an Ellabell address around 4:38 p.m. Sept. 21 when things got ugly, a report said.

After a man and woman involved in a domestic declined to press charges, a large crowd “remained in the area and refused to leave,” and “there were different groups of crowds yelling back and forth at each other. Deputies attempted to deescalate the crowd and get people to leave the area, however, deescalation attempts were not working.”

At least three deputies were at the scene, and more were called, but the report said things got to the point one woman told them “she was going to kill (the reporting deputy) and every Bryan County cop and that she would blow everything up,” and “due to the large crowd turning against us for trying to help them (the deputy) determined it would be best and safest outcome for deputies and all other parties involved for deputies to leave.”

An arrest warrant was going to be filed against the woman who threatened to kill the deputy, however.

Verbal dispute: Deputies were sent to an Ellabell address Sept. 24 “in reference to air being let out of tires.”

There, they met with a man and woman. The man said he let the air out of the woman’s tires “because he wanted his child, and she planned on going out drinking that night. (She) stated that she did have plans to go out with friends off of Goshen Road in Effingham County. She stated that she was going to pick up their child from school, and then she would drop the child off at (the man’s) mother’s house. (A deputy) remained on scene to ensure the peace was kept while (the man) put the air back in (the woman’s) vehicle’s tires.”

Matter of record: A Richmond Hill man reported Sept. 28 his neighbor spotted a pack of dogs leaving his yard, and when he came home “he found his chicken coop destroyed and 12 of his chickens dead.” He was given a case number.
