From Bryan County Sheriff’s Office reports: 

Theft: An Ellabell man reported April 7 his son’s four wheeler was stolen after he moved it because of the tornado. The man said a tree fell near the four wheeler as a result of the storm, so he moved it and put a tarp on it. He found muddy tracks and said his wife thought she saw lights the previous night. He got a case number, etc. 

Theft: A Pembroke man reported April 7 his utility trailer was missing from his property. The man said he was cleaning up after the storm when he noticed the trailer was gone. Also missing was a blue barrel. He got a case number. 

Theft: A Pembroke man reported April 9 a shed at his mother’s property was broken into, and a remote controlled airplane was taken. The man said he’d last checked the shed and house on April 7 and everything was secure. He got a case number, etc. 

Aggravated assault: A woman reported April 8 that on April 6 she was at the Zip N in Ellabell she got into a fight with another woman, and the other woman pulled a gun “and said if her kids were not there she would shoot her.” 

The complainant didn’t want to prosecute “but wanted a report in case (the woman) tried to shoot her.” 

Harassment: A Richmond Hill man reported April 6 his wife, whom he is divorcing, was harassing him by planting fake house keys with his name and work cell phone number on a yellow key ID tag at various locations around Richmond Hill and Savannah, and he’d gotten about 20 calls in the past 24 hours from people saying they’d found his house keys.  

While the man was talking to the deputy he got two more calls from the Kroger Customer Service Desk to tell them they had his house keys. 

The man said his wife lives in Brunswick but comes up to Savannah once a month for a doctor’s appointment and stays at a Richmond Hill address during that time. He wanted to know if her actions violated the restraining order he has against her and was told to contact his lawyer. 

Illegal dumping: Deputies were sent to a Richmond Hill address around 11:42 a.m. April 9 because a man reported someone had dumped a large amount of trash – mattresses, clothes, household items, etc. – on property near his home.  

He found mail in the garbage with a Buckhead North address, and when deputies called the owner of the garbage said they’d hired a crew to clean out their garage. She gave deputies the name and number of the person who was in charge of the crew, but attempts to reach him were unsuccessful. The woman was given two days to clean up the mess and she said she would get it done, the report said.
