From Bryan County Sheriff’s Office reports:

 Matter of record: Deputies were sent to Bryan County Fire and Emergency Services Station No. 1 around 5:15 p.m. July 29 regarding a “’potentially dangerous’ psych patient in the back parking lot of the fire station.” There, a deputy saw a silver SUV “backed up to the fire station bay with several fire and EMS personnel standing around the back of the SUV,” with a woman in the center.

The deputy asked the woman, who had a Brunswick address, to identify herself and she “stated she was a telepath and was told she had a subject in the trunk of her vehicle,” so she left a storage unit on Veterans Memorial Parkway “and drove straight to the fire station for help.”

Firefighters said the woman rolled “into the lot driving crazy and backed into the open bay up to the ambulance parked inside, approximately 1 inch away but not striking the vehicle.”

The woman said first responders checked her trunk and came up empty, “she felt stupid and just wanted to leave.” She also told deputies “to contact the CIA and a subject at the pentagon to verify her claims of being a telepath.”

The woman was asked about her mental health and said she didn’t want to harm herself or anybody else. She “stated she was leaving the area and was going to follow up with this incident with the Air National Guard in Chatham and the Pentagon.”

She “left without incident,” the report said.

Matter of record: A deputy was sent to an Ellabell address July 27 “in reference to assisting a Georgia Power investigator with a theft of services complaint.” According to that investigator, residents at the address “had been stealing power from the power pole by using a pair of jumper cables to affix it to the power line.”

There, they met some folks staying in a camper, but the folks allegedly stealing power with jumper cables weren’t at the home. The Georgia Power investigator wanted a report for his files.

Disorderly conduct, shoplifting: A was deputy was sent July 31 to “a fight in progress at the Dollar General.”

There, he met a store employee who said “while checking a person out at the register, a guest she identified … started threatening her with a bottle of bleach. (Complainant) stated that she knew (the suspect) because she lives across the street from her. (Complainant) advised (suspect) threatened to spray her in the face with bleach.”

So, the complainant “went to the back room to call the police,” and while she “was in the back room, (suspect) went to the register, set the bleach spray down, took the bags of items that (complainant) was ringing up at the register and walked out the store.

Video confirmed the complainant’s account, so the deputy went to the suspect’s home. She told the deputy “she was standing in line with the bleach spray and said nothing to (the complainant),” and that “she didn’t want the bleach spray and just set it down on the counter. (She) also reported that someone in the line said they wanted the bleach spray. (She) said shew walked out of the store with the items because the person at the register was her uncle, who was on a bike.”

She was arrested for shoplifting and disorderly conduct.
