From Bryan County Sheriff’s Office reports:

 Stalking: A Richmond Hill man reported Aug. 22 his daughter was getting “graphic” texts, the contents of which were “suggesting stalking by watching her from the window.” 

The man gave authorities phone numbers where the texts came from.

 Matter of record: Deputies on Aug. 23 around 8:30 a.m. were sent to Highway 80 at Jarrell Road “in reference to a trailer coming unattached from a truck and turned over in the roadway. While en route dispatch advised the driver of the truck had already left the scene.” When deputies got there the “dump trailer” was blocking traffic on 80 east, and a witness told them the driver “left the scene in a burgundy extended cab Ford F-150,” possibly made between 2012-2014.

A tow truck took care of the trailer, but it didn’t have a license plate and there was no VIN number, either.

Matter of record: Deputies were sent to the Dip N Dash in Ellabell on Aug. 21 because a man was panhandling and scaring customers. Deputies found the man near Highway 80 and learned he was wanted in Ohio and Bryan County on various charges. He was also said to have violent “tendencies.” The man was arrested to be sent back to Ohio.

Matter of record: A deputy was sent to a Parker’s convenience store in Richmond Hill on Aug. 16 regarding a woman “harassing customers in the parking lot.” The 26-year-old woman, who gave deputies a Ludowici address, “was in an altered mental state from unknown substances,” and was wanted in Bryan County. She was taken to jail.

Suspicious person: A Cartertown Road man reported “an unknown female” walked into his garage around 12:47 a.m. Aug. 21 and acted weird.

The complainant said the unknown female identified herself in part as Brittany and began to look through belongings while “acting like she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.” The complainant and his fiancé said they were in the garage with some friends when the woman showed up and when asked to leave became belligerent. The complainant said the woman went through his tools looking for a screw driver.

The woman was escorted off the property before a deputy arrived, and a search came up empty. Nobody was hurt and nothing seemed to be missing.

Illegal dumping: A deputy was sent to a North Bryan property Aug. 20 regarding dumped trash. The deputy found something with a name and address on it and found the person, who denied dumping the garbage. Het was told he would have to clean it up or be cited, and the man cleaned it up under the watchful eye of the deputy. The report said there were earlier complaints about the man dumping trash on the property, but deputies had been unable to get hold of the man.

Entering automobile: A woman reported Aug. 21 her vehicle broke down on I-95 near mile marker 85 northbound. She said she parked on the side of the road about 9 a.m. and “an unknown truck driver helped her change her tire and dropped her off at the nearest exit,” a report said. “At about (11 a.m.) she returned and discovered the vehicle’s window had been busted out, her wallet was missing, and the batter cable had been cut.” She got a case number, etc.
