From Bryan County Sheriff’s Office reports:

 Vandalism: Deputies were sent to a Richmond Hill address on April 11 because a mother said “an arrow was shot through her children’s window.”

The woman said her kids “brought to her attention an arrow in the blanket that was hung as a curtain in their bedroom,” and that they hadn’t been in the room before that for about two hours.

The deputy saw a hole in the bedroom window, which was on the side of the house facing Holly Hill Road, “approximately four inches in diameter,” as well as the arrow, which was stuck in the blanket.

The woman said neither she nor her kids heard anything before the kids found the arrow. She also said hasn’t seen anyone with a bow and arrow in the area.

Matter of record: A deputy was sent to an Ellabell address around 6:20 p.m. April 7 because of an argument between a man and woman over their daughter, apparently, though it wasn’t entirely clear from the report.

The man who called claimed that a wireless phone company was “’Pimping’ his juvenile daughter out with the information they extracted from her home. (He) went off on multiple tangents about his phone and the Chinese trying to kill him and use his phone to spread the Corona Virus,” the report said. “(He) repeatedly asked me to take his phone and have it scanned for the Corona Virus. (He) was under the impression that the virus was being spread through an application on his phone.”

The deputy “returned the juvenile to her mother on scene and asked her to leave,” and then talked to the man “about the multiple foreign agencies attempting to take his life.” The man then went inside, the report said, after the deputy tried to turn the conversation back to the reasons he’d been sent to the house.

Damage to property: A man reported April 11 at a Highway 280 gas station that “he was traveling behind a white truck (unknown make model) and a plastic dog crate fell out of the back. (The complainant) was unable to make an evasive maneuver because of the traffic in the other lane, thus hitting the crate. The collision caused minor damage to the front bumper.” The crate was apparently empty. No injuries were reported.

Theft: An Ellabell man reported April 13 that an ATV he’d been given was stolen. The man said he took it to a nephew’s residence to “have it repaired. (He) advised that he had secured the ATV to a tree with rope and had last seen it on Sunday evening.”

The ATV “was simply described as small with red and black fenders. (The complainant) was unable to describe any possible make or model but gave specifics on how it could be started.”
