From Bryan County Sheriff's Office reports:

Theft: An Ellabell man reported April 22 that someone broke into his gun shop and stole a number of weapons.

Among the firearms reported stolen were a Radical Firearms RF 15 5.56 semi-automatic rifle; an American Tactical Omni Hybrid .410 shotgun; a Heritage .22 caliber pistol; a Hi Point 10mm semi automatic rifle; a Savage Axis XP 308 bolt action rifle; a Savage 110 bolt action rifle; a Ruger Redhawk .44 magnum revolver; a Ruger GP 100 357 revolver; a Taurus .38 special revolver; a Taurus .40 caliber semiautomatic pistol; a Charter Arms .22 revolver; a FIE Titan 25 pistol; and a Smith and Wesson Model 10 pistol.

Some ammo was also reported missing. The case is under investigation.

Criminal damage: A Richmond Hill man reported April 21 that his “ex girlfriend stole and damaged his property.”

The man told deputies they had an argument the day before, and he left the house and stayed in a local motel. “(He) stated he returned home and observed several items missing from the living room ….”

Those items included a window unit air conditioner still in the box, the living room TV, a drill, a gun and “his meat items he purchased on April 17, 2020,” the report continued.

And there’s more.

“(The man) stated he proceeded to the bedroom to find his brand new bedroom suit mattress destroyed. (He) stated the protective plastic cover was pulled back and cooking grease was poured all over the mattress. (He) stated he was currently making monthly payments for the bedroom suit.”

The man said his ex also “damaged his door knob and had thrown his personal documents along Daniel Siding Loop Road,” the report said.

Damage to property: A deputy was sent to a Pembroke address April 21 “in reference to several dead chickens.” There, he met with the complainant, who said the neighbor’s dogs “came into her yard and killed the chickens.”

“She was in the process of cleaning up the area when deputies arrived and deputies were only able to see a few of the chickens that were dead.

(The woman) also showed deputies a picture that she had taken on her phone.

The picture was of one of the dogs with a chicken in its mouth running down the road.”

The woman said the value of the lost chickens was around $500. A neighbor told deputies the woman had already spoken to them and they were going to try to reach an agreement on reimbursing her.

Found contraband: A deputy was at a Parker’s on Highway 80 shortly before 6 a.m. April 24 when he was approached by a clerk. “She handed me a bag that contained multiple plastic bags, one of which contained a clear crystal substance approximately 1-2 grams. There was a scale located inside the bag. The clerk handed me a Barbasol shave cream can with a false bottom. Inside the can were three bags of leafy green substance, in total approximately 6-8 grams, what appeared to be a marijuana cigarette and rolling papers.”

The stuff was taken to the evidence locker, the report said.

Theft: A deputy was sent to a Pembroke address April 22, where he was told “sometime during the past year person(s) unknown had taken from the property, 6 each solar panels, along with battery packs totaling $1,000 in value.”

The complainant also said someone tampered with the well pump. He wanted a report and extra patrols.
