From Bryan County Sheriff’s Office reports:

Medical transport: Deputies were sent around 8:20 p.m. Feb. 1 to “the area of Eldora Road and Highway 80” regarding a man walking around in his underwear.

They found him in his underwear and a “small blanket despite the temperature approaching the 30s,” the report said, adding “(he) seemed confused although he knew where he was,” and told deputies “he was schizophrenic and had not taken his medication in two months and was having a problem distinguishing reality from hallucinations.”
The man said he didn’t know how he lost his clothing “or if he accidentally entered a house he wasn’t welcome,” and “was certain his mom’s  house was close but was unable to provide a numerical (address).”

He asked to go to the hospital and was taken by EMS.

 Agency assist: A deputy helped out a busy Richmond Hill Police Department around 12:30 p.m. Jan. 30 “reference three hypodermic needles in the front parking lot flower bed” of a local business. “All PD units were busy on other calls and (a deputy) advised he would ride over and remove the needles and properly dispose of them.” He did.

Matter of record: A man reported Jan. 30 his “forest clearing machine” was damaged when he took it to a company in South Carolina for maintenance. “(He) said when he received his forest clearing machine back … he started noticing links all over the machine, damage to the undercarriage, cracks/scratches on the front windshield, and various areas of the machine that had not been cleaned. He also made mention that a bolt was put across the back end filter area that wasn’t there before and that he was having difficulty removing.”

He wanted the report for documentation purposes.
