From Bryan County Sheriff ’s Office reports.

Theft: Good gracious. Someone stole an outhouse.

The owner of a Pembroke-based outhouse company called BCSO on Monday in “reference to an Orange Porta Pottie #160 model 5 Peak taken from a laydown yard/construction material site located on Belfast Keller in Richmond Hill.”

The owner said he noticed the outhouse missing around 10 a.m. Nov. 13. It is valued at $1,500. No word on whether it was full or not at the time it was taken.

Matter of record: Deputies were sent Nov. 12 to a North Bryan business regarding a complainant who said a woman “was chasing her and harassing her while she was at work.”

The reason? “(Complainant) said she was having an affair with (the woman’s) husband and that is why she was harassing her at work.”

A deputy then talked to the woman, who said “she witnessed (the complainant) snorting something while she was in her car at the red light,” so the woman followed her a while and then “she blocked (the complainant) and had been calling the sheriff ’s office.”

The manager of the store said they didn’t want the woman back on the property. What’s more, “due to the fact (the woman) had a suspended driver’s license (deputies) had her call family members to come and get her and her vehicle.”

Fraudulent currency: A man who runs a fruit stand on Highway 80 reported Nov. 15 a man “drove up to his fruit stand and purchased $10 worth of cucumbers and paid with a $100. (Complainant said) he didn’t realize the bill was not real until after the suspect had left the area. (His) loss in this incident is $90 of legitimate U.S. currency when he made change for the transaction.”

The $100 was marked “movie use only,” the report said. The complainant described the man who gave it to him as white, 50-60 with no facial hair driving a small white car. He didn’t get a license number. What a jerk.

Mental issues: A deputy was sent to I-95 at mile marker 82 on Nov. 15 after a call from CHAMPS roadside assistance regarding a man in a disabled vehicle who seemed confused.

Deputies found the man didn’t know where he was or where he was going, and called EMS to come check him out. They then asked him if there was anyone they could call, and he told them his mother, and called her on the phone – and she told the deputy to call his father, so the deputy called his father.

“(He) stated his son is schizophrenic and is probably off his medication. (He) stated he was in Boston, MA and his son needed to go the hospital and he would fly to Savannah (to get him.”

The man was taken to St. Joseph’s and his car was towed, the report said.
