The following information was taken from reports by the Bryan County Sheriff’s Office.

March 12

Neighbor dispute — The BCSO responded to a report of a fight at a Highway 119 residence in Pembroke.

A male at the scene said a drunk male was arguing with his girlfriend on his garden. When the first male told them to leave because they were damaging his tomatoes, the second male pushed him to the ground. The first male’s son then punched the second male.

The father and son said they wouldn’t pursue charges as long as the second male left them alone.

The second male and the girlfriend told a deputy that they had already left the property when the father called him back and attacked him. The deputy told them the father and son considered the matter over. The boyfriend and girlfriend seemed agreeable to that and said “they would call it a night.”

However, less than an hour later, the deputy was sent back to the residence, where the father and son said that the girlfriend had been using social media to escalate the situation. They also said another male called them and said he was going to come over and fight them the next day.

The father and son said they wanted the latest information reported in case they had to pursue charges or defend themselves. They were given a case number and told how to get a copy of the report.


Criminal trespass — A BCSO deputy went to the area of Highway 204 and Pine Barren Loop for a report of a complainant’s car window being broken.

The complainant told the deputy that an unknown person broke out the passenger-side window of her 2003 Buick Century while she was getting a spare tire. She said nothing was missing from the vehicle.

Damage to property — A complainant told a BCSO deputy that a silver-in-color truck collided with the side of the Zip-In No. 3 on Highway 204 in Ellabell.

The complainant said the truck didn’t stop in its parking space and caused moderate damage to the building’s side. The driver then got out of the truck, looked at the damage and left the scene without giving any information.

Matter of record — A complainant on Dr. Blitch Road in Ellabell spoke to a BCSO deputy about a loaned gun of his that had not been returned.

About six months ago, the complainant said, he loaned out his 30-06 Remington semi-automatic rifle to a male, whom he said will not return the firearm. The complainant said the alleged offender refuses to make contact with him or goes the other way when they see each other.

The complainant did not know if the alleged offender still has the rifle, but hear that he may have sold it.

The deputy told the complainant that this is a civil matter because he had loaned out the rifle on his own. However, a report would be made so that he could see if a magistrate judge could give him a warrant on the alleged offender or seek restitution in a civil court.
