Theft of Services: Nov. 24 — Deputies responded to Black Creek Church Road in Ellabell around 11 a.m. after a woman reported an electrical meter missing from her father’s home. He no longer lives there but keeps the power on and the monthly bill is around $40. This month it was $123. When she went to the home, she found the box was missing and thought a neighbor had taken it. A Canoochee EMC representative came out to look and found the box had been removed and placed on a nearby home. The representative told deputies Canoochee would press charges.

Nov. 17 — Deputies responded to Quail Road in Richmond Hill around 9 p.m. after a woman reported several items missing from her vehicle, which she thought she had locked. A digital camera and GPS system was missing from the car.

Nov. 24 — Deputies responded to Highway 204 in Ellabell just before 8 a.m. after a man reported his tractor trailer truck had been broken into. He said he left his truck at the Zip-N gas station overnight and someone had busted a window and gone through the truck, though nothing was missing. Surveillance video from the gas station showed a white male wearing tennis shoes, blue jeans and a dark shirt around the vehicle during the night.
