After stopping and approaching the vehicle, the deputy detected a strong odor of alcohol, and witnessed several opened bottles of alcohol in the vehicle.

May 24 – A Richmond Hill woman reported her computer was stolen after she took the computer to a man at the WalMart on Hwy. 17, and he was supposed to get it fixed.

June 6 – Police responded to a burglary near Homestead Drive in Ellabell after a woman reported a burglary at her home. She said someone pried open her back door, came inside and stole several 12-ounce cans of Coke and a plate of around a dozen brownies, and then let themselves out through her front door. She also said she’d found child-sized tracks on her carpet, though she’d already vacuumed when deputies arrived.

Disorderly conduct
