Nov. 25—Deputies stopped a Pembroke man on Strickland Street in Pembroke around 9 p.m. after he weaved in and out of his lane of traffic several times. After approaching the vehicle, the deputy noted a strong smell of marijuana, and that the driver had glassy eyes and slurred speech. While performing field sobriety tests, the man threw a “smoking device” on the ground, and the deputy noted it also smelled of marijuana. The man was taken to the county jail.

Nov. 21—Deputies responded to Polk Road in Ellabell around 4:30 p.m. after a man reported a 12-gauge shotgun missing from his property. The man said someone took the lock off his shed, took the gun from his workbench and replaced the lock.

Nov. 19—Deputies responded to Sims Road in Pembroke after a woman reported suspicious phone calls on her cell phone from Glendale, Ca., and Los Angeles. She received the calls after she closed her bank account due to suspicious activity in which more than $600 had been spent by someone other than her. She described the caller as an Asian male who had her social security number and stated a law suit has been made against her.

Possession of narcotics
Nov. 25—Deputies responded to Dashers Landing Road in Ellabell in reference to a suspicious woman dressed in all black knocking on doors.
