Sept. 26 – An Ellabell resident said his home, currently under construction, was robbed of several items. An employee notified the complainant on Sept. 23, and the man said he thought maybe the home had been broken into a few days earlier.

The reporting deputy said the home appeared to be entered from the back door because there was evidence of "pushing or kicking," which damaged the door, the report said.

Household goods including a Whirlpool above-the-stove microwave, ceiling fans and a dining room ceiling light were among missing items. The report noted with the recent rains, there was no evidence of tracks in the dirt behind the home. Information was turned over to an investigator.



Sept. 23 – A woman and her son became engaged in a verbal altercation, and her son took off running when police arrived. The woman said her son had threatened to harm her, pointed a gun at her, and said he would harm police if they tried to stop him.

The 18-year-old disappeared into the woods behind the residence when police showed up; it didn’t take long to find him running along the wood line but the offender refused to stop on foot.

The tracking K-9 officer arrived to help, and soon after, the deputies were told the offender had returned home. He was placed under arrest for obstruction, and said he had started running because he was scared.


Traffic stop

Sept. 27 – A blue Volvo 740GL was pulled over due to a lack of a license plate.

The driver said his license had been taken from him earlier this month, by State Patrol, after he was arrested for a DUI.

The man did have his citations from that offense with him, and showed the deputy the bill of sale for the vehicle. A dispatch run on the man’s name came back with several license suspensions; the man was arrested for driving with a suspended license and taken to jail.


Damage to vehicle

Sept. 23 – A woman said that sometime between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., someone went onto her Ellabell property and keyed her vehicle.

The report noted there was a large "X" keyed into the hood of the 2005 Elantra. According to the report, the woman requested extra patrol in the area on Saturday nights; the deputy said she should call the department and the police would be glad to do that.


Stolen property

Sept. 25 – A man reported a utility trailer stolen after a man who was helping do some roofing work had not returned it. The helper had taken the trailer, which was full of trash, on Sept. 5.

He told the complainant he would return it after the trash was disposed of, by Sept. 8. The complainant said he had spoken with the man twice since then, and the man had gotten verbally abusive with him. After Sept. 15, the man’s phone was disconnected. The complainant said the trailer was brand new on Aug. 13, and had not yet even been registered; the trailer still does not have identification tags. The report noted the complainant thinks the alleged offender lives in Nassau Woods in Savannah, and was last seen driving a 2004 green Chevy Truck or 1992 grey Ford truck with a ladder rack.


Theft by taking

Sept. 25 – A Pembroke resident said her son took her car keys and entered her car, stealing $150 in cash, 12 pain pills, and her debit card. The woman was told how to get a warrant.
