The following are from Richmond Hill Police reports:
Theft by taking
May 17 – Officers responded to the T/A Truck Stop, where a Savannah man said his brown 1977 Chevy C10 pick-up truck had been stolen around 2 p.m. The man was dropping off the pick-up so he could pick up his tractor trailer for a trip to Florida. The man told officers he had done this several times in the past without incident, and claimed to have the only key in his possession and that the truck had been locked.
Matter of record
May 31 – A Laurel Hill Circle resident reported to police that three of the tires on her 2008 Hyundai Tiburon had been punctured sometime during the night before. Officer Robert Linton observed what appeared to be puncture marks in the tires but found no witnesses to the incident.
June 6 – A Quacco Road resident was arrested for DUI after officers clocked her driving 58 mph in a 45 mph zone and watched her repeatedly fail to maintain the traffic lane. When officers stopped the vehicle, they noted the heavy odor of alcohol and saw in plain view a six-pack of beer with two cans missing. The woman at first objected to a field sobriety test but later agreed to one. She was arrested after failing the tests and also testing positive for alcohol.
June 6 – A Clarktown Road resident was arrested for DUI after officers found the man behind the wheel of his 2004 Ford F-150 in a ditch on Harris Trail Road. Cpl. Richard Olesky Jr. spoke with the man while he was still in the vehicle and noticed the smell of alcohol, as well as bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, on the man. The man admitted to being the driver and having had “a lot” to drink. Both the driver and the passenger told officers they were OK and did not need emergency medical services. The driver tested positive for alcohol before being taken to Bryan County Jail.
June 6 – A Richard Davis Drive resident was arrested after reportedly driving erratically on Hwy 405 with an open beer bottle and then urinating in public.
