The following information was taken from reports from the Bryan County Sheriff’s Office and the Richmond Hill Police Department:
Waitress serving more than food — The Richmond Hill Police Department received an anonymous phone call April 17 claiming that a waitress at the Waffle House, 56 Sommers Blvd., was selling narcotics from her vehicle.
Police report that marijuana and alprazolam, also known as Xanax, were found in the woman’s vehicle after a K-9 search. The woman’s phone was confiscated and police found several messages on it about the acquisition and sale of narcotics.
The woman was arrested and taken to the Bryan County Jail, the report stated.
Home inspection scam — A man told Richmond Hill police he believes he was the target of a possible scam involving a pending home purchase. The man told officers that he was contacted April 13 to perform a home inspection on Dogwood Avenue and the suspected buyer put him in touch with a person claiming to be a real estate agent. The supposed real estate agent required a deposit of $4,000 before the inspector could enter the home, police said. The buyer asked the complainant to provide the money, claiming he was out of town on business. The man told police he declined the request.
Burned down shed not fit for occupancy — An Ellabell man contacted the Bryan County Sheriff’s Office April 20 about his son, who he had said could stay in a storage shed on the property, but not in his house. The man was concerned because the shed had caught fire but still contained some items. Deputies contacted Bryan County Fire Department officials, who said they preferred the son not stay in the shed until an investigation into the cause of the fire was complete.
