From Richmond Hill Police Department reports. 

Matter of record: An officer responded to Sterling Creek Park around 8:30 a.m. Oct. 28 “in reference to animal carcasses left near the entrance.” 

There, the officer found “three piglets and a half processed sow left in a blue plastic kids swimming pool,” and it “appeared that the animals had been shot with a rifle.” It was unclear whether the animals had been shot there or just dumped there, the report said.  

The city’s public works provider, EOM, was called to dispose of the remains. 

Public intoxication: A Savannah man was arrested around 9 p.m. Oct 30 after he first went “into the business (a local bar) and laid down on the pool table, at which time they asked him to leave. In doing so the male fell in the middle of the street and laid there at which time (bar staff) called law enforcement.”
The man, who had been moved to a curb, was seriously drunk, based on the report description, and so he was arrested. But Bryan County Jail staff “advised that (the man) was too intoxicated for their acceptance parameters and denied taking him in,” so the man was taken back to RHPD and family members were called to come get him.  

He also had a car. It was left in the parking lot. 

Wanted person: Officers were sent to an area of I-95 around 10:23 p.m. Oct. 26 “in reference to a subject hanging on the overpass.” Officers found the subject, a 40-year-old Richmond Hill woman, at the Highway 17 interchange, and “advised she was just walking along the edge of I-95 to avoid the grass,” the report said.  

She was asked if she planned on hurting herself and said no, and gave officers her name and date of birth. Turns out she was wanted in Effingham County on a probation violation. She was arrested and turned over to an Effingham County deputy.
