From Richmond Hill Police Department reports: 

Theft: A woman went to RHPD on April 15 around 1 p.m. to report her wallet was stolen from her purse while she was at “an Easter Event” from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 .m. at J.F. Gregory. “She said she did not realize it until she had gone to lunch and began receiving from her bank to confirm denied transactions from a Target in Savannah.”

The woman said she told the bank the charges were fraudulent and had her debit and credit cards canceled. Also stolen was $80 in cash and her driver’s license. The woman also reported the theft to Savannah PD.

Road rage: An officer was sent to Hardees around 12:24 p.m. April 14 regarding a “white male threatening the complainant during road rage,” a report said. When the officer got to Hardees the officer discovered the people involved weren’t there, and was told the complainant was over at Walgreens.

There, the officer noted the complainant seemed “very irate,” and “stated he was driving from the dry cleaners turning left onto Ford Avenue when he noticed a blue sedan pulled in front of him and smashed his brakes.”

The complainant said he was only going about 20 mph so he was able to stop, but “when the at occurred he moved over to the right lane,” and “was now driving beside the driver of the blue car. He advised that he and the driver had a few exchanges of words. He further stated that after talking to the driver of the blue sedan pulled in front of him again and then got out of the car and walked towards him. He stated that he felt threatened so he drove off and parked at Walgreens.”

The complainant didn’t have a tag number.

Matter of record: This is about a mysterious bump in the road. A woman reported April 12 that on April 8 “she pulled out on (Highway 17 north) from Up Town Deli area where she felt a bump in the road where one of her rear tires was popped due to something in the roadway. (She) stated she did the same maneuver today where she hit something else in the roadway on (Highway 17 north), during this time (she) had two flat tires.”

The woman was able to get the tires fixed – the first incident cost her $215, the second $348, the report said. She got a case number for insurance and the officer rode the area to see if he could find out what might’ve caused her tires to go flat, but didn’t see anything.
