BCSO reports: Dog brings home jar of pot

From Bryan County Sheriff’s Office reports: 

An Ellabell man reported Oct. 28 his dog “walked back into the yard holding a small clear glass jar in its mouth,” and he thought what was inside was marijuana so he called deputies. 

The stuff in the jar was tested. It was pot. It was seized and booked into Bryan County Sheriff’s Office to be destroyed, the report said.

 Unruly juvenile: Deputies were sent Oct. 11 to a Richmond Hill address regarding a 13-year-old runaway. Richmond Hill Police Department officers spotted the girl on Towne Center Drive near Brisbon Road and were able to catch and hold her until deputies arrived.

Deputies were told by juvenile authorities to turn her back over to her mother. A deputy “also looked up the number of reports on this juvenile and as of this date 10/11/2020 there have been 36 reports generated on this juvenile plus one which makes 37 total ….”

 Stolen truck: Deputies were told Oct. 24 a black Freightliner box truck was found on Highway 67 in Pembroke near Fort Stewart. They found the truck, which had furniture company decals on the cab and box, “backed into the wood line with the cab blocking the roadway. It appeared that the driver attempted  to turn around, but got stuck in the ditch.”

A check of the tag showed it had been reported stolen that morning in Winter Garden, Florida. The truck was empty and it was towed. Winter Garden police were called and said the truck had furniture in it when it was reported stolen and that the owners would be told they could get their truck in Pembroke.

That’s a distance of nearly 300 miles, if you’re curious.

 Damage to property: A woman reported Oct. 25 she was driving down Wilma Edwards Road in her 2020 Chevy Suburban and passed Black Creek Golf Course “when a golf ball struck the front fender of her vehicle on the driver’s side near the hood.”

The woman said she stopped “as soon as the incident occurred and asked a group of guys if they had just hit the golf ball. Initially the group did not immediately claim the ball.” Then they did, and she got  the name and number of “the male  that was teeing off  when her vehicle got struck by the ball.”

 Dog attack: Deputies were sent to a Richmond Hill address around 12:30 a.m. Oct. 24 “in reference to dogs trying to attack the complainant and her cat.”

There, a deputy saw several dogs running around and a German shepherd being called by the owner (at a nearby address), then run back and attack a cat on the side of the road.

The complainant told BCSO she was outside trying to protect her cats after being awoken by dogs on her porch. While she was talking, the deputy “observed the German shepherd running toward (a nearby address) with what appeared to be a dead cat in its mouth,” the report said, noting the cat was found on the side of the road and seemed dead.

The deputy then talked to the dog owner, who said earlier in the day she’d  had lawn care people working on her yard and had just come home to see the gate had been left open.

The cat’s owner told the deputy she wanted to prosecute.

 Damage to property: An Ellabell man reported Oct. 25  “some one shot an arrow into the roof of his home.” The man said he wasn’t sure who it was, but might’ve been someone who lives nearby. A deputy checked with neighbors but had no luck finding anyone who knew anything about it.
