The following are reports from Emanuel County Sheriff’s Office…
A local bank filed a theft by taking report. An offender received a check from a local industry, then reported it lost or stolen. The check issuer then put a stop payment on the check and issued a replacement check. The offender used both checks and used the first one to open an account at the bank, thus the report was filed.
A complainant filed a report via phone about an accident involving his vehicle. According to the complainant, on July 6, he attempted to put his boat into the river using his vehicle. Per the complainant, while trying to drive out of the river, he got his vehicle stuck in the sandbar. He stated that he attempted to dig it out of the sand but was unsuccessful. The complainant then stated that his vehicle “somehow” ended up flooded by the water. When the deputy asked the complainant why he didn’t call a tow truck, he brought up the cost of the service. The vehicle was removed from the river at a later time and, as of the time of the report, was being kept at the impound lot.
A victim filed a report and stated that he took one of his vehicles to an offender to be restored. The victim stated that he was being misled into believing the vehicle was being worked on. The last time the victim saw the vehicle was about four years prior at the offender’s shop located on Calhoun Street. The victim recently learned that the offender sold his vehicle, which is now located in Alabama.
A deputy arrested an offender who had an outstanding probation warrant.
A deputy met with a complainant on Cordie Road in reference to stolen items.
A complainant on Quick Road filed a theft by taking report. According to the complainant, he hired an individual to do a construction job and gave him an advance. Afterward, the offender wouldn’t finish the job.
A complainant stated that she was over at a family member’s residence when she got out of her vehicle, thought she put it in park, and went inside the residence. When she came back out a few minutes later, the vehicle had rolled into the victim’s vehicle and a grill that was sitting in the backyard near the fence. Both vehicles received moderate damage.
The sheriff’s office had an abandoned vehicle removed from Odomville Church Road.
Another abandoned vehicle, this time on U.S. 80 West, was removed by the sheriff’s office.
Deputies assisted with a family violence and assault/battery incident on Highway 192 South.
A deputy responded to a business in Oak Park and took a report about a theft that had occurred the night prior. The complainant stated that he parked his tractor-trailer at the business and left it overnight. When he arrived the next day to go to work, he found that the ECM computer module was missing from the engine block. Review of the security camera footage showed a sedan pull up beside the tractor-trailer. Three unknown subjects exited the vehicle while one or more crawled under the truck. Due to the poor quality of the footage, no subjects or accurate vehicle description was able to be obtained.
A deputy arrested a probationer who had an outstanding warrant.
A complainant reported a lost/stolen tag.
A complainant stated that she went out of town and left her vehicle at a friend’s house. When the complainant came back home and went to get her vehicle, she stated that it was gone. The complainant then asked the friend if she had the vehicle, and the friend said she did not. The friend stated that she thought the complainant had already gotten the vehicle. The complainant stated that she got a phone call from another friend, who told her that she saw her vehicle in Swainsboro earlier that day.
