Police Report - August 8

Note: All information included in this report is taken from law enforcement incident reports and arrest records, which are public records and available for review at any and all local law enforcement agencies. Not every arrest leads to a conviction. Guilt or innocence is determined by the court system.
    
Statesboro Police Arrests    
    NOTE: The Melissa Brown listed in Monday's Statesboro Herald as being charged with battery and cruelty to children was not the Melissa Brown employed by the Bulloch County school system.
    (Also, due to a temporary issue regarding computer programs used by the Statesboro Police Department, names and addresses of those arrested were not immediately available Tuesday. The Statesboro Herald publishes the ages and street addresses of persons charged with offenses to avoid confusion between two citizens who may share the same name. Statesboro Police Department spokesmen said they have resolved this issue.)
