Connect Crime: Lashing out

    ALCOHOL ABUSE — A man living at Dry Branch Village Mobile Home Park was arrested after he got into a physical confrontation with a woman and a juvenile boy. The argument started because the boy threw away some unopened beer.

    YET ANOTHER SCAM — A man at a local seafood shop called police when he received a call from someone claiming to be from Georgia Power who was threatening to cut off his electricity unless he paid around $500 on a late bill.  The caller demanded the victim put the required amount on a Green Dot card, but the victim, recognizing a scam, alerted police.

    BAT OR NOT? — A woman showed up at her boyfriend’s Thomas Street home to find his baby’s mama already there. An argument started, and the woman told police that the mother of her boyfriend’s children attacked her with a baseball bat.
