She said the woman is threatening her and asking others for the complainant’s phone number. Complainant said she doesn’t think the threats are credible, but she wanted documentation.

CANTERBERRY PLACE – Complainant said he was contacted by someone claiming to be a deputy with the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office. The fake deputy said the complainant had two failure to appear bench warrants that could be cleared if he purchased Green Dot tickets in the amount of $2,000. Complainant said he did that and gave the numbers to the caller, but realized it was a scam when the caller asked for more. Complainant was advised that a law enforcement agency would never call to collect a fine over the phone.

HAWKSHAW CREEK ROAD – Responding to a domestic dispute with weapons reportedly involved, the man in the dispute was arrested following interviews with both parties.

HIGHWAY 80 EAST – Complainant said a vehicle of a relative was being stored at her house. She claims the driver of the tow truck company who came to retrieve the vehicle cut the chain on a locked fence to get the vehicle.

FRANKLIN ROAD – During a domestic dispute, a woman said she went to a residence where she was staying with her child to retrieve some of their belongings. She said during her visit, she had a verbal and physical confrontation with her former boyfriend.
