HIGHWAY 301 SOUTH – Complainant said a 2010 truck semi-trailer was stolen from his place of business. He said there are many truckers who pick up trailers at his business, so he doesn’t know which one took it. However, the trailer has been noted as active along the Eastern seaboard registering several toll charges and a citation in Florida for running a red light. Complainant gave the permanent license tag number and the VIN number of the trailer, which were entered as stolen.

SLOUGH CREEK ROAD – Complainant said while she was checking her credit report, she noticed her score had dropped. Upon further checking, she found someone had opened a Verizon wireless account in her name and there was an outstanding balance of $202. She said Verizon required her to file a police report to shut down the account and pursue a fraud investigation.

HIGHWAY 80 WEST – Complainant said her brother had taken her bicycle. She said she believed he may have taken it to their father’s house. Upon calling the father, he said he had not seen him since he left for work. A few minutes later, the brother called the complainant. She had the phone to the deputy who advised him he needed to return the bicycle immediately. He said he would. The complainant said she did not want to press charges at this time, as long as the bicycle was returned.

OLD RIVER ROAD – Complainant said an unknown subject had accessed his property and spray painted the bottom of a water tower. Multiple words and images were visible at the bottom of the tower. He said there is a video camera and he will check the footage to see if anything useful was captured. He would let the SO know if there was.

BURKHALTER ROAD – Complainant and her husband said someone came into their residence while they were out. She showed the deputy several pictures on walls and sheets on windows that were now on the floor. She said there was a hand print on her bathroom mirror she said was not hers nor her husband’s. She said she received a call from someone who said her dog was missing and she was able to get the dog back. She doesn’t know how any of these things happened.

GABBIES RUN – Complainant said an unknown offender entered his truck and two shotguns from the back seat area. He had the serial number for one of the guns, but the other gun was a family heirloom from the 1930s and he did not have a number. The one number was entered and the gun reported as stolen.

JOHN R. COLEMAN ROAD – Complainant said his granddaughter told him she saw a man on their property. Complainant said he confronted the man. Upon speaking with the offender, he said he was cutting through the property to check out a pond to fish. He said he didn’t steal anything and nothing was found on his person. Complainant asked the offender be criminally trespassed and the offender received a citation.
