INCIDENTS

▲ PATRICK WAY — Complainant said she needed her mobile home moved from Chatham County to Bulloch County. She said the contractor requested she CashApp half the cost to his wife, which the complainant did. She was given a date that the mobile home would be moved. The date came and went and so did several more promised by the mover. Finally, the mover told her their trucks were down and to hire another mover. After ignoring texts and other attempts by the complainant to contact the mover, complainant hired another company to move the mobile home, which was moved. Complainant filed a civil suit in Screven County and it was found the complainant was owed $2,346 by the original movers. With no payment yet received, the complainant was advised to file an incident report in Bulloch County and pursue Magistrate Court action in Bulloch.

▲ WHISPER LANE — Complainant said an unknown person called him on his cell phone. The person said he was calling from Judicial Services Legal Document Center. He had the complainant’s last four numbers of his Social Security card, his date of birth and his mother’s address. He was given a number to call for mediation. Believing the call was a scam, the complainant contacted the Sheriff’s Office.

▲ BRANNEN DRIVE — Complainant said someone tried to break into the vehicle he drives for the business he works for. An unknown offender attempted to get into the vehicle and caused about $200 worth of damage to the door.

▲ KELLY ROAD — Complainant said a tow company was trying to take her vehicle, but she had made arrangements with her finance company to arrange payments. She got into her vehicle to prevent it from being towed. The tow truck driver said the finance company issued the repossession request.
