➤ Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office

▲ ELDORA ROAD — A woman reported that, while outside her home, she noticed that a window to her daughter’s bedroom was open and that the screen was lying on the ground. Going inside, she found the room had been ransacked. The woman had called her daughter, who returned, inspected the room, and told the deputy that the only thing missing was $1,000 cash that had been in a safe. The deputy reported that the lock on the safe appeared to have been tampered with and dusted it for fingerprints at the victims’ request.

▲ A RESIDENTIAL AREA — A Bulloch County resident reported receiving a phone call from an “800” number which she gave in full to the investigating deputy. The caller told the resident that her Social Security number had been compromised and asked her to verify information including her Social Security number, name and date of birth. The caller then asked if the resident had been to Texas or Mexico recently, because a car, rented in her name, had been found with blood and drugs in it. The caller asked the resident to write down a “case number” and “employee number” and to go to a Fred’s store or Walmart and buy three gift cards in amounts ranging up to $1,500 to clear her name. At this point the victim hung up and called the Sheriff’s Office, which confirmed her suspicion that this was a scam.

▲ WILLIAM JAMES MIDDLE SCHOOL — Two students, juveniles, were reported to have gotten into an argument Friday in which threats of “bringing heat” were made. No arrest was made at the time due to lack of probable cause, a deputy reported.

▲ OLD HAPPY ROAD — A man reported that his vehicle was “carjacked” by another man who got in and drove off with the first man’s wife and child. But witnesses reportedly gave a different version of what transpired, and the wife and child were located unharmed. The deputy then summarized the incident as “domestic related” and made no arrest, instead advising the complainant of the Magistrate Court process if he wishes to pursue charges himself. 

➤ Statesboro Police Department 

▲ HIGHWAY 80 EAST — The Goodwill store reported receiving a counterfeit $100 bill, which was turned over to police.

▲ LANIER DRIVE — The owner of a 2005 GMC Sierra reported it was stolen after someone took the keys from his apartment. The truck was located in a different section of the same apartment complex, but the incident remained under investigation.
