INCIDENTS

▲ SWEETWATER COURT — Complainant said someone had used his identity to get an Economic Injury Disaster loan from the Small Business Administration. The SBA showed him documentation of two loan applications. One for $756,641 and another for $320,392, for a total of $1.1 million. Complainant said the offender had all of his correct information, but did not have his Federal ID # or correct email address. Complainant said both the FBI and SBA asked him to make a police report about the incident. 

▲ PINE BLUFF DRIVE — Complainant said her daughter suffered a traumatic brain injury and was scammed out of $5,000. The daughter said she was talking to the offender on both WhatsApp and Google Hangout. Offender convinced her to send him the $5,000 via Google Play and he would invest it for her through his company into Bitcoin. She realized later it was a scam. She was advised to contact Google customer service to tell them about the scam. 

▲ RAMBLEWOOD ROAD — Complainant said someone stole a check out of his mailbox for $87.19 from his son. He said someone altered the amount to $4,087.19. It is not known when the check was processed.

▲ PINE BLUFF DRIVE — Complainant said she purchased windshield wipers off a website and also subscribed to a magazine for $2.99 per month. She said she then received an email that she had been charged $3,400 from a company. When she contacted the number, the man identified himself and said they had incorrectly credited her $3,400 and she would have to pay it back in gift cards. She said she saw the $3,400 show up in her account, so she purchased $1,500 in Apple gift card and gave the man who called the card ID information. She then saw the $3,400 was gone from her account and she realized she was the victim of a scam.

▲ FOSTER WILLIAMS DRIVE — Complainant said her Honda Foreman 400 4X4 was stolen from her yard. She said she is not sure when it was taken. 

▲ ARCHIES WALK — Complainant said two men who use to live with him stole, among several items, an Apple watch when they moved to Warner Robins. He said he enabled the “Lost Mode” feature of the watch, which automatically powers it down. When it was powered back up, it gave an exact location and address in Warner Robins. Complainant said he has been unable to get his property returned.

▲ HARTLEY DRIVE — Complainant said a Smith & Wesson SD9VE 9MM hand gun was stolen out of his car. He said when he went to trade-in his vehicle, he noticed the gun missing. He could not provide the serial number to the gun.

▲ DRY BRANCH VILLAGE — Complainant said that her boyfriend poured oil and gasoline over her and then left when she called the police. She said she wanted to press charges, but no oil or gas fumes could be detected, so the officer told her he could not proceed with an arrest due to lack of evidence. She was advised of Magistrate Court procedures to evict her boyfriend.
