Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office
Theft by Deception
On June 24 the sheriff's office was contacted by the manager of a North Columbia Street watersports store in regards to an unauthorized transaction on the company credit card. He told the deputy that he was contacted by an individual who said an order was placed by him on May 29 via the Internet for two Yamaha Crankshafts. The manager said he hadn't placed the order and he called the credit card company to cancel the transaction. After calling the delivery service to cancel the delivery, he was informed that the delivery had already been completed. Law enforcement tracked the package to a Westminster, Colo. address.
On June 21 a deputy was dispatched to the Hardwick Fire Department in reference to a man claiming he had just been assaulted. According to fire personnel, the man came into the fire station and said he was jumped by someone on Harrisburg Road. After speaking with the victim, the deputy was told that the assault took place at a club in the Harrisburg area. The man said he was hit from behind as he left the parking lot.
A woman at an Ivey Drive address reported an unknown person on her property and damage done to her bedroom window around 5:22 p.m. June 20. According to the woman, she was laying on her bed texting when she heard a loud noise followed by glass breaking. She discovered that her bedroom window was broken. When inspecting outside she did not see anyone around who may have caused the glass to break, but she gave the deputy the name of an individual who she suspected was responsible for the damage. Deputies attempted to contact the man for questioning but were unsuccessful.
Theft by Taking
A woman at a Tara Place address reported the theft of jewelry occurring sometime before June 23. She told the deputy that while in her upstairs closet, she noticed that a box that contained her jewelry was not in the right place. Upon checking the box she discovered that she was missing several pieces of jewelry, which included two double strand pearl necklaces, two wedding rings, eight necklaces, two necklace sets, a cluster diamond ring, and two single strand pearl necklaces.
Criminal Damage to Property
On June 20 a woman reported seeing a group of juveniles at a church on Hardwick Street, throwing rocks at cars. She told the deputy that while driving by the church, she observed approximately 10 juveniles running over a hill and throwing rocks at her vehicle. She was unable to identify any of the juveniles. The rocks thrown caused two starburst cracks in her windshield.
