Theft by Taking
On June 25 a man reported to the sheriff's office the theft of scrap metal by a relative. Upon arriving at the Old Monticello Road address, the deputy was told by the victim that around 8 a.m. he witnessed a relative stealing scrap metal from two old buildings on his property. He added that he was seen leaving in a ‘90s model blue Chevrolet pickup truck and there was another man with him driving a green pickup truck, which was loaded with scrap metal.
Deputies were dispatched to an Irwinton Road trailer park July 2 in reference to a call that someone was throwing nails in the driveway. One of the tenants told deputies that a large number of nails was found in the driveway of the trailer park near her mobile home. Another tenant reported seeing a red vehicle that he hadn’t seen before entering onto the property the night before. After discovering there were no surveillance cameras on the property, deputies questioned neighbors in surrounding mobile homes.
On July 2 at about 3:26 p.m. deputies were called to a South Jefferson Street apartment complex in regards to an individual being chased by someone with a screwdriver. Upon arrival, they spoke with the victim who said when he walked outside of his apartment, he was confronted by another tenant with whom he had previous altercations. After an exchange of words, the victim said the man pulled a screwdriver out of his pocket and struck him on the face. He then chased him around the apartment complex until the victim ran inside and called 911.
