Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office
Theft by Taking
Deputies were dispatched to a Martin Drive residence June 26 in reference to stolen items from a vacant property. The owner told the deputies when she went to check on the property she discovered someone had removed the padlock from the basement door and taken several items from the residence. Copper tubing pieces, a leaf blower, a ladder and an Emerson brand microwave were reported missing from the address.
On June 28 around 4:24 a.m., a deputy observed a vehicle traveling east on N. Glynn Street failing to maintain the lane. The deputy stopped the vehicle and noticed that the driver had glassy eyes and slurred speech. The driver admitted to having two 12 ounce Bud Light beers about an hour prior to being stopped. After conducting a field sobriety test, the woman was arrested and issued a citation for driving under the influence of alcohol.
Criminal Damage to Property
A deputy was called to an O'Connor Drive residence June 26 in reference to a damage to property incident. Upon arrival, the deputy was told by the victim that someone had tampered with his Georgia Power meter and that it was malfunctioning. He said two weeks prior to filing the report, two men came to his home to install ground rods to correct a surge problem he was having near his pool. They said they needed to disable his electricity meter as a safety precaution. After leaving, the man called his pool maintenance man and was told that he had not sent anyone to the residence to install equipment. A Georgia Power investigator was informed of the incident.
