MILLEDGEVILLE — Theft by Taking

Deputies were dispatched to a Crestwood Drive address in reference to the theft of prescription medication May 7. A woman told officers that an unknown person took 60 Oxycontin pills from her purse, which was located in the master bedroom of the residence. On the day in question, the only visitor she had was her daughter who showed up unexpectedly from rehab to visit with her kids.

Theft of Service

An employee of Tri-County EMC reported the theft of electric service by the owners of a Little Road residence between May 1 and May 7. The employee stated that he believes someone has been tampering with the power meter, which has made it difficult to correctly register the power usage of the home. Upon investigation, he noticed a plastic lock on the meter had small holes drilled into it so someone could take it on and off.


A woman reported a break-in at her Ellis Street residence sometime between 8:06 p.m. and 8:21 p.m. May 10. Upon entering the residence, she noticed that her daughter’s insulin was missing from an ice chest in the kitchen. The door to the home was secure and there were no signs of forced entry.
