The following is information compiled from public records of the Milledgeville Police Department and the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office. It is our policy to not disclose the names of victims. These reports do not reflect guilt or innocence. An “arrest” does not always indicate incarceration. The charges filed are noted in the narrative. 

Milledgeville Police Department

Lost tag

An officer met with a man on Feb. 9 in the MPD front lobby in regard to a lost tag. The man said he purchased a vehicle approximately a month and a half ago and when he called the tag office about his tag he was told it had been mailed out about a week prior. He was directed to report the tag stolen. An officer ran his temporary tag and it came back as an unclaimed tag. 

Fraud 

An officer met with a woman on Feb. 9 who said that approximately two weeks prior she had started a new job. The company sent her an email asking her if she wanted to work from home and she sent the company a picture of her driver’s license and filled out an application that included her providing her social security number. She stated that the company was based out of Chicago and Hong Kong. Her job involved the company sending her packages and her printing labels and repackaging the items in order to reship them. She was supposed to get paid on Feb. 18, but she realized the job might be a scam after she could no longer communicate with anyone with the company. She was advised to monitor her credit since the company had her personal information.
