Milledgeville Police Department

Entering an Automobile

An officer responded to the area of the 1000 block of South Elbert Street June 15, in reference to an entering of an automobile while the owner was having work done. The owner stated that his vehicle was at the business for three weeks getting work done and when he came to pick it up, items were missing. He stated that his CD player, AMP and speakers were taken from his vehicle 



An officer responded to Walmart on North Columbia Street June 15, in reference to counterfeit money. The complainant stated she cashed her check at Walmart on June 13 and took a portion of the cash to pay her water bill at the water department. She was alerted by an employee that one of her $100 bills was counterfeit. She brought the bill back to Walmart, but they stated that they could not replace the bill unless she proved it was from Walmart. The officer inspected the bill and placed it into evidence for further evaluation.


Disorderly conduct and Obstruction of Officers

An officer responded to the area of Wray Homes June 16, in reference to possible shots heard in the area. While the officer was canvasing the area a car came speeding in the area. The officer saw three occupants leave the vehicle. While in the area, the officer heard a car run over an object in the road that sounded metallic. He searched the area and a short time later a female began questioning why the officer was there. She stated that he was lying and she began to accuse him of searching her vehicle. While the officer was trying to calm down the female she began to posture up to him, as if trying to fight him. He could smell the odor of alcohol on her breath and he asked her to step away. When the officer attempted to have dispatch run the information on the female, she reached up and attempted to pull his hand off of his radio. The officer placed her in handcuffs due to her erratic behavior and began to search the area for evidence of shots fired. The female refused to sit in the back of the police vehicle, so the officer pulled her into the vehicle. As he pulled her, she kicked the passenger’s side rear door and pushed herself out of the driver’s side of the vehicle. She was placed back in and transported to Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office.   



An officer responded to the area of the 400 block of East McIntosh Street June 16, in reference to a motor vehicle theft. The complainant stated that he observed a group of five teenage males drinking and hanging around his vehicle. He stated that the males gather in the area often and he knew that was his vehicle. The complainant left to go to the store and came back about a 30 minutes later and the males and his vehicle were gone. The compliant stated that he had lost the key to his vehicle approximately three weeks ago so he was unable to start the vehicle. 


Theft by Shoplifting 

An officer responded to the Jet Food Store on South Mayne Street June 16, in reference to shoplifting. An elderly male stole three boxes of cigars. The male stood in the store for a moment, walked into the stock room and grabbed three boxes of cigars.

A short time later, the male returns and grabs the two boxes he left on the shelf and leaves the store. The male was given a citation for shoplifting.
