HIGH SPIRITED – A Savannah-Chatham County Metro Police K9 apparently became too excited during training at the Travis Airfield in Savannah, and damaged a “drug aid” used in training that was issued to the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office. The aid, which apparently held some sort of drug, was collected, weighed and repackaged.

 

GASSED OR OUT OF GAS? – A man sat in his truck at the GATE station on South Main Street in Statesboro for half an hour before someone called police. It turns out he was passed out behind the wheel and was arrested on DUI charges.

 

IN PLAIN SIGHT – A Ponderosa Road, Portal man was arrested after stealing his neighbor’s TV and antenna – and installing the antenna outside his own door. When the woman saw her property on display, she called the law – and they found the TV in the man’s storage shed. He claimed he found both items in a nearby Dumpster.

 

NAIL SALON BROUHAHA – A nail salon employee and a client engaged in a battle of blows during a dispute over service. Both were arrested. Friends of the female client posted a video of the aftermath on social media, and the business owner later filed a report with police that the customer’s family was harassing him by phone.

 

MYSTERY ASSAULT – A man who was found lying next to a fence on May Road, with a bloody nose and bruise over his eye, refused EMS treatment and would not cooperate with deputies and tell them what happened. He was arrested, taken for a medical evaluation and then booked into the jail on obstruction charges.

 

SNAKES ALIVE – A man walking on Bell Road was reported suspicious after knocking in another man’s door to ask whether someone lived there. He appeared intoxicated, had a vial with suspicious white powder on a piece of plastic and told the deputy he was “infested with bugs and had snakes crawling on him.” He was arrested.

 

FLASHING FLIGHTS - A woman who said she works at the Savannah/Hilton Head National Airport told deputies someone flashed a green laser at two U.S. Army H60 helicopters that flew about 5 miles north of the Statesboro airport.

 

THAT’S A BIG TURTLE – A Kendricks Road man told deputies someone stole an African Sulkata turtle he kept in a cage beside his workshop. The turtle was valued at $2,000 and reportedly weighs 40 pounds.
