A burglary was reported at a home on DeBordieu Blvd. April 12.
A pair of earrings, reportedly valued at $7,000, were reported stolen. Nothing else was reported missing.
There was no sign of forced entry into the home so the owner believes someone used a key they keep hidden to get inside.
A man who works security at the Riverview Club in the northern section of the county called 911 at about 3 a.m. Sunday because of a fight in progress.
He said he walked in the restroom and saw several men using marijuana. He told them to stop using the drug on the property. A 30-year-old Georgetown man told the guard he ran the place and the guard could not tell him what to do.
Later, the suspect began to “tussle” with the guard which escalated into him hitting the guard on the head twice before running from the scene.
The suspect reportedly said he was going to get a gun and others at the club stopped him from taking the gun inside.
Information was expected to be presented to a magistrate for possible prosecution.

The area was searched but the man was not located.
