Upon arriving home, after a month away, a Deer Springs Loop, Georgetown resident, discovered “several things missing” from his home. Among the things missing werea John Deere Riding Lawnmower, an aluminum ladder, stainless steel table, backpack sprayers, a Hoelite chainsaw and a four-foot by eight-foot trailer.
The man’s son told Georgetown Sheriff’s deputies that he had noticed the missing items but had not said anything to his father as he didn’t want to upset him.

Deputies patrolled the area but were unable to locate the truck or the Easter bunny.

Not that funny
Georgetown Police responded to Broad and Front Streets upon seeing one of two women walking on the sidewalk, fall to the ground. The woman lay on the ground laughing. Both women were intoxicated, according tot he incident report.
After inquiring if the women were alright and suggesting that they call for a ride since they were both intoxicated, one of the women called the officer a name. Advising them not to use profanity, the woman responded using more profanity at which point the officer attempted to place her in handcuffs but she resisted arrest.
