Police Blotter: Golf cart stolen during fireworks

  • Tuesday, July 15, 2014

A golf cart, belonging to a woman from the 400 block of Front Street, was reported stolen on the 4th of July.

The owner said she parked the cart in the 800 block of Front Street to watch the fireworks display and when she returned it was gone.

She said she was told by another person a man named “Doug” was seen driving the cart on Front Street but she could not provide any other information.

The golf cart is pink and yellow striped and has the phrase “Why wait til 5, it’s 4 o’clock somewhere” written on it.

Later that night, police received a report of an intoxicated person driving the cart matching the description near East Bay Park but when they responded the man and the golf cart were not found.

Cheated out of drugs

A woman from the 100 block of North Street in Andrews said three men were on her property July 6 trying to steal tools.

The woman said the men told her they were taking the tools because her ex-boyfriend cheated them out of drugs and stole the tools from them.

The woman told a deputy the tools belong to her son and she just wanted the men to leave her yard.

“The males left the property and left the tools without incident,” the report states.

Sugar in the gas tanks

A man from Kisha Drive in the Browns Ferry area said his 1998 Buick car and 1991 Nissan truck were damaged when someone poured sugar in the gas tanks.

He said on the morning of July 4 he heard a vehicle driving by his home slowly but did not think much of it.

Later in the day he walked outside and saw the gas tank lids on his car and truck were open and the caps were gone.

He said the person who was driving by his house earlier in the day was a woman he knows but he said there was no proof she was responsible for the damage.

He told the deputy he and the woman have been feuding for a while for various reasons.

The deputy questioned the woman and found no reason to name her as a suspect.

IRS scam

A woman from Isaac Drive said she received a call July 2 from someone posing as an IRS agent who was trying to scam her out of money.

She said she became suspicious because the man called from a blocked number and would not give her a number she could use to call him back.

The caller told the woman she had 45 minutes to pay the IRS $2,900 or a deputy would arrive at her house to place her under arrest.

The woman said she stayed on the phone with the caller because he warned her she would be arrested if she ended the call.

The woman’s husband then got on the phone and the caller would not speak with him.

The woman took the phone back and informed the caller she had called the Sheriff’s Office. He responded by saying if she told a deputy anything “no one in the U.S. would be able to help her with this situation,” the report states.

The couple said they wanted a report on file in case something occurred.

Threats from ex

A woman from Chatsworth Court said she has been receiving threatening calls from her 22-year-old ex-boyfriend.

She told a deputy she has already filed several reports in reference to the threats and she is now “beginning to get worried.”

She said her ex called and said he would “knock her teeth down her throat” and “beat her [butt].”

He also allegedly said he would run her off the road the next time he sees her driving.

According to the woman, her ex has driven by her house several times making threats.

She wants a restraining order placed against him. The woman was advised to see a magistrate.

Domestic dispute

A deputy responded to the 4500 block of Rose Hill Road July 5, because of a domestic situation. The deputy saw clothing scattered throughout the front yard and a man standing near the clothing.

The man said he had an argument with the woman he had been living with for about six months.

He said the argument started when he received a call from another woman.

He said his girlfriend told him to leave and started throwing his belongings out of the house.

The man said he was planning on leaving the house anyway so the only reason he called 911 was because he wanted to get the remainder of his things out of the house without a fight.

While waiting for the man to collect his things, his girlfriend told the deputy she and her boyfriend got into an argument the previous week and he pushed her on a bed causing bruising on her arm. The deputy saw the bruising and took photos to place in the evidence file.

The man left after getting his belongings.

The information about the woman allegedly being assaulted was presented to a magistrate for possible prosecution.

Information is subject to change as investigations proceed. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
