Police Blotter: Man, car, CDs shot in Sampit

  • Friday, July 18, 2014

A 63-year-old Georgetown man said he was shot while driving on Powell Road near Village Road at about 3:30 p.m. July 11.

He said he was driving to collect insurance payments “when he heard a bang and felt a stinging sensation on his stomach,” the report states.

He said he noticed pellets inside his car and his CDs were shattered.

The man got out of the car and saw several holes in the driver’s side door.

He said he did not see anyone in the area when the incident occurred.

The victim did not require medical attention.

Patient threatens staff

A 31-year-old man was arrested after causing problems and threatening staff at Georgetown Memorial Hospital July 10.

A nurse said the Georgetown man had been disruptive and was trying to leave while still hooked to his IV. The nurse told him he would need to remove the IV if he was leaving.

The man reportedly responded by saying he has three brothers and if he could get to his gun “it would be a bad day.”

Police found the man face down on the floor of his hospital room and he was refusing to cooperate with staff members.

When it was determined it was medically safe for him to leave, the man was arrested and was taken to jail charged with disturbing a hospital.

Son assaults family

A Pennyroyal Road man called 911 Saturday because his 34-year-old son seemed “under the influence of something and assaulted multiple people in his home,” the report states.

There were “obvious injuries on several people” but all “refused medical treatment.”

The complainant said his son got mad when he told his kids to go to bed.

The suspect allegedly pushed his mother down and then bit one of his sons on the left wrist and right forearm. He also reportedly headbutted another child in the mouth. That child retaliated by punching his dad in the nose causing it to bleed.

The suspect’s father grabbed a pot and hit the suspect with it. The man then started tearing up things in the living room.

The man fled the scene before deputies arrived.

The case was to be presented to a magistrate for warrant consideration.

Employee theft

A former Walmart employee is accused of stealing from the store. A store security worker said they had a feeling the 27-year-old man was stealing so they reviewed video from surveillance cameras.

On May 14, the man was recorded picking up four cell phones and walking to an unauthorized area. When he is seen again he is not holding the phones.

When the man was leaving work for the day he walked back to the unauthorized area with a shopping bag.

He is then seen leaving the store with the phones in the bag. The value of the property is nearly $2,200.

The security worker said the suspect must have gotten word he was being investigated because he quit his job.

The case is under investigation.

Gun theft

A woman from Farrelly Street says a gun belonging to her late husband appears to have been taken.

She said she knows the revolver, usually kept in a night stand drawer, was there July 2. She noticed it was gone Saturday.

The woman said there had been some repairmen in the house but she never left them alone.

She also said she had someone watch her house while she was away and that person allowed her boyfriend to visit. It’s unknown if either is responsible.

Front Street burglary

A man who owns a house in the 100 block of Front Street reported a burglary July 9. He said the home is for sale and he had not been there for a while so it could have happened anytime after June 1.

He said a washing machine, dryer and dehumidifier were taken.

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