Police Blotter: Sibling jealousy leads to trouble

  • Friday, August 8, 2014

Central Dispatch received a call around 9:30 a.m., July 31, from someone who heard a woman screaming for help.

The scream was coming from a home on Belle Isle Road.

Once on the scene, the deputy heard a male and two female voices coming from the home.

The deputy knocked on the door which was answered by a 49-year-old man from North Carolina. The deputy noted the man “did not seemed surprised” to see a law enforcement officer at the house.

The man invited the deputy in the house. While inside and while trying to talk to the man about what was going on, a 22-year-old woman, also from NC, interrupted saying her parents favor her younger sister and she was tired of it.

She said she was mad because her parents bought her sister a newer car than hers which has caused her friends to pick on her about her car.

The man said his daughter has anger issues and she said her father attacked her by grabbing her by the neck.

The man also said his daughter had something in her hand and was going to use it to damage her sister’s car. He said when he tried to stop her, she hit him then he hit her back. They both hit each other “a few times,” the report states.

The argument continued until the deputy arrived.

The deputy said he felt it was a “mutual combat situation” and asked if they wanted to press charges.

Both said “no.”

The man said he was packing to take himself and his daughter back home.

The deputy noted the situation had calmed so he left the seen.

Stolen motorcycle

A deputy responded to Green Acres Drive July 29 after receiving a tip a motorcycle stolen from the City of Georgetown was at a home on that road.

The deputy knocked on the door but no one responded. There was a TV on in the mobile home, so the deputy looked in the window that had a broken shade.

He could see the back end of a motorcycle that was in the kitchen.

After knocking again, the homeowner opened the door and the deputy told her he saw the motorcycle in her house.

The woman said her boyfriend bought the bike from another man about two weeks prior.

With permission, the deputy entered the home and relayed the Vehicle Identification number. It was confirmed the motorcycle was stolen from a home on Old Charleston Road in Maryville.

The man who had possession of the motorcycle said he bought it from three guys at a gas station in Maryville for $500 “with no questions asked.”

The bike was confiscated to be returned to its rightful owner.

At the time of the report no charges had been filed in the case.

Angry about policy

A woman stopped by Game Stop on North Fraser Street July 29, to get a refund for a game she had purchased.

The employee told her due to the store’s policy, he was unable to issue a refund. He said the woman became “irate” and began to yell profanities in the store.

She then stormed out of the store but moments later she returned and started kicking the door until it shattered.

She then “walked out of sight and left the area.”

The worker said the woman is a frequent customer but does not know her name.

Once the woman is identified a warrant will be issued, the report states.

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