HPD blotter

POSTED: October 2, 2012 7:00 a.m.

Sept. 9: Counterfeit money — A Walmart manager told police a woman had attempted to pay for her purchases with a $50 counterfeit bill. When questioned, the woman said she received the bill as payment from her place of employment, a beauty salon. The woman agreed to stay until police arrived. The woman told police the bill was used by a woman who bought a few bags of hair weave from the salon where she works. The $50 counterfeit bill was taken by the HPD officer to be placed into evidence.

Sept. 11: Suspicious acts — A Hinesville woman told police her 11-year-old daughter had been using her cell phone to contact adult males. The woman believed her daughter had sent photos of herself to the men and the men had reciprocated with photos of their own. The woman also was concerned her daughter had given the men her home address. The responding officer took possession of the 11-year-old’s cell phone even though the woman said she thought her daughter had deleted the incriminating information. The officer gave the phone to a sheriff’s office deputy, who was able to use a program to recover some of the information from the phone. A letter was sent to phone-service provider requesting that the information be preserved.

Sept. 12: DFACS referral — An officer was dispatched to a Saunders Avenue residence regarding some reportedly unattended juveniles. The officer found two children with a maintenance crew. The crew members told the officer that the children’s mother left shortly after they arrived. She said she’d return in a minute. The children’s grandmother was called to the scene. She was unaware the children had been left alone. When the children’s mother returned, she told the officer she had to go pay a bill and the friend who had given her a ride drove a vehicle that could seat only two people. She said it was the first time she left her children home alone. The officer told the women a DFACS referral would be filed over the incident.
