HPD blotter

POSTED: October 18, 2012 8:00 a.m.

Sept. 25: Counterfeit bills passed — Hinesville police officers responded to two reports of counterfeit money Sept. 21. A cashier at a Parker’s reported receiving a $100 bill from a man. The man had attempted to pay for some items with the fake bill.
When she marked the bill, she said it turned black, indicating it was counterfeit. She told the suspect it was counterfeit, and she mistakenly returned the fake money.

She said it was company policy to keep counterfeit bills to report to police. The suspect left the store in an unidentified vehicle, she said.

Also on Sept. 21, as a Walmart employee was counting cash in her office, she realized one of the bills felt different than the others. She checked the serial numbers against a list of other counterfeit bills the store had received and identified the money as fake.

Burglary, first degree, forced entry —A Maple Drive resident called Hinesville Police Department on Sept. 23 to report a break-in and burglary at his home. The man reported that he and his family had left home around 5:30 p.m. Sept. 21 and returned around 6 p.m. Sept. 23.

He said found the sliding back door open and immediately noticed his $600 laptop was missing, then he realized a lockbox containing $20,000 in cash also was missing.

The man said he locked all the doors before he left. He also said only members of his family knew about the lockbox filled with money, and they were all with him on the family trip.

While the investigating officer was looking around the home, the man then realized half a case of beer and several bottles of liquor also were missing.

Theft by shoplifting — A 47-year-old Midway resident was arrested by Hinesville police Sept. 24 after a call from a Walmart employee that a man had attempted to leave the store without paying for a grocery cart containing 15 items, which totaled $166.55.

After the man was arrested and booked at HPD, he was transported to the Liberty County Jail.

Sept. 26

Police reported the woman had visible bruising on her neck and back. When the officer asked for her boyfriend’s contact information, the woman claimed her cell phone was dead and she needed time to consider her actions.
