HPD blotter

POSTED: October 23, 2012 7:00 a.m.

Oct. 5: Possession of marijuana — A Hinesville police officer conducting a foot patrol saw a man open the door of a room at the Knights Inn and walk out with his hand cupped, as if he was carrying something.

The officer asked the man what he had in his hand, and the man admitted he was carrying marijuana stems. Inside the room, a golf-ball sized lump of marijuana packaged in a clear plastic bag, a rolled marijuana cigarette and a package of rolling papers were in clear sight.

The suspect was arrested, and the marijuana and paraphernalia were collected as evidence.

Criminal trespass — A complainant said someone had spray-painted the sides, hood, roof and trunk of his vehicle, which had been parked at his apartment complex. He said he didn’t know who did it, but he recently had motioned to a man walking across the parking lot to hurry up and the man had looked at him angrily before disappearing through a set of buildings.

Oct. 6: Possession of alcohol by a minor — An officer was called to Clyde’s on M.L. King Jr. Drive after the assistant manager said she observed two young men hanging around in front of the store bothering customers.

When she told them to stop harassing patrons, one of the men walked into the store, took something from a refrigerated case and walked out. The assistant manager demanded the man return what he had taken, and he gave her a bottled alcoholic beverage. Authorities caught up to the young men and found a second bottled alcoholic beverage on one of them. The suspect was arrested for shoplifting and taken to the police department, where officers found an ID on him that did not belong to the suspect.

The suspect claimed he did not know his address. He was taken to Liberty County Jail.

Suspicious acts — Police were called to the Dollar General on E.G. Miles Parkway after employees reportedly saw a woman wearing all black walking around putting items in an orange bag.

The employees called 911 and said the woman started putting the merchandise back on the shelves when she heard them on the phone with police. When authorities arrived and confronted the woman, she said she’d come to buy a rat trap and showed the officer a trap she had purchased.

The items the woman allegedly had taken and returned could not be found.

The woman, who appeared to be intoxicated, was advised not to return to the store.
