HPD blotter

POSTED: November 22, 2012 7:00 a.m.

Nov. 8: Unruly juvenile — A Hinesville resident complained that her daughter refused to go to school. The woman said the girl purposely missed the bus because she wanted her mother to take her to school and help her get her confiscated cellphone back. The girl told the responding officer that she wasn’t going to school, but she did want her mother to go get her cellphone. The officer contacted the Department of Juvenile Justice, and the girl’s caseworker was sent to the HPD, where she spoke with the girl, who then was released back to her mother’s custody.

Suspicious acts — An HPD officer observed a man walking in front of the former Imprint Warehouse building carrying two battery backup surge protectors. The man said he got the items from inside the vacant business because a district manager from his place of employment, Little Caesar’s Pizza, had told the man about the items and gave him permission to take them. The man told the officer that the building at one time had been a church that his district manager was affiliated with and the district manager claimed ownership of the items.

The officer checked with HPD and found that the vacant buildings were the property of the city of Hinesville. The man was made to return the items to the building and was advised not to return.

Theft by taking — The owner of a West Gen. Screven Way business said she closed her store at about 5 p.m. and locked $150 in the register before securing the doors. When she returned the next day, she said she noticed the register key missing. The register appeared to be jammed, and the woman had difficulty opening it. She noticed pry marks and the $150 was missing. There was no evidence of forced entry into the store. No video surveillance was available.
