Nov. 16: Criminal trespass, fraud (selling food stamps), disorderly conduct — An officer responded to a disturbance at South Georgia Bank and made contact with a woman, who said she was going to drive her boss and co-workers to buy food stamps from a man who was selling them. When the complainant met the man selling food stamps, he allegedly jumped into her car and told her to drive away from another woman, who began to cuss at them and repeatedly beat her hands against the complainant’s car.

The complainant reportedly drove away, but the other woman followed her to the bank and began to make a scene.
The event escalated, with the two women on the verge of a fight.

When questioned by officers, the man said the food stamps were his and that no transaction had occurred.

The other woman said the man was her boyfriend and she was upset to see him riding around with the complainant after the woman had reportedly bought the man food with her money.

The case will was handed to DFCS to investigate food stamp fraud.

Possession of alcohol by a minor — While patrolling mobile homes on Pipkin Road, an officer became suspicious about an evasive young man. Because the man was on private property, the officer left him alone and waited at a nearby gas station. The officer saw the same man again at the gas station, this time acting suspiciously. The officer recognized the man as an 18-year-old who had been on probation. He spoke to the man with consent and ran a check for possible warrants and found a theft by receiving warrant. The man was taken into custody, and the officer smelled alcohol on his breath once he was placed in the vehicle. The suspect was cited for possession of alcohol by a minor and given a court date and released on $411 bond.

Criminal trespass — An officer was dispatched to Jennifer’s Big Apple in reference to a fight between two men. Another officer reported that one of the men said the other man was flirting with his wife, and he asked the man what he said to her. The supposed flirt reportedly punched the husband in the face. Both men were given citations for disorderly conduct. An employee at the bar said a sign was broken during the altercation.
