Armed robbery at birthday party
Hinesville PD blotters for Jan. 15

Reports recently filed a the Hinesville Police Department include:

Dec. 13
Burglary — A woman called HPD in reference to a burglary at her Tupelo Trail residence. She said that she returned to her home to find her front door open, and that she had secured the door with the deadbolt when she had left earlier in the day. The front window to her apartment does not lock, and it was determined that the burglar entered through the window.
She reported two TVs, a jewelry box, a smart phone, a guitar and various clothing items as missing.

Attempted armed robbery — HPD responded to a residence on Jeanette Circle in response to an attempted armed robbery. The complainants said they were hosting a birthday party for a child when a group of uninvited men showed up. The complainants said that the group began attacking one of the party guests outside, and one group member brandished a firearm. The guest who was being attacked broke away, ran up the street and jumped over a fence into a neighbor’s backyard.
Upon speaking with the attacked guest, officers learned that the group member with the gun had told him to “get on the ground” and “give up the money.” Other party guests reported items missing, as chaperones had been distracted in dealing with the uninvited males.
Dec. 16
Burglary, forced entry — Officers responded to a report of burglary at a Glenn Bryant Road residence. The complainant said he had secured his residence before leaving for work the night before, and that when he returned home the next morning, his TV was missing from his living room. He said there were leaves on the couch, and it appeared that a living room window had been opened.

Attempted armed robbery — A woman who was using a GeoVista drive-through ATM on West Oglethorpe Highway said she watched a man walk up behind her car and approach her window. She said the man pointed a gun at her and told her to give him the money. She said she already had completed her transaction and accelerated the vehicle away from the ATM without giving the suspect any money.
She said she saw the suspect run across Oglethorpe Highway toward Link Street.
