The complainant said some metal corrugated drainage pipe that belonged to the city of Hinesville was missing. An employee from Coastal Recycle Center told the complainant that the drainage pipe was sold to Coastal Recycle Center the day before.
The business was preparing a surveillance disk for the complainant to see the individuals who sold the drainage pipe. There were three separate loads of the drainage pipe, and the individuals were paid a total of $260.
Suicide attempt — Two officers responded to Berkshire Terrace to a report of an overdose.
The EMTs were on scene with a woman in the ambulance, waiting to be transported to the hospital. The EMTs knew who the woman was because there had been multiple incidents regarding suicide attempts with her. The officers asked her if she had taken 10 pills of her prescription medication in order to harm herself, and she said yes.
The woman’s mother said that her daughter is autistic and has multiple-personality disorder.
The mother wasn’t aware that the daughter had any of her medication left and said that she does this to be the center of attention.
