Hinesville Police Department blotters for June 20

May 28: Suspicious person — An officer was dispatched to Timber Ridge Trail for an anonymous complaint of a young man hanging around the area.
The officer made contact with the young man, who seemed slow and not sure of his answers. He said he was there to watch the roofing crew but didn’t know his home address, telephone number or his parents’ names. He said he was 17. The young man gave him an address he thought he lived at, but it turned out that he doesn’t.
An officer got information from Bradwell Institute, where the young man attended school last year. The officer drove the young man to his house and talked with his mother. She said she reported him missing to the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office, but was told they couldn’t do anything because of his age. The officer told the mother that he had concerns about the young man’s mental well-being, but the mother said that he is only slow in reading because he chooses not to do his schoolwork. Dispatch reported that the young man had left his residence without permission seven times this year.
Dispatch also reported that the young man left again 30 minutes after the officer left the residence.

Disorderly conduct, simple battery — An officer went to Stewart Way Apartments because of a disorderly person. The complainant said a man came to his apartment and was loud. He would not leave when asked by the complainant and also smelled of alcohol. He became louder when the complainant again told him to leave. He was afraid the man would wake his neighbors, so he slapped him in the back of the head and said “just go.”
The complainant and the man befriended each other after the man began having marital problems, and the complainant even let the man live in his apartment. He moved out once he and his wife worked things out.
The complainant said the man is in love with him and keeps coming back to his apartment.
The complainant wants a restraining order on the man.
