June 14: Possession of cocaine, possession of tools for the commission of a crime, possession of marijuana, cruelty to children — Deputies responded to a domestic dispute call from a resident in Denmark Trailer Park on Old Sunbury Road. When they went to investigate, a woman in the suspected residence was evasive and answered inconsistently, saying she was locked out of the home and did not have a key. While officers were speaking with the woman, a male with blood on his clothing opened the door and explained the two had argued and he cut himself. Officers entered the home and found marijuana and paraphernalia, cocaine, a trail of blood and damage to the structure consistent with violence. Both parties were arrested and taken to the Liberty County Jail. A child reportedly present for the argument was sent away with a relative prior to police arrival; DFACS was notified about the incident.
