Her husband told the deputy that they would not answer questions. When the deputy asked the patient what happened, she said she did not know.

July 29
Burglary — There was a burglary on East Oglethorpe Highway in Hinesville. The complainant said she left for work around 11 p.m. and returned home in the morning to find her side door kicked open.

July 30
Assist other agency — Dispatch told a Liberty County deputy about a chase taking place in Bryan County that seemed to be heading into Liberty County. Once the car passed the deputy, he followed behind and recorded the vehicle going 110 mph. It looked like two people were in the car.
Eventually, McIntosh County was dispatched to help. Several attempts were made to stop the car, but none worked until they reached Glynn County.

He also saw the car passenger throw out about four gallon-sized bags of marijuana from the sunroof.
The two suspects then tried fleeing on foot but eventually were caught.

The deputy told the husband not to damage any of the wife’s property that was left at the house.

Suspicious activity — A possible burglary took place on Turtle Lane in Hinesville after a woman came home to find her dogs extremely excited and in separate rooms, which was not how she left them.
