May 13: Disorderly conduct — Two brothers were arguing over property lines and deputies advised them they have to settle the matter in civil court. One brother said cars kept driving across his property. He said his brother runs a night club on his side of the property at Robert Hill Road but cars were using his side like a thoroughfare. He said when he complained to his brother his sibling threatened him, so he called the police.

The complainant said this is a recurring event with the offender shouting abusive language toward her. The offender said she never made any comments toward the complainant. She also said the complainant was drinking that evening.
Another neighbor was interviewed, reporting to the deputies that the offender often comes outside and yells at the complainant and other individuals in the neighborhood.

Marijuana-possession less than 1 ounce, seat-belt violation — A deputy was traveling along South Coastal Highway when he noticed a car pass him in which the passenger was not wearing a seat belt.
He stopped the vehicle, and the passenger admitted to not wearing a seat belt. The deputy asked to search the car, but the occupants said no.
The deputy released his narcotics dog to conduct a free air sniff of the exterior of the vehicle, to which the K-9 responded around the driver’s front door. The occupants were removed from the car and searched with nothing found. A clear plastic bag containing a green leafy substance was found under the front passenger seat, as well as a blunt containing that same substance.
The passenger confessed to it being his. He was given citations for both his seat belt and possession.
