April 26: Burglary — A man reported a broken window at another residence in the 2400 block of Caswell Boulevard, and the responding officer noticed there were two TVs lying on a floor but was not sure whether they were left that way by burglars or by their owner. He contacted the resident, who said she has been away from the house for about a month, and they deduced that only a $250 laptop was taken from the home.
Possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia — A Hinesville man was arrested for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia after being stopped for not wearing a seat belt.
