Sept. 16: Driving while license suspended, third offense, no insurance — A deputy on patrol ran the plates on a Hyundai he was traveling behind and found the vehicle’s registration was suspended and the driver had no valid insurance. The deputy stopped the vehicle and asked the driver for his license, but the driver told him it was suspended. He also said he’d canceled his insurance. The driver was arrested, taken to jail and given citations and a court date. The Hyundai was towed.
Illegal possession of a controlled substance — A deputy responded to a call at an Old Sunbury Road convenience store about three men in a car possibly using narcotics. The car owner consented to a search of the car, but when the deputy asked the three occupants to exit the vehicle so he could search it, he noticed one man throw something beneath the car. The deputy called for backup and found a blunt beneath the car. The deputies contacted a narcotics officer and handed the investigation over. A field test determined the blunt contained Spice. Two of the vehicle occupants were taken to jail.
Harassing phone calls — A Midway woman told a deputy that the man she used to live with was sending her unwanted text messages and voicemails. She said he also threatens her with physical violence and comes by her home frequently and threatens her neighbors. The complainant was given a case number and briefed on procedures for obtaining a temporary protection order.
Theft by taking, felony — A Midway man called authorities to report that 58 of his 60 hydrocodone pills were missing. The man said he’d been gone all day, and the only other person home was his adult son. The man’s wife said their son has a history of abusing pain medication, and she confirmed the complainant’s statement that their son was home alone all day. The complainant’s wife said she confronted their son about the missing medication, but he denied taking it. The son was not home when the deputy was called to the residence. The couple was given a case number.
