▲ HIGH COTTON DRIVE – Complainant said that after closing her house she was still paying for a home alarm system. She said she contacted the new owner of the house, who told her he would not remove the system. After contacting the new owner, he said he had given the complainant a week and a half to remove everything she had from the house before starting to paint the whole house. He said that after that time he painted the house. He said that if the Complainant wanted to pay to remove the alarm system and locks and replace the paint, he would allow it. She refused. Both parties have been informed of the appeals before a civil court.

After contacting the woman and the man at the East Georgia Regional Medical Center, the man said the woman had been injured while riding a go-kart and denied laying hands on her. The woman said that at some point during an argument about their financial situation, the man hit her. After further discussions, she said she did not want to press charges. She was told about possible remedies to help her.

▲ BARN MOBILE HOME PARK – Complainant said a group of youths were walking past his residence and one of them picked up a rock and threw it at one of his windows, smashing it.

As they were leaving, the deputies came across a group of miners and the miner who threw the rock was identified by the shirt he was wearing. He admitted throwing the stone and the plaintiff agreed not to press charges if the miner and his guardian paid to fix the window.
