A Statham man called the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office to report that his “baby momma” was in a dispute with his “baby momma’s mother” over money.
The man said his “baby momma” was at work and would call later to report the theft.
The deputy advised that the dispute was a civil matter and would have to be settled in Magistrate Court.
Eggs, feces thrown at residence
A deputy was dispatched to an Arrowhatchee Drive residence after eggs and feces were thrown at a house.
The homeowner said he did not know what time the egging occurred, but wanted a report because several other people in his neighborhood had also been victimized by the egg and feces throwing vandals.
There are no suspects at this time.
Man reports suspicious passing
A man called the Sheriff’s Office after being passed by a vehicle on Carl Cedar Hill Road.
The man said he thought it was suspicious that a vehicle would pass him so close to his residence.
The man could not provide a make, model or color for the suspect vehicle, but demanded a report in case the suspicious passing became an “ongoing thing.”
Deputy charged by at-large dogs
A deputy repeatedly requested assistance from animal control after discovering a pack of aggressive dogs at a Hwy. 211 residence.
The deputy was dispatched to Emmanuel Church after a pack of dogs chased some children at the church. The pastor attempted to run the dogs off and said he thought they belonged to the person who lived next door to the church.
The deputy went to the neighboring property and noticed several large dogs in the driveway. As soon as the deputy exited his patrol car, the dogs charged.
The deputy wrote, “I discharged my pepper spray on the dogs and got back inside my vehicle. I then began to blow the horn hoping someone was at home.”
No one responded to the deputy’s honks and he subsequently left to respond to another call. The deputy asked that animal control be enroute to deal with the at-large dogs.
Later that shift, the deputy checked with dispatch to see if animal control had rounded up the canines. Dispatch advised that animal control went to the church and could not locate the dogs. The deputy explained that the dogs were at the house next door and asked that animal control respond. The deputy checked back later and learned that animal control had still not gone to the residence.
At that point, the deputy requested that animal control meet him at the residence. Approximately 45 minutes later, animal control arrived and collected the dogs.
Wild hog shot point blank
A deputy was dispatched to a Bridge Crest Drive residence after a report of shots fired.
When the deputy arrived, he met with the homeowner who advised that his two juvenile nephews walked outside and were “confronted” by three hogs on the patio.
When the largest hog began snorting at them, the homeowner said he took his rifle, pressed it against the hog’s head and shot it.
The man said that he is a wildlife biologist for a private company and is aware of the dangers posed by wild hogs.
The deputy contacted the Department of Natural Resources on the homeowner’s behalf. A DNR representative advised that if the hog was on the property and acting aggressively, then it was ok to “dispose of it in that manner.”
The homeowner said he would dispose of the hog the next morning.
No further action was taken.
