Family violence warrants have been issued for a man who allegedly grabbed and hit his girlfriend during an argument on Madison Oaks Drive recently.
Officer Andrew Wilkes went to a home on Scogin Road to meet with the woman, who told him that her boyfriend, with whom she has a child, stole her 2011 Chevrolet Impala. She said he kicked the right front fender and then jumped on the hood to keep her from leaving the Madison Oaks Drive residence. She said he also grabbed her car keys and then started hitting her. When she told him she was going to call 9-1-1, he reportedly got in her car and left. While she was waiting on a friend to pick her up, she said he returned with her vehicle.
Other incident on file at the sheriff’s office last week included:
•A four-wheeler was stolen from a residence on Cleghorne Road last week.
•A woman on Creekwood Drive reported that she had been receiving several harassing phone calls from different people. She was explained the warrant process.
•Officers were called to Jackson EMC on Hwy. 106 South last week following a 3 a.m. alarm call. Due to recent thefts there, officer Jason Luke requested all available units to be en route. Surveillance footage of the suspect showed a suspect wearing white tennis shoes, black pants, a black jacket, and a black full-faced hood, who was observed taking numerous items of copper wire from several Jackson EMC trucks. As an officer arrived on scene, viewers could see his patrol car headlights on camera and see the suspect flee off camera. It is believed the suspect ran behind the vehicle bays and under a fence, according to the report.
Several cloth bags were also located at the scene.
•A man on Old Fork Cemetery Road reported that a man he has had trouble with in the past pulled a Carlton VFD fire truck in front of his chicken houses and blew an air horn to scare the chickens. Officer Andrew Wilkes advised the man to notify the Carlton fire chief and explained the warrant process to him.
•Officer Joshua Smith was called to Amberly Drive last week regarding aggressive dogs.
Once there he saw two dogs in the yard of the listed address who began to circle his patrol car. One was described as white/gray female pit bull and the other was a white shaggy-haired pit bull/schnauzer mixed dog wearing a choke collar.
They growled at him when he got out of the car but went to a home across the road when he spoke to them.
The complainant said she walked across the street from the neighbor’s house when she saw the two dogs coming towards her and that one began to growl at her.
She said the owner was at another house nearby.
When Smith crossed the road in an attempt to talk to the owner, both dogs began to growl and circle him. A woman, later identified as the owner of the shaggy dog, came out of the house and told Smith the dog would not bite, though they continued to circle him and growling.
As the woman walked toward him, the shaggy dog began to bite Smith on the ankle and tear his pants. The dog was tasered. The dogs were later collected by animal control officers after a release was signed by the owner.
•A woman on Neese Commerce Road reported that someone stole coins that she was saving for her youngest grandchildren. She said she put new quarters, dimes and nickels in an old water container for them and that the last time she saw the jar was in late November and was not sure when it went missing. She said there was about a $1,000 worth of coins in the container.
•A woman on Pine Valley Farm Road said she believes a woman who stayed with her for a short time took her Xanax prescription. She said she and the woman had argued earlier and that she was no longer staying there. Officer Andrew Wilkes noted there were pry marks on the door.
