Teen reports man sought nude photos
An 18-year-old Evans woman told deputies that someone she doesn’t know had contacted her through Facebook and asked her to provide nude photos of herself.
The woman said after she received several messages she advised the person to leave her alone.
The person also requested nude photos of her from her boyfriend through Facebook and claimed to have paid $50 to him for a photo of her that appeared to show her topless.
The stranger sent a copy of the topless photo to her via Facebook.
The woman said that neither she nor her boyfriend gave the man any photos.
She said the photo the stranger sent her was taken about three years ago and had been altered to make her appear to be partially nude.
Money taken from man’s bank account
A Martinez woman reported Monday that someone had obtained access to her husband’s checking account and had withdrawn more than $5,000 without their knowledge. The woman said a bank employee told her all the transactions had taken place in August and September from the same bank branch. She said the bank had started an investigation and had closed the account to prevent any further withdrawals.
Man reports medication was taken from mailbox
A Grovetown man told police that someone had recently stolen prescription medication from his mail box. The 64-year-old man told deputies that he contacted the Veterans Administration hospital Mobnday about his prescription and was told the package was delivered to his Wrightsboro Road address on Dec. 13.
The postal service confirmed the delivery with the package tracking number. The man said he wishes to prosecute whoever took his medication.
