Caller harasses patrol workers

Two employees of the Georgia State Patrol office in Grovetown told deputies Sunday they have been repeatedly harassed by an anonymous caller.

A supervisor and an employee said that they have ongoing issues with a woman caller. On Sunday, the woman called 10 times on the main State Patrol office dispatch phone line. She accused the female supervisor and female employee of committing numerous crimes in various states.

The supervisor said she’s told the caller that she could face criminal charges if she calls again, but she continues to call.

 

Vandals pour sugar in tank

An Evans man said Sunday that someone vandalized his truck.

The 54-year-old man said he parked his 2003 Chevrolet truck in the driveway at about 10:30 p.m. Saturday. He went outside just after 10 a.m. Sunday and noticed sugar all over the hood of his truck. He then realized there also was sugar in the gas tank.

The vandals also left at least nine puncture holes in the interior leather seats. Most were more than an inch wide. The center console was broken, but nothing appeared to be missing.

The man said he doesn’t know who would wantonly destroy his property and deputies found no other damaged vehicles in the area.

 

Appling man’s dog is shot

An Appling man called police Sunday after he said someone shot his dog.

The man said between 3:30 and 4 p.m. Saturday he heard shots to the south of his property and found his dog had been shot in the side. The dog survived.

The man said he made a previous report with authorities after finding a beheaded cat in his back yard.
