Meth lab suspect released after posting her bond
An Evans woman charged with operating a methamphetamine lab in her Riverwood Plantation home was released on bond last week.
Jamie Cloud Brosious, 37, of the 100 block of Pond View Drive, was released from the Columbia County Detention Center on Feb. 6 after posting a $50,000 bond, jail personnel said. She had been arrested Jan. 2 on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, manufacturing methamphetamine in the presence of children and possession of methamphetamine and a Schedule III drug.
Brosious was allowed to be released on bond only after a slot became available at a Lavonia, Ga., rehabilitation facility, where she must spend eight weeks before moving for at least a year into a halfway house, according to Superior Court Judge Duncan Wheale's order.
Bond was denied for two others arrested in connection with the incident: Wayne Scott Fernandez, 43, of the 3100 block of Scenic Drive in Augusta, and Cheree Renee Granade, 29, of the 100 block of Kaschwina Court in Grovetown. They were charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and were being held without bond, according to jail personnel.
The following accounts were taken from reports filed with the Columbia County Sheriff's Office.
Stolen car found crashed
An Evans man called deputies Saturday to report that someone had stolen his running car.
The 26-year-old man said his 2001 Honda Civic was parked in front of his home between 8 and 8:15 p.m. He started it with a remote starter, went outside and realized it was gone.
The car was found up the street in a neighbor's yard, where it had been crashed into a small tree.
Man reports threats
A Harlem man said he was harassed and threatened by his stepson's friend, who wanted money.
The 68-year-old Army retiree told deputies someone claiming to be his stepsons's friend called at about 12:30 p.m. asking for money. The man said he asked the caller not to call again.
He told deputies he received another call from the same man at about 5:30 p.m., when the caller cursed at him, threatened to kill him and said he'd be coming over soon to do it. At 7:30 p.m., someone he believed was the caller came to his home, but left when the resident said he was calling police.
Man's identity stolen
A Grovetown man called deputies Friday to report someone had used his personal information at two Cartersville, Ga., medical centers.
The 47-year-old man said that about three months ago, he received a bill from Cartersville Surgical Associates. The bill had the correct address, but another man's name, so the man returned it to the sender.
A few weeks later, the man received another bill from the same company. He told deputies he called the company and found out someone had used his address, date of birth and Social Security number to obtain services from the surgical center.
