  • Around 3:35 a.m. on April 24 officers responded to the 800 block of East Broad Street to a male who had been beaten. He said he met three males downtown and they invited him back to their residence at that location. After they arrived, they got into a fight over food. The victim said he was punched and kicked. He sustained a gash near his ear. EMS responded and transported him to an unnamed hospital for treatment. Names of suspects were determined but contact was not made with them.


  • A Loys Farm Road residence was burglarized between 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. on April 23. Collector coin sets valued at $225 were stolen. Possible suspects were named.
  • A Lavender Road residence said that around 12 p.m. on April 23 she heard a vehicle pull in her driveway. Someone knocked on her door but she ignored it. Someone then opened the door with a key, entered and began going through cabinets and drawers. A male known to her came into the room where she was hiding. When he saw her, he ran from the residence and left in the vehicle. Nothing was stolen.


  • A 1986 Chevrolet C10 was stolen from a Cabin Creek Road residence between 11 p.m. April 23 and 6 a.m. April 24. The truck is black, with Georgia tag 9895ALC, and is valued at $8,500.
