Everything but the porn
An officer was dispatched to Fernwood Drive after a woman called to say someone had left an X-rated video under her daughters’ window. The woman said she runs a foster home and has several girls of different ages living at the residence, ages 11, 12 and 15.
None of the girls had seen anyone leaving the videos, but the woman said one foster child who recently moved out always complained about a man who constantly made offensive comments to her. One of the other children in the house also reported that the man had made an offensive comment to her.
The woman said the girls woke up several mornings and spotted the man standing at the rear of the residence at the fence. The officer went to the man’s house, directly behind the woman’s. The officer asked the man if he or his family had seen suspicious persons in the area. The man said he hadn’t seen anyone suspicious, but has seen young men in the area.
When the officer asked him about being seen standing behind the victims’ house, he said he puts the trash cans back in the neighbor’s yard after the trash is picked up in order to keep the neighbors from being fined by the city.
The officer logged seven X-rated videos into evidence: Golden High Heels, Red on Top and Wet all Over, Young and White, Ultimate First (Adam and Eve), Beautiful Starlets Who Crave Sex, Adventures of Footman and Lick My Panties. The movies appeared to have been sitting in the weather for a period of time. Each had a price of $19.95 written on them.
• A woman walking her dog about 1 a.m. in the Merritt Apartments parking lot at Godley Station in Pooler reported a small child walking alone in the complex. She reportedly tried to identify the child but was unsuccessful. The reported toddler, ranging in age 2-3, ran off as the woman approached. The child was described as a White or Hispanic male with curly hair, wearing a diaper and white pullover shirt.
As a precaution, Savannah-Chatham Police began canvassing the complex at 1515 Benton Boulevard and areas nearby, although no missing child reports had been filed. K-9s were summoned as police and emergency rescue officials went door-to-door in the complex with no results. The search ended about 7 a.m. Anyone coming in contact with a lost child is urged to call 651-6742.
• A routine traffic stop ended with a known drug trafficker behind bars. Kevin Tyrone Sullivan, 28, a convicted felon, was arrested shortly after 3 a.m. on April 30. Officer Kevin Jarriel stopped Sullivan on Ogeechee Road for driving without headlights. Sullivan appeared to be impaired during questioning and couldn’t produce a driver’s license. He was arrested for driving under the influence. The officer tried to put him in the back of a patrol car, but Sullivan became combative and ran. He managed to get about 5 feet away before Jarriel was able to subdue him.
When Sullivan’s car was searched, Jarriel found more than 17 grams of heroin, 4 grams of crack and powdered cocaine and several prescription painkillers. He was charged with trafficking in heroin, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, obstruction and DUI. He was denied bond in Recorder’s court on May 3
• One of two men who attacked an elderly woman and stole her purse April 30 outside a Southside department store was arrested just moments after he fled the scene. The victim, who is 64, sustained minor bruises and refused medical treatment. She was getting into her car after leaving Oglethorpe Mall after 2:30 p.m. when she was approached by the suspects.
Police say John Douglas Thompson Jr., 19, pushed the woman to the ground and snatched her purse. He jumped in a silver Buick with tinted windows and tape over the taillight. The car sped out of the parking lot and headed north on Hodgson Memorial.
Officers spotted the car and stopped it on Stephenson Avenue. Thompson, the passenger, jumped out of the car, still clutching the woman’s purse, and ran, while the driver sped off. Officers chased Thompson on foot and caught him just north of Stephenson Avenue. He was charged with robbery by force, and additional charges are pending.
Police are searching for the Buick, Georgia tag number AIF4037. Anyone with information is asked to call 651-6994 or call CrimeStoppers at 234-2020. ç
