Sheriff Incident Reports. . .

The following incidents were reported in Chattooga County during the past couple of weeks, according to incident reports from the sheriff’s department. They include:


Deputy Josiah Hemm reported an incident about a drunk woman walking down Back Penn Road, Pennville, on June 26 around 10:25 p.m.

The Deputy stated: “I was dispatched to a pedestrian walking in the roadway showing signs of being intoxicated on Back Penn Road at the railroad tracks. Upon my arrival I noticed the pedestrian walking in and out of the roadway. I then parked my patrol car and stepped and began talking with the female, asking her as to why she was walking in the roadway, and she advised she was just walking to the store to pick up some cigarettes. I could tell at this time that she was intoxicated so I asked her (Mrs. Cynthia Perez) exactly how much she had been drinking tonight. She advised two beers, so I then had her blow in a portable Alco-Sensor. The Alco-Sensor then came back showing alcohol in her system so I then advised Mrs. Perez she was under arrest for walking the roadway while being intoxicated. Mrs. Perez was then placed under arrest and transported to the jail on charges of pedestrian under the influence.


Deputy Rebecca Farmer reported about an incident where a roommate took some items on Butterfly Lane in Summerville on June 26. The other roommate is claiming ownership of the items.

Deputy Farmer stated: “Upon my arrival, I spoke to the complainant, Raymond Thurman.  He advised that Austin Mooney had been staying with him because he had nowhere else to stay.  Mr. Thurman stated that he had left the residence to go to his mother’s and when he returned, Mr. Mooney was gone. Mr. Thurman stated that he checked his security cameras and saw Mr. Mooney taking tools and putting them into his car.  He further stated that he had made a copy of the video for me to take.  He was unable to provide a complete list of items taken but advised he would bring it to the sheriff’s office later.  Mr. Thurman also advised that he believed Mr. Mooney had gone back to Florida.


Donald Pettigrew, of Cooper Road, Summerville, said some horses were destroying his food plot that’s on 460 acres. The horses allegedly caused about $3,000 worth of damage.


Deputy Farmer was also called to a property issue on Sunday afternoon.

Deputy Farmer stated: “I was dispatched to Mississippi Avenue in reference to an issue with the property.  Upon my arrival, I spoke to the complainant, Sheila Langley.  She advised that they had bought several tracts of land on Mississippi Ave.nue. When they came to check on the land today, they found the marker stakes had been moved, trees pushed over and dirt pilled up on their property.”
