The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office reported the following incidents:
DOG BITES MAN: On Oct. 10, Deputy Joseph Chastain was dispatched to Ridgeway Church Road, Maysville, where a 25-year-old man said he was walking his dog in the yard when a dog who belonged to the next-door neighbor attacked him and his dog.
The man had puncture wounds to his arm and both legs. Animal control responded and officers found the dog at the residence, but the owner could not be found.
DISORDERLY CONDUCT: On Oct. 10, Deputy Daniel Miller was dispatched to a home on Hickory Way, Maysville, where a man had punched a hole in a wall during a dispute. Stephen Robert Bunn, 24, said the argument stemmed from harassment by his ex-girlfriend. Miller was charged with disorderly conduct and trespassing.
CURIOUS MAN: On Oct. 10, a deputy was dispatched to a home in Talmo, where a 20-year-old woman said a man named Raymond keeps showing up at her home asking questions about sex. The deputy visited the man and told him to stay away from the woman.
THREAT: On Oct. 10, a 28-year-old Commerce man reported that a Madison County threatened him, his wife and his mother-in-law as they helped a friend with a wedding. They don’t know why the man threatened them, but they do know he shot a gun at someone earlier for unknown reasons.
SHOPLIFTING: On Oct. 12, Deputy Tommy Haynes was dispatched to The Children’s Place at Tanger Outlet Mall in Commerce, where an employee said four women entered the store and stole six children’s shirts altogether worth $75.
CAR DAMAGED: On Oct. 10, Deputy Johnny Pursley was dispatched to check on a suspicious vehicle seen on New Kings Bridge Road, Nichoslon. A window and the windshield had been shattered. The deputy checked the tag number and located the name of the owner.
When contacted, the owner said he ran out of gas and parked the vehicle on the roadside. The man thinks his estranged wife may be responsible.
POODLE ATTACK: On Oct. 9, Deputy Thomas Duncan was dispatched to Nicholson for a report of a black poodle attacking a chihuahua.
The 41-year-old chihuahua owner told the poodle owner that the next time her poodle comes in his yard he was going to shoot to kill.
The deputy spoke to the poodle owners and they described the other man as a neighborhood nuisance. She said her poodle only went into the man’s yard and sniffed the chihuahua. The incident led to a verbal confrontation between the dog owners.
The deputy noted that the poodle didn’t appear to be aggressive.
FACEBOOK THREAT: On Oct. 7, a 39-year-old woman reported that her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend has been putting threatening posts on her Facebook page. The woman said she has put a block against the two on Facebook.
EXTRA PATROL COMPLAINT: On Oct. 6, a deputy was dispatched to a mobile home park on Fuller Road, where a 61-year-old man wanted to complain about the number of times he has seen deputies patrolling through the trailer park.
A few weeks ago, a shooting occurred at the trailer park and deputies have been making extra patrols since that time. The man complained that the extra patrols made him feel like the sheriff’s office considered everybody who lived there a criminal.
The deputy explained that because of the extra patrol order, there would be an increase in patrols, but this was not meant to make him feel harassed.
However, the man said he may contact someone who is “a lot higher up the totem pole than the sheriff.”
BATTERY PROBLEM: On Oct. 7, Deputy Kevin Thomas met with a 64-year-old Cane Creek Road resident, who said he loaned a car battery to a Jefferson woman a month ago and she has never returned it. On this day, she came by his home looking for her son. When he reminded her about the battery, she replied she was “gonna show him all kinds of crazy.”
