The Madison County Sheriff’s Office reported the following incidents:
THEFT: On Sept. 15, Deputy Adam Arnold was dispatched to a home on New Haven Church Road, where a man reported someone stole his 2005 Honda CRFX 250 motorcycle. The motorcycle was parked in the carport.
YARD THEFTS: On Sept. 16, several people reported objects stolen from their yards. A woman on Hannah Heights Trail reported the theft of two metal chairs and a scarecrow. Another resident on the street reported the theft of a ceramic bird bath, while a third person reported the theft of a concrete bulldog that was dressed like a deputy sheriff.
GUN STOLEN: On Sept. 17, Deputy Christopher Haston was dispatched to meet with a resident of Wesley Chapel Road, who reported the theft of .25-caliber Raven Arms pistol. The man’s estranged wife’s denied taking the gun after Haston contacted her as a possible suspect.
WALLET FOUND: On Sept. 18, Deputy Bradley Osborne went to a home on Cheek Pulliam Road, where a woman said she found a wallet on her porch. She looked inside and found the identification for a man who lived on a nearby road. She went to the man’s house and the man said it was his wallet and it must have fallen off his car while he was washing it. The man was stuttering like he was nervous and the woman noticed that the man’s car was dirty like it had not been washed. The woman thinks it odd that the man’s wallet was on her porch.
MAN CAUGHT: On Sept. 19, Deputy Brandon Hanley drove to a home on Billy Dillard Road to serve a warrant from Clarke County on William J. Adams. When the officer arrived at the home, he saw the 48-year-old Adams standing next to a vehicle in the driveway. Upon seeing the officer, Adams took off running toward a field. Deputies chased him about 50 yards before they caught up to him and placed him on the ground. Adams was also charged with obstruction.
