MEN ARRESTED: On Aug. 24, a deputy was dispatched to a home on Moreland Drive, Watkinsville, for a reported fight.

PINE STRAW PROBLEM: On Aug. 25, a Statham area man reported he had a business agreement for another man to have pine straw delivered and spread at his home. The man arrived and did half the yard work, but said he needed more materials and asked for the full payment. The Statham man gave him the money, but the man never returned to complete the job.

MAN CHARGED: On Aug. 26, deputies were dispatched to an apartment in Athens Ridge Apartments off Old Macon Highway, where a woman reported her boyfriend arrived and kicked in her bedroom door. The woman said she then locked herself in the bathroom and the man broke the door and pushed her into the bath tub. The man also punched a hole in the wall, and threw items and pulled out dresser drawers. During the violent spree, a man came in and a fight ensued between him and the boyfriend, with the boyfriend being injured during the fight. The man, who had come to help, had left when deputies arrived and has not been identified. However, when deputies arrived, the boyfriend fled through the backdoor, but was captured and placed in handcuffs. Hunter Dwayne Wingfield, 21, of Canton was arrested on charges of trespassing and obstruction. He was also banned from going back to the womans apartment for two years. However, later that day, Wingfield returned to the apartment and tried to get inside. The woman recorded Wingfield on her phone and when deputies arrived, they found the suspect at the swimming pool. He denied returning to the victims apartment, but based on the video, Wingfield was again arrested and charged with trespassing for violating the order.

METH SEIZED: On Aug. 26, a deputy was patrolling through the Walmart parking lot and noticed some unusual behavior by a man who was walking around a Ford pickup. The man would get in and out of the vehicle and turn the lights on and off. The deputy ran the license plate and discovered the pickup did not have valid insurance and the tag belonged on another vehicle. The man then told the officer his cousin drove him to the location and left him there with the truck. A computer check was made and the deputy learned that Jeremy Steven Marlowe, 46, of Valley Shoals Lane, Bishop, was wanted on a warrant out of Cobb County. Marlowe was arrested and as the officer frisked him, he found a case with a bag of methamphetamine inside. Marlowe was then charged with possession.

MISSING MONEY: On Aug. 26, a deputy was dispatched to the Bogart Library, where a volunteer for the Friends of the Bogart Library Book Store reported money missing from the cash box. The volunteer said that two weeks ago there was $36 in the box and on this day there should be $42. However, she found only a dollar bill and four quarters when she opened the box.
