Among reports filed with police:
200 block of Willow Pond Way: A man came home in the late afternoon, only to find a scallawag running out the back door. The guy told police he noticed the back gate was all wonky even before he went inside. Police are investigating.
3700 block of Hopkins Homes: A woman paid a security deposit on an apartment at Hopkins Homes, only to learn that the apartment in question was not for rent.
2500 block of Cherry Street: A person left $250 cash inside a vehicle. The doors were unlocked, which hardly mattered because the windows were down also. Guess what happened to the $250?
200 block of Poplar Street: A guy ran out to his vehicle to get something in the middle of the afternoon, but forgot to lock up before going back inside, he told police. The next morning he discovered someone had stolen his 9 mm pistol that was inside the vehicle, along with its nylon case and an extra ammo magazine in a leather case.
4 Conservation Way: A boat was sinking in the Brunswick River near the Sidney Lanier Bridge. Coast Guard and state Department of Natural Resources crews came to the boaters’ rescue.
A young child was found alone and wandering a city street. The parents later called to report their child as missing.
