Deputies took the gate lock as evidence.

On Wednesday, deputies responded to a complaint by a Hulbert woman that her medication was stolen. The woman claimed a neighbor had called asking why her Ritalin was at his house, and would not return it. The neighbor claimed in an interview with Deputy Bryan Qualls that the woman gave the pills to his wife as payment to cut the woman’s hair. In a subsequent interview, the woman denied using the pills as payment. The neighbor turned in the pills to the sheriff’s office. No arrests were made.

Deputies took a report of phone fraud from a woman Wednesday. She her personal information had been erased on her phone by another woman. She further claimed the woman had locked the phone and was using it to track the complainant’s movements.
