Officer’s Narrative:
[Please note: The following is a direct transcription from the officer’s narrative report. We do not fix any spelling or grammatical errors. Any changes made by our staff are placed inside brackets. Some errors may exist.]

On 15 May 2022, I Ofc. Thomas Owens #158, was patrolling in the area of 5328 New Jesup Hwy (Sonny’s BBQ). I was patrolling the area, conducting a business check due to the building being renovated.

While patrolling the back parking lot, I observed a male moving through the equipment and entering the open rear door of the building. Due to the time of night, there were no workers present on the job site. I immediately radioed for other units to respond to set up a perimeter and try to make contact with the subject.

Once other units arrived, myself and Ofc. Debruijn entered the rear door, giving numerous loud verbal commands for anybody inside to present themselves. Myself and Ofc. Debruijn cleared the inside of the business without locating anybody on the ground floor.

We were able to locate two doors that led into the office that were locked. Due to officers arriving on scene quickly we determined that whomever I saw was not able to leave the business, we attempted to make contact with the renovation company and the owners.

While waiting to make contact with the owners we researched the building to double check for the suspect concealing himself. The ladder to the attic was open and down and once I climbed up, I searched the attic area.

In the attic area, I located a male attempting to conceal himself next to the air conditioning unit. After locating the male, I gave loud verbal commands for him to show me his hands and to come down from the attic.

Once the male came down, Ofc. Debruijn immediately recognized him as one of the workers she made contact with at the business earlier in the shift. The male was identified as Gary Hall and when asked why he didn’t acknowledge officers, he stated he was asleep.

I checked the immediate area where Gary was concealed in the attic and located a small clear bag containing a clear crystal like substance and a clear smoking pipe. Due to my knowledge, training and experience I suspected the substance the be methamphetamine and the glass pipe as an instrument commonly used to inhale the narcotic into the body.

We immediately placed Gary under arrest for the controlled substance. After searching Gary’s belongings, I field tested the substance utilizing a Sirichie Test Kit. The test kit indicated a positive reaction for methamphetamines’.

I transported Gary to the Glynn County Detention Center and booked him for Possession of Schedule II controlled substance. The suspected Methamphetamines’ was submitted to evidence for further testing.
