    Mrs. BirdMan and I were leaving Wal-Mart tonight around 10 pm. As we pushed our crap up the parking aisle, a kid in over-sized clothes, maybe 16 yrs old, comes jogging up in front of us and hops into a car that had just flashed his internal lights. Immediately, the car backed out quite rapidly (too close to us, if you ask me), and drove off fast, looping around the aisle in front of the store and heading out-parking-lot. We continued to our car and hopped in, locked the doors, and were talking a moment before leaving. Next thing, we see a car on the other side of the parking lot flash his lights, and the same kid (wearing a distinctive shirt) is jogging back down the parking lot and he goes over to that car. Then after a moment, he comes jogging back up the parking lot again.

    We both noticed the kid, and it set off both of our 'weird s*** detectors'. I ended up calling 911, giving them a description of the kid, and letting them know that I suspected something weird, maybe drug dealing, might be going on. I didn't choose to hang around, since we had cold stuff in the trunk, but I suppose the Oconee county Sheriff's Office came down to check it out after I left. Think I overreacted?

    Your 'weird s*** detectors' are there for a reason.

    It would be better if drugs were legal so this type of activity wouldn't have to happen...

    I know for a fact drugs are dealt there. There's big money being made there and there's nothing SheriffOconee can do about it.

    I kinda laugh because while all this was happening, grandmas and grandpas went inside, got their meds and are now out driving the roads under the influence of a who-knows-what cocktail of prescription drugs.

    Birdman,
    I am sure you read the police blotter and know that we haul people out of WalMart for any number of offenses day and night. Something about WalMarts attract all kinds of folks, it is the vast parking area that makes people think you can't see them. Rarely is someone as observant as you are. However, last week we had a local lady take pics from her cellphone, message them to me, and we were able to get deputies there in time to take action.
    If you or anyone else has information that would be helpful, PM me, email me, or more directly email Sgt Jason Higgins at [email protected]
    Also Birdman, if you want to see some of our local wannabe gangbangers, go to youtube and search for pwood 13 or pwood13
    You might see your friendly neighborhood deliveryman on video......

    If it hadn't been for an email, I wouldn't have ever seen this as I don't check threads here regularly much anymore.

    I checked with dispatch. Deputies did arrive on scene and make contact, but there appeared to be no illegal activity at hand.

    Legacy,
    That's too bad you don't check here much. I had hoped to get some good comments from you regarding my neighborhood watch.

    Good point. I didn't know it applied to "illegal drugs" though.

    No, no, no, noooo! The Sheriff likes to transport little old ladies in the back of his brand new four door truck! Really. She may have gooten a bit "nervous".... :lol: (Bet he'll never do that again!)

    I don't know if you were being sarcastic or not, but yeah, that's actually true. There's a reason you don't see teenage thugs dealing cigarettes and beer in Wal-Mart parking lots.

    Six days, six weeks, or six months between checks and all that is found are pretty much the same couple of threads over and over again.

    If you have questions for me just email me direct or send me a link to a thread.

    Sheriff, would you and Legacy ever consider taking over Macon PD?

    Last month I'm pulling out of my driveway and stopped for an oncoming vehicle. That oncoming vehicle, an 80's "box chevy", pulled up to someone standing outside a house 2 doors down, the person handed money to the driver, the driver handed something to the person, and the old "box chevy" sped away.

    I just sighed and went about my business.

    As the wife and I were leaving regal Cinema, in Augusta, several months ago, there was a cashier standing outside and smoking a cigarette. Nothing unusual. She's on break, right? Than a guy pulls up to the curb, and they chat. Then she walks to her VW, in the parking lot, and he follows slowly behind. We had a good view of her from two rows over. She pulled a zip-lock bag from under the passenger seat, and it obviously contained many small packets containing a white substance. She gave the guy a bag or two, took money, and then went back into the theater. I called the Richmond County Sheriffs Office, and an officer responded. The crazy thing was that, even though I was willing to identify the person, and where the "drugs" were hidden, he would not do anything because he had not witnessed the transaction himself. :screwy:
