The neighbor said he was concerned about a deep pond on the property and was able to provide deputies with images from trail cameras of Joy riding on the property.

• FRAUD: A woman on Ward Road told sheriff’s deputies she received a call Thursday from a man who said he was from Publisher’s Clearing House and that she had won $4 million.
