Joy was charged after a neighbor reported that Joy had been riding a four-wheel vehicle on his property despite being told he could not. 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. The woman hung up after the man told her the money was coming from Puerto Rico and she’d have to pay $1,050 in shipping costs. Later in the evening, a woman called to confirm the contest but the woman hung up again. She told deputies the two people wanted her to call a 1-866 number.
