The following accounts were taken from Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident reports:

Man’s truck vandalized with condiment

An Evans man told deputies Wednesday that someone poured barbecue sauce on his truck.

The 21-year-old man said he walked outside and found “your next’ written in barbecue sauce on his truck.

The man asked several neighbors about the incident and they told him their vehicles were egged recently, but didn’t know who was doing the vandalism.

Man’s info
used to spend his money

A Martinez man called police Tuesday stating he gave out his personal information to someone who used it to spend his money.

The 67-year-old man said he got a call from a blocked number on July 10 from someone claiming to be a representative from a software company.

The caller said he needed the man’s Social Security number and credit card number to upgrade the man’s computer anti-virus software.

The man provided the information to the caller, who then hung up.

The man said he recently found two unauthorized transactions on his Discover card statement, one for $89 and another for $95.

Rash of car break-ins near Interstate 20

Several people reported car break-ins off Belair Road near Interstate 20 Tuesday.

Two residents of Valleybrook Drive just off Park West Drive said that the previous night someone entered three vehicles parked in the driveway of their homes.

Two were unlocked and a third was locked but had the windows down. A handgun was stolen from an unlocked truck.

Two guests at the Holiday Inn at 441 Park West Drive told deputies that someone broke back windows of their trucks, which were parked in a side lot overnight.

A backpack was taken from one and nothing was stolen from the other.
