Allen’s name scratched off office door

An employee of the Columbia County Tax Commissioners office called authorities Friday after discovering that someone tried to scratch Kay Allen’s name off the office door.

The employee said when she arrived at work at 8 a.m., she noticed that the last four letters of Allen’s name had been scratched off the front door of the office at the government complex in Evans. The name was undamaged when she left at 5 p.m. on Thursday.

Vandals leave messages on library computers

An employee of the Euchee Creek Library said Friday that someone left threatening and vulgar messages on library computers.

The employee said she discovered messages left on the three monitors of the catalog search system. “I hate the library,” was left on the first monitor. The message on the second monitor said, “poop in a cup.” A threatening message was left on the third monitor – “bomb somewhere in here.”

Columbia County sheriff’s deputies and library staff searched the building on Euchee Creek Drive and found no suspicious items and nothing was found out of place.

Woman says husband stole her identity

An Evans woman told authorities Thursday that her estranged husband stole her identity to get money and misrepresent her online.

The 28-year-old woman said she’s been separated from her husband since April, when he moved to Alabama. Recently, he began calling and texting her, even after being told to stop.

The woman said she discovered a Facebook page in her name that she didn’t create. The page contained inappropriate posts, purportedly made by her. When confronted, the woman said her husband apologized and deleted the page. But the woman said her husband also gained access to her account on www.plentyoffish.com, an online dating site. On that site, the man posted that the woman was a prostitute.

On Thursday, the woman said she discovered that her husband used her debit card to transfer $200 from her bank account.

Woman claims money taken

An Evans woman called deputies Saturday after realizing someone stole money from her unlocked apartment as she slept.

The 24-year-old woman said she left $515 in cash for rent on the kitchen counter of her apartment on Old Evans Road when she left for a birthday party at about 11 p.m. Friday. When she left, the woman said, she locked the door and set her alarm system.

When she returned home at about 4:15 a.m. Saturday, the woman said she was tired and went straight to her bedroom and closed the door. The woman said when she woke later that morning, $220 in $20 bills was missing from her rent cash on the counter. She looked all through the apartment looking for the misplaced money. The woman said she realized that she’d left her front door unlocked and didn’t reset the alarm when she came home. Nothing else was taken or disturbed.

The 25-year-old man said on Thursday that overnight, someone filled the locks of his front and back doors with glue. He has no idea who would have done it.
