Couple's cell service hacked

Posted: May 6, 2014 - 11:10pm

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

Couple’s cell service hacked

An Evans man told authorities Thursday that someone hijacked his cellphone number.

The 67-year-old man said someone got a hold of his personal information and used it to steal his cellphone service. He said that cellphones belonging to him and his wife suddenly lost all service. When he went to a local Verizon store, the man said he learned that someone disconnected his cellphone numbers and had them transferred to two iPhones at a Target in Davies, Fla., using his personal information.

The man said he was able to get the issue resolved at Verizon, but does wish to prosecute whoever stole his information.

Woman finds ex-husband’s dentures

A Grovetown woman called police Friday evening after discovering what she believes is her estranged husband’s dental partial.

The 55-year-old woman said she returned home at about 10:15 p.m. and found a false teeth partial under the carport. She believes the partial belongs to her estranged husband.

The woman said she doesn’t remember seeing the partial there when she left at about 7 p.m., but can’t be positive it hasn’t been there for a long time. She has a restraining order against her husband.

Soldier’s ID stolen to buy jewelry

An Evans soldier told deputies Saturday that someone used his personal information to open a credit account at a jewelry store.

The 32-year-old soldier said he received a $7,479.11 bill from Kay’s Jewelers. He said he didn’t apply for a Kay’s credit card or make any purchases at a Kay’s store. The bill showed an April 26 transaction at a Kay’s store in Cedar Park, Texas. The soldier said he contacted Kay’s and was given the contact information for a Secret Service agent who the soldier was told is handling similar cases against active military members.

Vandal damages car

A Harlem woman said Sunday that someone damaged the inside and outside of her car.

The 50-year-old woman said her car was parked in the driveway of her home between 4:30 p.m. Friday and noon on Saturday. During that time, someone keyed both side of the vehicle. A derogatory word was carved into the driver’s seat.

Sweet son

Still believe that:

street addresses with only the block noted should be included in these reports. It would be helpful for those living on the street where the damage to a vehicle occurred in being vigilant in their efforts to identify the perpetrator. It might even prevent another incident from occurring.

Consider it!
