The following accounts were taken from Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident reports:
Golf cars stolen from business
An employee of Club Car called authorities Tuesday after discovering that several golf cars missing from the lot in Martinez had turned up in Statesboro, Ga.
The employee said he got a call from a vendor to check out a suspicious golf car store in Statesboro. The employee said he spoke to the store owner, who said a customer brought a new golf car into the store for repairs.
When he checked the inventory, the employee discovered the golf car was supposed to be on the company lot in Martinez. The Statesboro store owner said the same customer also ordered parts of another golf car that the employee said also should be on the Club Car lot.
The employee said he contacted the Bulloch County authorities to recover the car at the Statesboro store, but the location of the other one wasn’t known.

Woman home when intruder bangs on door
A Martinez woman was home Tuesday afternoon when she said someone tried to kick in her door.
The 67-year-old woman said she was in her den watching TV at about 3:10 p.m. when she heard someone knocking on the back door. As she went to the door, the knocking turned to loud banging. As the woman walked into the kitchen, she said she saw a man facing away from the door kicking backward at the bottom of it.
The woman yelled and the man ran away. She didn’t see if he went out the gate or jumped the fence.
The door had dirt smudges on it and a bulge where it had been kicked. The deadbolt held and the door never opened.
