The following accounts were taken from Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident reports:
Jenson’s Wymberly clubhouse burglarized
The manager of a senior living community in Martinez said early Thursday that someone kicked in the door to the community center overnight.
The manager of Jenson’s Wymberly said he arrived at work at about 6:30 p.m. and found the back door of the building unlocked. Walking through the building, he found a vase broken in the hallway. He thought it was broken accidentally and picked part of it up.
When the janitor arrived, she discovered the front door of the building kicked open. She told the manager and they later discovered even more damage to the building.
The burglar damaged two doors, some walls and a refrigerator.
Deputies found blood on the walls of the community center.
Men fight over discovered tryst
A Martinez man told deputies late Saturday that a married man he caught in a tryst had attacked him.
The 30-year-old man said he was hosting a surprise party for his wife Saturday evening and noticed a man and woman missing from the party. The man found the couple behind a shed. He said the woman was lying with her skirt up to her waist and the man, fully clothed, was kneeling in front of her.
The host said he took the man home because a married man shouldn’t be doing that. But the man returned a short time later and yelled and attacked the party host. He punched the host until two other party-goers pulled him off. He then left the house.
The man told deputies he was urinating behind the shed when the woman, who was extremely intoxicated, fell down. He was helping her up when the host found them. He said he came back to the home to see if the host and others wanted to go to the store with him. He said the host and another man attacked him.
Everyone involved said they’d been drinking.
Insulation taken from work site
A contractor called authorities Thursday after discovering someone had stolen more than $10,000 worth of materials from a construction site.
The employee of Arango Insulation said he arrived at the construction site of Lullwater at Riverwood Apartments the previous afternoon and found several bags of insulation missing from inside the building. The employee said the insulation, worth $14,000, was inside 16 Franklin Ridge, the apartment building he was working in, on July 3. The building was not secure, though the construction site is fenced and is locked after work hours.
The employee wasn’t able to determine the value of the different types of insulation stolen, but company management confirmed it to be worth at least $14,000.
A Grovetown woman told deputies Thursday that someone damaged her four-wheeler.
The 50-year-old woman said her husband noticed a pick axe stuck in the rear tire of their Yamaha four-wheeler at about noon.
The pick ax is normally stored behind a shed, she said.
