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

Family robbed Christmas Eve

A Grovetown man called authorities on Christmas Eve after discovering someone had broken into his home and stolen gifts.

The 31-year-old man said someone kicked in the front door of his home between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. The burglar stole a 1911 CAP .45-caliber handgun, a Playstation 4, an electric guitar and all of the family’s Christmas gifts from under the Christmas tree.

A neighbor told the man she’d seen a vehicle leaving his home that day.

 

Holiday box filled with urine

An Evans man told deputies Saturday that he believes neighborhood kids left a urine-filled box on his porch.

The 60-year-old man said someone rang his doorbell and left at about 8:15 p.m. When he opened the door, the man said he found a candy cane-shaped box with a yellow liquid in it. He believes the liquid is urine.

The man said he’s had problems with area kids ringing his doorbell and running away. Until the incident, the kids have never damaged or left anything.

 

Man threatens waitress at Waffle House

A waitress at the Grovetown Waffle House restaurant said Saturday that a man asking for tape got angry and threatened to burn the building down.

The waitress at the restaurant on Lewiston Road near Interstate 20 said four men came into the restaurant at about 1:15 a.m. One of the men asked for tape to repair a $20 bill that was torn in half. When the first waitress refused to give him tape, the man asked a second waitress. When she said they didn’t have any tape, the man called her a liar. The waitresses asked the man to leave if he was going to be rude. They said he then got loud and yelled, “I will burn the Waffle House down.”

When the second waitress called authorities, all four men left. The waitresses were concerned for their safety and that of other employees and customers in the restaurant.

 

Car damaged
in driveway

A Grovetown man said that his daughter’s car was damaged on Christmas Eve.

The 57-year-old man said his daughter drove her Nissan Sentra home from work at about 4:30 a.m. He returned home at about 10 a.m. and found the car badly damaged while parked in the driveway.

Someone tried to remove the rear bumper cover before tearing it. Someone tried, but was not able to pry their way into the car.

Three of the wheel covers were removed and someone began loosening bolts that held the front bumper cover on.

 

Man threatens staff at hotel

An employee of a hotel near Interstate 20 told deputies Saturday that a man unhappy with a room rate threatened to shoot her.

The employee of the American’s Best Inn on Belair Frontage Road said a man came into the office at about 9 p.m. to rent a room. The man wasn’t happy with the rate and demanded a discount.

After the employee reduced the cost of the room, she said the man still wasn’t happy. He told the employee that if she didn’t give him the room for the price he wanted that he’d come back and shoot her.

The man left in a white Honda Accord with a South Carolina tag.

After leaving, the employee said the angry man called the hotel and made more threats.

News Times Please!

For crime prevention purposes please include street names and block numbers for crimes you are reporting in the police blotter.

I can't see that the police blotter serves any purpose unless you allow residents to know where the incidents are occurring so they can be on the lookout for other attempts or suspicious people.

Not much of a request and it could be simply handled.

Thanks.
