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

Ex- breaks into man’s home

A Martinez man said Thursday that his ex-girlfriend broke into his house and assaulted him.

The 40-year-old man said that at about 8:40 p.m. on Thanksgiving, his ex-girlfriend came over uninvited and argued with him. He told her to leave and walked outside. He said the ex-girlfriend then started kicking the door, screaming and threw a wooden post through the living room window. The ex-girlfriend came into the house through the broken window and came after him. She grabbed the man and scratched his neck.

The ex-girlfriend admitted to kicking the door and breaking the window to get into the house. She said she was angry about the status of their relationship. She was charged with criminal trespass and simple battery.

Lost wallet found, stolen

A Grovetown man called authorities on Thanksgiving after his lost wallet was found, then stolen.

The 75-year-old man said Thursday that he accidentally left his wallet at the customer service desk of the Food Lion store at 5157 Columbia Road on Nov. 23. An employee found the wallet and locked it in the store safe.

The next day, the man said he got a call from a blocked number. The male caller said he found the man’s wallet in the store parking lot. The call ended and the man wasn’t able to contact the caller again.

The man went to the store and spoke to an employee, who said a man came in and said his grandfather lost his wallet. The employee gave the wallet to the unknown man, though the man said his grandson did not pick it up.

Burglar leaves items in home

An Evans woman said Friday that a burglar left items inside her vacant home instead of stealing them.

The 61-year-old woman said her home is on the market to be sold. On Friday morning, someone entered the home and left a washer and dryer in the garage and a small basket shelf inside the house.

There were no signs of forced entry, but the keybox left by the realtor was missing. The realtor said no one was given a key.

Wife damages man’s truck

A man told deputies Thursday evening that his estranged wife ­damaged his truck.

The man said he was shopping at the Grovetown Wal-Mart about 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving. When he exited the store at about 9:45 p.m., he found tires on his truck damaged. The man said he and his wife, who are separated, happened to be at the same place and she damaged his truck while he shopped.

The man’s wife said she’s jealous that he had moved on and admitted to the damage. The couple is still legally married and the truck is registered in both of their names.
