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

Man arrested for intoxication

A man was arrested for public intoxication after he was found slumped over the wheel of his running vehicle at a Grovetown gas station Tuesday.

Police were called to Pilot, 4091 Jimmie Dyess Parkway about 3 a.m. after a cashier notified police. The cashier told police she reached into the unlocked vehicle that was parked by the gas pumps and shut if off for safety reasons before calling police.

Deputies found Jerrod Jerome Allen, 26, slumped over the seat. After stepping out of the vehicle, Allen admitted to drinking but he did not know where he was or how he got there.

Classroom vandalized

Police were unable to determine if anything was stolen in a burglary at Westmount Elementary School overnight Monday, but they did determine someone had discharged a fire extinguisher inside a classroom.

While conducting a building check at the Oakley Pirkle Road school Tuesday morning, a deputy discovered one of the portable classroom trailers had been forcefully opened and discovered the vandalism inside the classroom.

Harlem store reports theft

A Harlem business owner told police someone stole several lawnmower batteries and a bike from his Gordon Highway business overnight Monday.

Deputies responded to The Saw Shop, 3985 Gordon Highway, Tuesday after the victim discovered someone had cut the fence and removed the items.

Handicap decal stolen

A woman, 53, called police Wednesday after discovering her handicap decal was stolen while she shopped at Wal-Mart. The woman told police she was shopping at the Bobby Jones Expressway store for about an hour when she returned and discovered the tag that had been hanging from her rearview mirror was missing. She believes the thief entered through the rear door of her vehicle.
