The following were taken from reports by the Columbia County Sheriff's Office:

Couple robbed, backpack taken

Police are working to identify three black males who forcefully took a backpack containing jewelry, a passport and bank checks from a couple returning from work.

The victims told police that when they arrived at their residence in the 4400 block of Galway Drive in Evans around midnight, the three unknown males approached the pair and forcefully took the contents, which were all stored in a black backpack. The males fled the scene in a white Dodge Charger.

A witness at the scene confirmed the victims' stories and the case was turned over to the criminal investigation department.

A short time later, police responded to the Waffle House on SRP Drive in reference to found property. Police said a man found the items inside a dumpster there.

Police have relased surveillance video photos of a black male in relation to the case. The man had a white Dodge Charger, with Florida license plate 507FYI. Anyone with information is asked to contact Investigator Erica Newman at (706) 541-3943.

 

2 car break-ins in lot at YMCA

Police responded to two auto thefts at the Wilson Family YMCA.

One victim reported a purse missing, which contained numerous credit and debit cards, $220 cash, identification and an Iphone 5, according to the incident report.
A second victim reported similar damage to their vehicle with the passenger side window busted out in the parking lot of the Wilson Family YMCA.

The victim told police that a purse was also missing, which contained a Verizon Wireless employee badge, which could grant access to the store's inventory room. The victim's smartphone, U.S. passport and bottle of prescription medications were also taken.

 

Vandalism acts hit 2 residences

Multiple acts of vandalism were reported at an ongoing Evans construction site, and contractors are pointing to several juveniles who live in the area, though no charges have currently been filed.

Police responded to the the 300 block of Adagio Lane and the 900 block of Glenhaven Drive, both in Evans, Monday, to reports of criminal trespass, according to two separate incident reports.

The complainant, with Ivey Residential, told police that three large holes had been made in the walls at one residence, and paint poured down the stairs.

At a second residence, the complainant told police that damage had been done by pulling on the metal wire casing and wrapping window tape around the ceiling truss.

The complainant told police that he believed because of the nature of the damage, that the vandalism had been performed by juveniles living in the area. The complainant said they plan to prosecute if a suspect is named.
