2 sought in car break-ins

Police have released images of two people they say are linked to a rash of auto break-ins last weekend.

The two seen in the photos are possibly involved in eight reported auto break-ins in several neighborhoods along Oakley Pirkle Road.

Photos were obtained from a stolen camera that was later ditched by the two.

Police said the break-ins occurred between May 12 and 13 and involved the theft of two handguns in one incident. A Sig Sauer P232 .380 and a Springfield XDS 9mm were reported stolen in one incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Jason Little at the Columbia County Sheriff's Office at (706) 541-4056.

 

Middle school students caught with alcohol

Three middle school students were caught with alcohol on school grounds, along with vanilla extract and Listerine, that they planned to use to get drunk .

An anonymous source alerted employees at Evans Middle School to several juveniles in possession of alcohol.

The parents of the three students were called to the school. A search of the students was conducted before police arrived, and vanilla extract and Listerine were discovered.

When asked, one juvenile told the teacher that there was a water bottle filled with vodka near her desk in the classroom. She told the teacher that the bottle had been brought to her by another student and she had taken a few sips.

She stated that she did not like it, so she gave it to two other students. They returned it to the first student during lunch out of fear of being caught. The girl who brought it said she intended to dump it out. She admitted bringing the vodka in the water bottle from home and taking several gulps, which made her feel dizzy.

Later, the three students passed the vodka around in the bathroom, taking sips. The student found with the vanilla extract told police she had heard that it was possible to get drunk from it but that she had not had any.
