Police blotter

Posted: June 28, 2017 - 1:41am

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

 

Attempted pot sale goes bust

One man and two juveniles were arrested and charged after an attempted marijuana sale on school grounds turned into an unsuccessful attempted robbery by snatching.

Police found a juvenile at Evans High School in possession of more than 11 grams of marijuana, according to the incident report. Upon further investigation, it was discovered that the juvenile and Darnay Jackquez Bradford arranged a meeting at the school to buy marijuana from another juvenile.

Bradford and the first juvenile reportedly conspired to rob the other juvenile before the transaction could take place.

The juveniles were each charged with marijuana possession with intent to distribute and transported to the Regional Youth Detention Center. Bradford was also charged with marijuana possession with intent to distribute.

 

Indecent act prompts call

A woman called police after she said she discovered a man committing an indecent act in the toy aisle at a Martinez business.

Police responded to the Dollar General on S. Belair Road by an employee. The victim told police that a black male in his mid 30s followed her around the store while she restocked merchandise, according to the incident report.

When the victim turned the corner and went down the toy aisle in the store, she saw the unknown man masturbating.

The victim told police that she yelled at the man and told him to leave.

The man said to the victim, "I'm sorry, you're just so beautiful ... can I still get a phone card?"

The victim said she told the man to leave immediately. He left in a black 4-door sedan.

Police seek two theft suspects

Police are working to identify two men they say are suspected of stealing merchandise from an outdoor retailer.

Two subjects were caught on surveillance video, one with dreadlocks who is suspected of using a cloned credit card at Gander Mountain last week to purchase seven Helix sonar depth finders, according to the incident report.

A second subject with a thick beard was seen driving the vehicle the first subject left the property in.
