The following accounts were taken from reports filed with the Columbia County Sheriff's office.
Impatient driver hits car
A driver apparently impatient to pass another car repeatedly rammed the rear bumper of a vehicle owned by a Martinez woman until he could get around and then ran the other vehicle off the road.
Angela D. Crabb, 20, of the 4300 block of Quail Creek Road in Martinez, said she was driving west on Washington Road between Georgia Highway 150 and Dogwood Lane about 3:30 p.m. on April 20 when a tan Lincoln Continental began tailgating. The driver of the Lincoln tried to pass but couldn't because of on-coming traffic, Crabb said.
The driver of the Lincoln then rammed her 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier on the rear bumper five times. Crabb said the other driver then passed her vehicle, but swerved sharply in front of her, causing her to run off the road to avoid a collision.
The other driver continued westbound.
Prescription drug stolen from unlocked vehicle
A Martinez woman reported April 21 that someone entered her unlocked vehicle in the 6200 block of Holloway Road, Appling, and took the prescription drug oxycontin belonging to her friend.
Crystal Ann Pearson, 17, said that while she and Matthew Carl Jones, 20, were visiting between 12:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. April 20 on Holloway Road, someone entered her 1994 Toyota Camry and took 32 pills of the drug from the glove compartment.
Vandal causes water damage at day care center
Someone opened water faucets over night at an Evans day care center and caused about $200 damage.
Leonna Arant, assistant director of West Haven Day Care, said that when she arrived at work April 21 she found a cigar wedged between the front door and the door frame and two exterior water faucets turned on.
The open door allowed the water to enter the building, where it did about $200 in damage to carpet in two classrooms.
