Phony phone service
An elderly Martinez woman reported to the Columbia County Sheriff's office that someone has been receiving phone service under her name.
Annette Barbara Dobyne, 66, who owns homes in Martinez and in Florida, told police that she received a past due bill for $85.07.
Dobyne was told by a phone company representative that her service would be interrupted if she didn't pay the bill. The phone company also told her that the account, opened with her Social Security number, was opened last September, the report stated.
Dobyne is also calling her bank and the credit card bureau to find out whether there are any more fraudulent actions taking place in her name.
Brenda L. Arbogast, a real estate agent from Hephzibah, contacted the Columbia County Sheriff's office to report some furniture in a single-wide trailer that she says didn't belong there. The trailer is located on the property of a Washington state resident that Arbogast represents.
She also pointed out to officers that the frame to a sliding glass door at the rear of the trailer was damaged, but the door was locked. An investigation found the house had not been entered, but more damage was found to the front screen, which was cut by an unknown object.
