The following accounts were taken from reports filed with the Columbia County Sheriff's Office.
Two county residents found no evidence other than missing items while contractors performed work in their homes.

Patsy Ann White, 58, of the 1100 block of Appling-Harlem Road, Harlem, left her home unsecure while she was not home because contractors were repairing the floors. White found a cordless drill, toolbox filled with various tools, a $1,500 pair of diamond earrings and a diamond necklace missing from her residence, the report stated.
Two MacGruder Landing neighbors recently reported their vehicles hit with paintballs.
William Russell Jarrett, 50, found a dent in the tailgate of his 1999 Toyota Tacoma while parked at his home at 706 MacGruder Place, Evans, the report stated.
About the same time someone shot Jarrett's vehicle, two paintballs also struck a 1996 Chevrolet S-10 owned by Hubert Ronald Hartshorn, 62, of 708 MacGruder Place.
