The following accounts were taken from reports filed with the Columbia County's Sheriff's Office:
Smoke disrupts school
Smoke disrupted the start of classes Monday morning at Greenbrier High School.
The assistant principal of the school, 5114 Riverwood Parkway in Evans, said a fire alarm sounded after two "smoke devices" were lighted by someone. The school official said at least two students were seen in and around a boys bathroom before the incident. The Columbia County Board of Education will pursue charges when the students are identified, the report stated.
The incident occurred at 7:35 a.m. Monday.
Snack trailer burglarized
A concession trailer at Patriots Park was damaged and burglarized last weekend.
The incident, which occurred between 11 p.m. April 24 and 7 a.m. Monday, was discovered by a county worker and reported to police.
The back door to the trailer had been damaged, and candy, drinks and other snacks were missing.
The estimated amount of the damage was $1,000.
A 19-year-old Martinez man was arrested April 23 on a charge of shoplifting after he took beer and a frozen cappuccino from a Martinez gas station, it was reported.
John David Harbin, of the 600 block of Clinton Way West, was taken to the Columbia County Detention Center on a $1,100 bond. Authorities say Harbin took two 22-ounce containers of beer and a frozen cappuccino from the Citgo at 440 S. Belair Road without paying for the items.
Debit card fraud
A Martinez woman told police April 22 that someone used her debit card to purchase a painting in Seoul, South Korea.
The woman said she did not authorize the purchase and would like police to determine who might have used her card. She said she was notified of the charge on her card Feb. 14. She said the painting cost $986.
