Police Blotter, May 10, 2015

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

Cooler of bones left at business

A foul odor led deputies to find a cooler of suspected animals bones outside a Martinez business.

An employee of Nutritional Resources called authorities before 8 a.m. about a suspicious cooler. The employee said he came to work and found the cooler sitting beside the dumpster behind the business at 4099 Old Petersburg Road. The cooler emitted a strong odor.

Two deputies found the cooler. When they opened it, the deputies found an unknown liquid and several bones inside.

Two doctors from the Georgia Regents University Anthropology Department were called in and confirmed the bones were not human.

Construction goods stolen by men in pink car

A site manager for an area builder said Tuesday that two men stole construction materials in a pink car.

The site manager for B.R. Walden Construction Co. said he was at a construction site on Grimaude Boulevard near Grovetown at about 8 a.m. when two men driving a pink Saturn came to the site looking for employment. They were told to apply for a job at the home office.

The men then took six bags of concrete and a roll of felt, loaded the items into the pink car and drove away.

Man reports a suspicious text

An Evans man said he believes his wife’s ex-boyfriend sent him a text that deleted all of his messages.

The man said he received a text message at about 9:15 p.m. Tuesday. When he opened the message, all of his messages on his phone and tablet began to be erased. He also believes the message shut down the wireless internet at his house.

The man couldn’t remember the number the message was sent from. He disabled his phone and tablet and was going to contact his service provider to determine the cause.

Deal touts legislative successes in address

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said Thursday he thinks the recent legislative session most the most productive in all of the 17 sessions he has been involved in over his political career.

“I don’t think there is anything that can be overstated in terms of this year’s legislation,” Deal said, speaking to full house at the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce’s annual post-legislative breakfast event at Savannah Rapids Pavilion.

“Even though politics is a procession of adversarial encounters, very few good long lasting things come out of those adversarial encounters, unless people are will to meet each other in the middle,” he said. “With the help of the general assembly we have been able to do that.”

Deal tallied off a list of successes legislative compromises that brought reform to the state corrections system, advanced business interests statewide, secured new funding for transportation infrastructure and brought change to the state education system.

“Georgia is on the move,” he said “We are one of the leading states in the country on many, many fronts.”

Deal said one of the areas that his most proud of is a series of changes to the criminal justice and corrections systems, which are designed to keep non-violent offenders out of prisons and open avenues for some to gain skills for a better life.

He said a recent study showed that about 70 percent of offenders in state prisons were high school drop-outs. Once they serve their time they have few options upon reentering society, he said.

“You still don’t have a diploma from high school, you still don’t have any marketable skills, and many times you don’t even have a place to live,” he said. “It’s unrealistic to expect that they are going to be successful citizens that can reenter our society.”

Deal said legislation that has created diversion programs for juveniles and “accountability courts” for adult offenders is already keeping people out of the prison system.

The governor also pointed to changes in the education system that encourage more students to use the state technical school system and help guide students to potential careers as strategy to improve lives and grow a workforce that employers are seeking.

Deal said the state has identified 11 critical areas where there is a demand for trained workers that the state needs to fill.

“If you are going to do something about creating jobs you ought to start with the ones that are already available in your state and that is what we’ve done,” he said.

Deal also said the new gas tax to fund transportation infrastructure was a difficult sell, but important for state’s future growth.

He assured area residents that the gas excise tax was for a different purpose than the transportation sales tax, which is meant to fund new local projects.

“The money from (the gas tax) is really for the maintenance and upkeep of facilities,” he said. “So, if you think you are being double whammied, I submit to you that you are not.”

Afterward, Deal said he expected the state would be able to expedite one local transportation project, if approved by the U.S. Army command, development of a new gate at Fort Gordon and the associated roadwork that would require state funding.

“That is a high priority both for the state and certainly for the Army. We understand that,” Deal said. “I think you will find that it is going to be priority in terms of new projects.”

North Augusta police say man fatally shot by wife

Latest News from North Augusta Today - Tue, 4/8/2014 5:06 PM

Police said a woman shot her husband in their North Augusta Gardens apartment while their four small children were home.

North Augusta Public Safety officers were called to Apartment 1701 at the Marion Avenue complex around 10:30 a.m. and discovered Dakota Cook, 21, with a single gunshot wound to the head. He was transported to Georgia Regents Medical Center where he died from his injuries, Coroner Tim Carlton said in a news release.

Police have charged his wife of four years, 20-year-old Terry Cook, with murder. According to a news release, the shooting appears to be the result of an ongoing domestic dispute.

The couple’s four children, ages 4 months, 1, 3 and 4, were at home at the time of the shooting but were not injured, Lt. Tim Thornton said. The children are in the custody of their grandparents.
