Former Electric Medic owner arrested again

Fri, 7/18/2014 11:15 AM

The former owner of an electronics repair business charged with scamming customers early this year was arrested again Thursday for stealing electricity and a power meter.

Perry Clark Bower, 54, former owner of Electric Medic, turned himself in to authorities Thursday afternoon. He is charged with theft and two counts of theft of utilities, according to Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris.

Between July 11 and Monday, Bower returned to La Petite Plaza on Washington Road, where he operated his business, and stole a power meter from a vacant building, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident report. The property manager discovered and reported the theft July 14.

The incident was caught on video surveillance cameras, which revealed Bower stealing the meter. Morris said Bower disabled the tracking device on the meter and installed it at his Martinez home, which didn’t have electricity. Deputies went to Bower’s home July 15, confiscated the meter and, because of a medical issue, gave Bower until Thursday at 5 p.m. to turn himself in to authorities.

Later that night, a neighbor notified police that Bower’s residence had power, so deputies returned. They found he had rigged the power meter on his home with a pair of scissors to make it work, Morris said.

Bower was arrested four times between Jan. 16 and Feb. 4 and faces more than 70 counts of theft by deception, Morris said. Authorities received about 100 complaints about Bower and his business from people stating they would leave a television for repair and a deposit with Bower or he would go to their homes and repair or collect electronics.

Some said they couldn’t reach Bower by phone; others said he didn’t repair their electronics or repay them for his charges.

Since then the business was closed and Bower was evicted in February for not paying rent for his business location in La Petite Plaza, where he left about 1,000 pieces of electronics, mostly televisions. Columbia County marshals had to identify as many owners as possible and return the electronics.

Bower was arrested again in May after two people filed reports to the sheriff’s office that he’d pulled a similar scam under a different business name – G & H Electronics. Morris said that G & H had been closed for more than a year and the owner was not aware Bower was using the name.

Morris said residents in other nearby jurisdictions have also made similar complaints against Bower and were told to file reports with the appropriate authorities.

Bower’s earlier bond condition was that he not engage in a television repair business. He is still awaiting trial on the charges.

He’s being held in the Columbia County Detention Center without bond.

Home invasion victims refuse to help police

Fri, 7/18/2014 9:15 AM

An investigation into an Appling home invasion was terminated Thursday after the victim refused to cooperate with authorities.

A married couple told deputies they were robbed by two men who held them at gunpoint in their home early Tuesday.

The couple, both 27, said they were sleeping at about 3 a.m. when two men forced open the front door of their White Oak Campground Road home. The men brandished handguns. Both were wearing gloves and one man wore a mask.

The couple said the men ordered them out of bed at gunpoint and onto the floor, where they used duct tape to tie the couple’s feet together and their hands behind their backs. The intruders asked where items of value were and stole $30,000 in cash, a Ruger .380 pistol and some marijuana.

The intruders asked where the couple kept the DVR to their home security surveillance system and stole that too. They tried to break into the man’s gun safe, but were unable to.

They asked the couple to count to 30 as they left in the man’s 2005 Nissan Altima headed south toward White Oak Road.

Deputies found the car abandoned on Greenbrier Drive off White Oak Road.

Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris said Thursday that the investigation was closed because the victim refused to cooperate.
