Man loses documents
On Dec. 20, a Columbus resident called in to the Platte County Sheriff's Office to report several documents missing. Sheriff Ed Wemhoff said he could not clarify the content of the documents, but added that it was not too uncommon for people to report missing birth certificates of other legal documents to the Office.
The Sheriff's Office is currently looking into the matter to determine if the items were simply lost or stolen.
Columbus man arrested
Gregory Borowiak, of Columbus, was arrested on Saturday, Dec. 22, on a Platte County warrant. He was arrested from a Columbus residence by a deputy without incident and was wanted for failure to appear in court regarding charges of allegedly leaving the scene of an accident, driving under a suspended drivers license and reckless driving, according to Corporal Darrel Rickert of the Platte County detention facility.
He has since paid his $1,000 bail bond and was released from police custody on Dec. 24. Rickert said his court date has been set for 8:30 a.m. Jan 2.
* On Saturday, a semi truck veered off of Nebraska Highway 91, causing an estimated $10,000 worth of damage to a tree on a residential property located outside of Humphrey, Wemhoff said.
* On Wednesday, a mother brought her daughter in to the Sheriff's Office. She asked for a deputy to speak to her about the consequences of stealing, according to Wemhoff.
* On Thursday, a call came in to the Sheriff's Office reporting a power line along 370th street, about 10 miles north of Columbus, had been damaged. Wemhoff said he believed this to have been a result of the cold weather and wind. The Sheriff's Office notified the Cornhusker Public Power District which will make any repairs as needed.
