Crime in the County

  • Tuesday, March 6, 2012

The following incident reports were obtained from the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office:
• A Moncks Corner man said that neighbor and the neighbor’s adult son have been speeding past his residence, spinning the tires on their vehicles, making gestures and yelling at him as they pass. The complainant said he has tried talking to them but has had no success in resolving the matter. The subject denied wrongdoing; he told officers he slowed down and gave the complainant a thumbs up gesture.
• A foreclosed home on Hoodtown Street in Bonneau was robbed of its heating and air conditioning units, valued at $2,000. A finance company complainant said the units had been intact during their last visit about two months ago. No latent fingerprints were lifted from the scene.
• Copper from an air conditioning unit as well as a clock were stolen from a Popular Hill Drive residence in Cross. The clock was worth about $100 and the AC unit was valued at $1,000.
No suspect information is available.
• A Bonneau resident was on his way to see a friend in St. Stephen; while traveling down Schurlknight Road he said he heard gunshots, ducked down and crashed into a ditch on the other side of a stop sign he didn’t see.
Officers spoke to another witness who saw the vehicle drive into the ditch. A deputy located three .40 caliber shell casing in the roadway about 1,000 yards from the intersection.
The case is under investigation.
