The following incidents were obtained from Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office reports: • Officers responded to an alarm that sounded at 2:25 a.m. on a recent morning at a country club on Exeter Plantation Road in Moncks Corner. Deputies found the glass broken out of a door leading to the golf shop. As deputies were clearing the building one officer heard glass falling near the bar. The deputy saw that the glass door was broken out, and saw fresh footprints heading toward Old Highway 52. Deputies secured the building but did not find a suspect when searching the area. A key holder arrived and told officers at least $650 had been taken after the registers in the bar and golf shop were ransacked. The cash safe had also been broken into. • The Timberland High School sign was apparently shot with a shotgun, according to a citizen who reported the vandalism. The complainant said this is not the first time an incident like this has occurred at the St. Stephen school. The sign was damaged to the point that new letters could not be placed on the sign. • A Cross man said he had $800 worth of fishing rods stolen from his boat parked at a campground on Ranger Drive in the middle of the day. An unknown person stole six rods and reels that were locked in the rod holders on top of the boat. The rods are seven-foot Ugly Sticks and the reels are gold Bass Pro Shop reels. • A male and female suspect apparently assaulted a 45-year-old Moncks Corner woman on a recent night. The complainant said as she was leaving her residence on South Live Oak Drive, the suspects pulled up in a white SUV whose owner she knows. She said a male and female got out of the vehicle, threw gravel and dirt at her, hit her in the face and kicked her in the head. The suspects then got back in the vehicle and fled on 17-A heading toward Moncks Corner. The deputy noticed a scratch on the victim’s cheek, a cut on her knuckle and dirt on her pants. The victim knew the first names of the suspects and said she’d been in a dispute with the owner of the SUV. She said she received threatening texts from an unknown number, which she suspects is the female who assaulted her. The victim refused EMS but said she would take herself to the hospital.
