The following incidents were obtained from Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office reports:
• A Cross man was driving past his son’s house on Asazlee Lane and saw a white Pontiac with its trunk open in his son’s driveway on Oct. 17 at 2 p.m. By the time the complainant turned around the suspect’s vehicle had driven off at a high rate of speed.
A flat screen TV, jewelry and cash were stolen, with a total value of $2,400.
• On Oct. 16 at 8 a.m. a Bonneau resident on General Moultrie Drive went out in the yard to let her dogs out. At 9:30 a.m. she came back out and noticed her front gate was slightly open and two bicycles were missing from her property.
One of the bikes is a red, 26-inch mountain bike and the other is a Mongoose with a candy-apple red seat.
• An unknown subject forcibly entered a Bonneau residence on Crawford Road between Oct. 1 and Oct. 16. A white Chevy S-10 truck was also stolen from the property. The rear door of the residence was pried open and the dead bolt was broken.
A screwdriver and a long handle axe were found near the open door. It was difficult for the victim to evaluate what items were stolen because they are in the process of moving. A toolbox, air compressor and battery charger were stolen upon first assessment.
• Seven pit bull puppies were stolen on Oct. 15 or Oct. 16 from a Big Nick Lane residence near Moncks Corner. All of the puppies were six weeks old. Three are black and white, three are chocolate and white, and one was cream colored. The puppies are valued at $100 each. Three witnesses saw a possible suspect.
• In the early hours of Oct. 15 a Rodenberry Road residence was broken into in Cross. The victim said three 40-foot silver extension ladders, a John Deere riding mower, multiple landscaping tools, a generator and 20 bags of 75-pound cement mix were missing. The stolen items have a total value of $3,599.
