Crime in the County
The following incidents were obtained from Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office reports:
• A home on Highway 45 in Cross was vandalized sometime between Oct. 9 and 22. The complainant watches the home for their sister. The complainant received a call from a friend saying the front door was open.
Someone apparently kicked in the front door but nothing appears to be stolen.
• On Oct. 18 between 6:15 and 8:30 p.m. someone stole a red Troybuilt riding mower valued at $800 from behind a residence on Firehouse Road in Pineville.
• Sometime between Oct. 18 and 20 someone stole $100 from the donation box of Ebenezer Church on South Live Oak Drive near Moncks Corner. The church’s front door was kicked in. Latent fingerprints were lifted from the donation box and taken in as evidence.
• Two window air conditioning units were stolen from a residence on Charity Church Road sometime between Oct. 15 and 20. The victim did not have serial numbers for the missing units.
• On the night of Oct. 19 someone stole the tailgate from a dark blue 2004 Dodge Dakota. The vehicle was parked in the victim’s yard on Harristown Road in Bonneau. The tailgate was taken off cleanly with the bolts removed.
The complainant, the victim’s daughter, told officers she did not hear anything suspicious.
• A Moncks Corner man said he was walking along South Live Oak Drive on the night of Oct. 22 in front of his residence on the 2100 block looking for his wallet. The complainant said he saw some cars approaching and got out of the roadway. The complainant told officers the next thing he remembers is waking up on the side of the road with his head bleeding.
The complainant walked to his brother’s home and went to the hospital. The deputy saw a laceration on the back of the complainant’s head. It is unclear if the complainant was physically assaulted, or if he was struck by an object thrown from a passing.
