Crime in the Creek
The following incidents were obtained from Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office and Goose Creek Police Department reports:
• Someone didn’t take – but rather left – a grain of salt in the gas tank of a Middleton Drive woman’s vehicle. The incident occurred Jan. 26 and was reported Jan. 29 for insurance purposes after the victim had the vehicle fixed.
The victim said that morning she found the door covering the gas cap was partially open on her 2008 Nissan. She soon found a white substance outside the cap and determined it was salt upon tasting it. There is no suspect information but the victim said she wishes to press charges should a suspect be identified.
The damage to the vehicle is listed at $1,000.
• A Monteray Court woman’s vehicle was vandalized the night of Jan. 27. The next morning the victim noticed several small pineapples had been dumped on the front windshield of her 2007 Toyota 4 Runner parked in the driveway. There was a series of several small circles from an orange marker on the vehicle’s windows.
There were three foot-long scratches along various exterior panels and doors. The victim also noticed several broken eggs on her front lawn. The total damage is estimated to be $1,500.
• A Pineshadow Drive man reported that between Jan. 18 and Jan. 30 someone shot several holes into his residence with what appeared to be a 9mm gun. The victim estimates the damage to the vinyl siding is about $500.
• A Red Oak Circle resident reported that he last saw his moped parked in his driveway on Jan. 29 at 9 p.m. The next morning the moped was missing as the victim attempted to leave for work. The moped is a 2011 VIP Champion that is black and silver and has a cup holder attached to the handlebars.
The moped, valued at $1,000, has no rear brakes.
