Crime in the County

  • Wednesday, June 26, 2013

The following incidents were obtained from Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office reports:
• A deputy recently responded to Platt Road in St. Stephen over a possible assault and altercation over fishing worms. The complainant said she and the subject had a verbal altercation after the subject was trying to sell her fishing worms for crack. Both parties had consumed some type of alcohol while fishing together that day. The complainant denied EMS treatment. She said she was hit twice in the back by the subject.
The subject said that he and the complainant had a verbal argument and he was struck in the chest several times. The complainant said she did not wish to pursue charges.
• A citizen called deputies on a recent evening after finding a white female lying on the ground next to a Ford Taurus off Boy Scout Lane. EMS responded and transported her to a nearby hospital for further observation. Her vehicle was towed from the scene.
• A man reported someone broke into his Hard Pinch Road residence recently. When he returned from church that day he found the doorjamb broken after someone evidently pried open the door. He was missing a jar containing about $300 in quarters and a .25 caliber handgun and a .38 caliber revolver with a 2-inch barrel. The victim did not have the serial numbers for the guns.
• On June 12 a Moncks Corner man reported someone stole a 2006 Volvo tractor that was parked off U.S.-52. The tractor is valued at $40,000. It appeared the driver’s side window was broken out and subsequently stolen. The complainant provided a license plate from Indiana but the registration could not be located.
The last known registration was found through NCIC and showed Evans Delivery Company Inc. of Schererville, Ind. to be the owners. The vehicle was entered into NCIC.
