Crime in the County
The following incident reports were obtained from the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office:
• A deputy responded to a disturbance on Addison Dam Road near Moncks Corner shortly after 6 a.m. on July 10. The complainant said a tenant was supposed to move the camper she was residing in off the property July 3. The suspect and complainant had been arguing because she had not done so. She said she is not moving the camper until she receives an eviction notice.
As the argument continued she struck the complainant in the chest with both hands in the presence of a deputy. She was handcuffed, taken to the detention center and charged with third-degree assault.
• A thief reportedly found two winning tickets and two beers they stole from a vehicle on Cypress Gardens Road the night of July 4. The victim reported when he got in his vehicle on July 5 that he noticed the console was slightly ajar and a winning lottery ticket for $100 and another winning lottery ticket for $10 were missing.
Also missing from the cooler in the backseat were two Coors Light beers.
• A Bonneau man said he was sweeping the parking lot around his vegetable stand located off U.S. 17A near Moncks Corner on July 9 when someone took money from his cash box that he left sitting out in the open so he could keep an eye on it. The victim said when he stepped around to the back of the gas station for a minute $106 must have been taken by someone.
The victim said he heard a loud vehicle pulling away quickly and noticed the cash box was slightly open; he did not see the vehicle. There was however $20 under the cash box drawer that was left untouched.
• A deputy returned a utility trailer that was stolen from a James Island man and taken to a pawn shop off U.S. 52 near Moncks Corner. A BCSO deputy met with a Charleston County Sheriff’s Office deputy who was at the pawnshop on July 5 in regard to the 6 x 10 foot enclosed trailer.
The trailer was stolen June 27 by a North Charleston man and pawned June 28 for $850.
The serial number and trailer damage matched that listed in the CCSO report. A copy of the signed pawn slip, which listed the suspect’s name, was obtained. Warrants were obtained in regard to receiving stolen goods less than $2,000 and obtaining goods under false pretenses.
