Crime in the County
The following incidents were obtained from Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office reports:
• A Moncks Corner man reported an attempted burglary at his business on U.S. 52. The complainant showed the deputy a section of the employee lounge area where a large hole had been cut into the back of the building.
The burglar was apparently unable to enter because there was a large file cabinet directly in front of the hole. The burglar tore siding off the building and then tore a hole in the exterior wall.
The damage occurred sometime between 9 p.m. on Aug. 13 and 6 a.m. on Aug. 14.
• The manager of a store on South Live Oak Drive reported that two items were missing from a fenced-in area on the side of the business on Aug. 13. They are a John Deere 997 Z-Track zero turn mower valued at $18,000 and a John Deere 930M Z-Track zero turn mower valued at $9,000.
The mowers were located inside the perimeter of a wooden fence surrounding the building.
• The morning of Aug. 14 it was discovered that someone entered the storage shed of a church off Domingo Drive by cutting and removing a lock. A red 2009 Cub Cadet riding lawn mower, valued at $3,000, was stolen.
• Deputies responded to a disturbance at a lot off U.S.-17A near Moncks Corner and began checking all occupants of the residence for warrants through central dispatch. They discovered one subject, a 45-year-old man from North Charleston with an Otranto Road address that had warrants for failing to pay child support. The suspect fled on foot in an attempt to elude being captured.
A deputy caught the suspect as he attempted to crawl under a trailer. He was placed under arrest and taken to the detention center, where he was served warrants for failing to comply with a family court order, for failure to pay support and for evading arrest.
• A Promise Lane resident told a deputy that his air conditioning unit had been removed from the rear of his residence without his consent or permission on Aug. 8. The air conditioner is valued at $1,000.
