Crime in the County

  • Thursday, November 21, 2013

The following incidents were obtained from Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office reports:

• At about 5 p.m. on Nov. 10 an Alice Lane man said a man from a towing company came to repossess his vehicle. While the towing company was leaving with his vehicle he said he stepped in front of the tow truck and was struck by it. He said he started feeling chest pain, back pain and neck pain. He said he wanted the incident documented.

• A man was hunting in the Francis Marion National Forest on Nov. 9 at about 5 p.m. when he shot and killed a doe off Twister Lane. He said he was confronted by a white male subject carrying a hunting rifle. He said the subject appeared intoxicated and confronted him about hunting too close to his deer stand, and on his property. The subject kept harassing the complainant about hunting laws.

The complainant showed a deputy on a map where the deer stand was in the national forest. The next day the complainant went to retrieve his deer stand and was again confronted by the subject.

• At about 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 11 a deputy responded to an Edgewater Drive residence in Pineville after a woman reported a disturbance with her neighbor.

She has had ongoing issues with the subject, who on this date had a verbal altercation with her and her boyfriend while they were loading tools into their truck.

The victim said the subject then came onto his front porch with a shotgun and pointed it at them and exchanged more words with her. The subject told the deputy he had a shotgun on the porch but never left his porch and never pointed it at the victims.

• After conducting a morning walk-through on Nov. 11 of homes being built on Carolina Wren Avenue, a construction superintendent called the sheriff’s office.

He reported a refrigerator and oven missing. He said someone attempted to remove the dishwasher but was unsuccessful, causing more than $250 in damages.

The oven is valued at $609 and the refrigerator is valued at $1,400.
