Crime in the County

  • Wednesday, November 27, 2013

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

Deputies responded to a disturbance near Moncks Corner at Queenie and Channing roads recently in regard to a verbal confrontation between a parent and bus driver. The parent said they were upset because it had been an ongoing issue that the bus driver would not drive down Channing Road to pick up their child, who has special needs. The woman said she is tired of waiting at Queenie Road and being chased by area dogs. An officer told the woman she needs to address the school directly and not cause disturbances on a bus full of middle school children.

A home on Old Whitesville Road was broken into after the victim had only been gone for an hour and a half that evening. They returned to find a 50-inch TV missing along with $800 from a shoebox in the bedroom, which was ransacked. A $100 purse was also missing. The victim noticed the kitchen window was broken and a paint scraper was found that was not there when he left the residence. The paint scraper was taken into evidence.

On Nov. 14 a woman reported that sometime during the previous night her aluminum dog box was stolen from the back of her truck while it was parked off U.S.-17A in Bonneau. The dog box was valued at $100.

On Nov. 15 a copper theft was reported from a church in Pineville. The copper was stolen from the propane tank. The subjects also dug a hole around the base of the tank but were unsuccessful in stealing additional copper. An unknown amount of propane leaked from the tank. The estimated value of the stolen copper is $20.

On Nov. 16 a man reported that both of his trucks parked at Crystal Shores Lane near Moncks Corner were missing their gas caps and the gas doors were open. The victim got into his vehicles and saw the gas gauges indicated they were empty. One of the vehicles had a quarter of a tank the night before. The stolen gas is estimated to have a value of $25.
