Deputies were sent to a home on Deas Drive in the Sampit area at about 1:30 a.m. May 31 because of a 34-year-old man on the roof under the influence of crack cocaine.
The man told deputies he flew to the housetop and admitted he was high on cocaine, the report states.
One of the officers asked the man to come off the roof. The man said he would not do so but said the officer could fly up to the roof and talk with him.
After several attempts were made, the man finally climbed off the roof.
He was arrested for disorderly conduct.
A teenage girl from Sea Dollar Lane in Pawleys Island said a 20-year-old man she knows stopped by her house while she was home alone May 24.
She said the man walked to the door and she saw he was intoxicated but she let him inside.
Once in the house, the man began calling her names and yelling at her before slapping her on the face.
“I am going to blow up your house and I am going to kill you,” the man allegedly yelled.
The teen said she got mad and shoved the man out the front door. She then locked all the doors and the suspect drove away.
When asked by a deputy how she knows the suspect, the teen said she met him at a mall back in January and he met her parents but they disapproved of him.
False address used in theft
A man from Blackberry Ave. in Murrells Inlet says someone used his address when they opened a BB&T account.
The man said he found out about the situation when he received a statement from the bank May 24.
The statement had the name of someone else but had his address.
Bank officials told a deputy the account was opened by someone at a Columbia branch. It appears the person only used the man’s address and not his name to open the account.
A van was reported stolen from Frank’s Restaurant in Pawleys Island at about 10:50 p.m. May 25.
A restaurant employee said he was in the van but ran inside the building to find someone, leaving the key in the ignition.
Two males were seen on the restaurant’s security camera video getting in the van and driving away.
The van has not been located.
A man from Baltimore said sometime between 12:30 a.m. and 9:10 a.m. May 27 someone stole his red and gray Honda motorcycle from Litchfield Inn.
He said the bike had been parked in front of his hotel room.
The man said he never heard anyone crank up the bike.
A guitar worth $1,100 was reported stolen from The Fish House in the 13000 block of Ocean Highway.
A worker said the instrument was taken from her car.
She said she did not notice the guitar was missing until May 24 so she is unsure when it was stolen.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
