A woman from Dawhoo Lake Road said her 31-year-old neighbor walked over to her house Aug. 15 “yelling and swearing in an attempt to get her fiancée to come outside,” the report states.
She told her neighbor her fiancée was not home but he apparently did not believe her because he picked up a broom and used it to smash one of the woman’s windows.
The man then drove away but was soon found by deputies. He reportedly told them he would break another window if he could get his hands on the woman’s fiancée.
He was arrested for destruction of property and is out of jail on bond.

Strange intrusion

A man from Laurens, S.C. said he was staying at a trailer on Nandina Drive in Murrells Inlet Aug. 15 when the door opened and a man he does not know walked inside.
He said the stranger walked through the house and then left without saying a word.
The complainant said the visitor did not take anything and was in the home only a few minutes.
There is a possibility the intruder is friends with the daughter of a woman who was also staying at the mobile home, but that had not been confirmed by the time the report was written.

Inmate threatens jailer

An 18-year-old male inmate at the Georgetown County Detention Center is accused of threatening a female jail worker Aug. 10.
The worker said she was in the D cell block area when the man — in jail for assault and battery — told her he will shoot her when he gets out of jail.
He also said he would shoot her boyfriend.
Additional charges were expected to be filed against the man for making the threats.

Stolen checks

A 79-year-old woman who lives in Sumter said she had checks stolen from her mailbox earlier this month and one of the checks was used at Food Lion in Murrells Inlet.  The check was written in the amount of $106.

Muffin and meat theft

A woman from Tradd Road in Georgetown said she made muffins for her church and placed two bags of them in a freezer located in a shed behind her house.
She also placed pork chops and ground beef in the freezer.
All that food, plus packages of shrimp, was stolen from the freezer.
The woman told deputies she feels the food was taken by someone who was hungry because nothing else in the shed was missing.

Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
