The owner of Waves Surf and Sport in Pawleys Island said around $100,000 worth of merchandise has been stolen from a warehouse on the property.
He said the stolen items were sold to other stores.
The man said he went to other beach stores and saw his merchandise.
There was no sign force was used to enter the warehouse. An investigator was not called because the theft was discovered about a week after it occurred and any evidence would have been contaminated.
Teen goes ‘crazy’
A teenage girl from Mariner Avenue in Murrells Inlet called 911 May 2 because a 14 year old boy stopped at her home and “went crazy” and began to vandalize her house.
The girl said when the boy showed up uninvited she told him he could not be there because her parents were not home but he stayed anyway.
The boy allegedly called the girl’s mother a bad name and she slapped him in the face. That is when the boy flipped over a table in the living room.
The girl and some of her friends then tried pushing the boy out of the house and he rammed the door causing damage.
When questioned by a deputy, the boy admitted calling the girl’s mother a name and ramming the door. He denied turning the table over.
The boy is also accused of leaving threatening messages on the victim’s voicemail.
He was charged with trespassing and malicious injury to personal property.
Burglary in Pawleys
Deputies were sent to a home in the 800 block of River Oaks Circle in Pawleys Island May 2 because and woman and her teenage daughter thought there was someone inside the house.
They said they arrived home and saw there was a light on that should not have been and a door was partially open.
The teen said she walked around the outside of the home and heard someone in the kitchen, so she ran.
The deputy searched the home and there was no one inside.
There are no confirmed suspects but the teen said a boy she goes to school with could possibly be responsible.
Nothing appeared to have been taken from the home.
An employee of Advanced Auto Parts in Georgetown is accused of stealing from the store.
The manager said they hired the worker in early April and started noticing money was missing during the shifts he worked.
It was discovered the worker had allegedly been “slipping money between the counter and the top of the register as customers paid for their merchandise,” the report states. “After the customers left he would slip the money into his pockets.”
The manager said the actions were caught on video.
