A woman from Carriage Run Road in Pawleys Island said she was out walking her dog June 9 when she received a text from her estranged husband wanting to know whose car was parked in her driveway.
When she did not respond, the 58-year-old man sent a second text stating he would break every one of the car’s windows.
This time the woman responded telling him the car belonged to their daughter and son-in-law.
Soon after, the woman received a call from their daughter who said her father had forced his way into the home and was making a lot of noise.
The man — who was gone when his wife and a deputy arrived — allegedly damaged the home but details of the damage were not listed in the report.
The woman showed the deputy a restraining order signed by a judge April 30 which states the man was not to be at the house or make contact with his wife.
The woman also let the deputy see other texts she had received from her husband in which he called her vulgar and profane names.
An arrest warrant was expected to be signed.
He keeps calling
The May 25 Police Blotter contained an article about a man who was making lewd telephone calls to nurses and other staff members at Waccamaw Community Hospital.
On May 31, a deputy was called back to the hospital because the calls were continuing.
A female hospital worker said the man calls frequently and will not stop.
During the calls the man asks for directions to the hospital and even asked the woman to undress while making other graphic sexual remarks.
The man, during some of the calls, says he lives in Sampit.
The woman was asked to fill out a victim notification form. The investigation into the calls is continuing.
Vacationers discover burglary
A woman from Atlanta said she arrived at the home on Parker Drive in Litchfield she was renting June 10.
About 45 minutes after her arrival she noticed the house had been burglarized.
A $700 flat screen TV was gone. A window and door were open.
There are no suspects.
An 18-year-old inmate at the Georgetown County Detention Center is accused of assaulting a female jail worker by spitting on her June 9.
The guard said the man got in a fight with his cellmate so he was being moved to a different cell when he became combative. A taser had to be used on the man to bring him under control.
The man then spit on the officer twice.
Once the workers got the man in the cell he reportedly said he will kill the guard when he gets out of jail. He said if he can’t get out of jail he has people on the outside to do the job.
A worker at the Pawleys Island CVS said a 25-year-old Georgetown man tried to pay for his purchase with a counterfeit $100 bill.
The man was still at the store when a deputy arrived. He said he had no idea the currency was fake. He said he received it when he cashed his check at Wells Fargo in Pawleys Island.
He was not charged.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
