Police Blotter: Theft at graduation

  • Monday, June 11, 2012

A 15-year-old was arrested for allegedly breaking into cars during the Carvers Bay High School graduation ceremony on Thursday.
A deputy patrolling the parking lot heard a car alarm and then saw the male teen holding a pocketbook near the car.
He was arrested and his grandmother was found inside the school and was escorted outside to speak with the deputies about her grandson.
A cell phone was found in the teenís pocket. The phone and purse belonged to the Georgetown woman whose car was broken into.
The suspect was taken to the Detention Center and was released to a relative six hours later.

Woman assaults boyfriend

Deputies were dispatched to Brandy Mill Way in Pawleys Island May 31 because of a domestic situation between a 25-year-old woman and 26 year old man.
The first deputy to arrive reported hearing the couple screaming from inside the home.
Because the front door was open, the officer walked in and the woman continued to yell at the man saying she wanted her phone.
The woman ignored repeated orders from the deputy to stop yelling so she was detained in the patrol car until other officers arrived.
The man was in a corner and appeared to have been crying.
He told the deputy he loves the woman and does not want her to leave him, which he thought she was going to do.
A neighbor reported seeing the altercation and said the woman was the main aggressor.
The woman was arrested and it was discovered she had a warrant from Horry County so she was driven to that county and was turned over to law enforcement.

A woman from the 100 block of Howell Road in Andrews returned home at about 9 p.m. Thursday to find her side door was partially removed from its frame.

So far, no arrest has been made.
