  • Updated Saturday, October 5, 2013 5:49 am

A woman called police Aug. 30 and reported someone had broken into a home in the 500 block of Britton Street within the previous two weeks.
It appears entry was made by prying open a back door.
The woman said items taken included a DVD player, a TV stand, clothing, shoes, blankets, checks, a money order, a wallet containing $200, two cell phones, jewelry, food and shampoo.
A neighbor reported seeing a 23-year-old woman at the house on two occasions. The woman was accompanied by a male and was towing a utility trailer.
The case is still being investigated.

He wanted his meds

Georgetown police arrested a 37-year-old man who was causing problems at the hospital at about 1:45 a.m. Monday.
Security officers said the man had been asked to leave but refused to do so.
Police describe the Georgetown man as smelling of alcohol with slurred speech, bloodshot eyes and he was unsteady on his feet.
When asked to leave the man said “I ain’t leaving until I get my [expletive] Percocets.” He was warned to calm down and stop using profanity but he reportedly continued to cuss so he was arrested for disorderly conduct.

Fake gas money

A 24-year-old Georgetown man is accused of using a counterfeit $10 to pay for gas at the Kangaroo station on Church Street in Georgetown Aug. 30.
When the cashier used a testing pen on the bill, she told the man it was not real. He said he had no idea it was fake and gave her another $10 bill, which was legitimate.
No charges were filed since the store received the real bill.

$25,000 worth
of jewelry stolen

 A woman who lives in the 600 block of Crystal Lane in Murrells Inlet said she was out of state when someone stole jewelry from her home, and from a storage shed in Horry County.
The woman said she did not notice the theft until about a week after she returned. She said she went to a pawn shop in Garden City and saw some of her jewelry on display. She said she knows it was hers because she had been collecting the pieces from different places around the world during her business travels.
The pawn shop returned that jewelry to the woman.
The woman said the only other person with a key to her house is a man who does odds-and-ends jobs for people in the area.
The case is still under investigation.

County shed destroyed

 A shed belonging to Georgetown County Public Works caught fire Sept. 2 and arson is not suspected.
The shed, at 615 Grate Drive, was seen to be burning by a man who lives nearby.
By the time firefighters arrived, the shed was burnt to the point that it could not be determined how it began.
The shed contained equipment such as vacuum cleaners and gas cans.
“There were materials inside the shed that could have ignited by themselves,” the report states.

 Shots fired

Gunshots rang out in the 7900 block of Ocean Highway in Pawleys Island at about 3 a.m. Sept. 1.
A deputy went to Jabella’s Nightclub where there were 10-15 people in the parking lot.
They all said they did not see or hear anything. The deputy was later approached by two people who said they did hear 5-6 shots coming from the back of the parking lot.
They said they saw a car take off after the shots were fired.
With no additional information to go on, the case was closed.

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