A police officer was dispatched to the corner of U.S. Highway 17 and — coincidentally — Butts Street at about 8:15 a.m. Sept. 27 because a 34-year-old Georgetown man was walking down the road with his buttocks exposed.
The officer noted the man was exposing more than 50 percent of his rear.
The man was asked by the officer to pull his pants up, which he did then continued walking.
“When I pulled away [the man] pulled his pants back down and lifted his shirt to expose even more of his buttocks,” the officer wrote.
The man was arrested for disorderly conduct.
Georgetown police arrested a 34-year-old man reportedly involved in a hit-and-run Sept. 27.
A Moncks Corner man said he was driving on Highmarket Street when the suspect hit the back of his car and then sped away.
Police were given a description of the car and an officer spotted it. When the driver got to the intersection of Sorrell and Church streets, he jumped out and ran.
A little while later the man called 911 saying his car had been stolen while he was in the bathroom at the Carroll Campbell boat landing in Maryville.
The victim had given police a description of the suspect and so police knew the car owner was the suspect and his car had not been stolen.
He was charged with hit and run and filing a false police report.
A Walmart security officer told police two men tried to leave the store without paying for numerous items Sept. 28.
The man reportedly walked out with five laptop computers, four routers, two sets of T-shirts, a bag of charcoal and a decorative rug in a shopping cart. But they left the items in the cart in the parking lot and fled the scene in a Dodge Caravan with a New Jersey license plate.
The suspects were not located.
A 29-year-old Murrells Inlet woman is accused of breaking into the Hot Fish Club at about 3 a.m. Sept. 15.
The owner was reviewing security camera video Sept. 21 when she saw the woman breaking into the bar area and taking several bottles of alcohol.
There seemed to be a second person assisting but that person stayed out of the view of the camera.
A bartender identified the woman, saying she has been in the bar quite often recently.
The case is still being investigated.
A woman from Beard Lane in Pawleys Island returned from vacation Sept. 20 and discovered her house had been burglarized.
She said someone went through all of her closets and dresser drawers.
A hammer found by the back door does not belong to the woman, she said.
Two flat screen TVs and two shotguns were reported missing.
There are no suspects.
A manger at the Murrells Inlet Food Lion reported a loiterer Sept. 25.
A deputy responded and saw the 54-year-old Murrells Inlet man who had reportedly been approaching cars asking for money.
The man told the deputy he was looking for a job.
The manager confirmed the man had been placed on trespass notice for stealing from the store in the past.
He was arrested for violation of the trespass notice.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
