Two men from Green Acres Mobile Home Park saw a suspicious man inside a residence in the 200 block of Haven Drive that was supposed to be unoccupied.
They said when they approached the unidentified man he took off running, so they gave chase and subdued him and held him until law enforcement arrived.
The suspect told the men he was only in the mobile home to have sex.
After talking to the men, the suspect broke free and could not be found by deputies.
A condom wrapper was found in the front yard of the mobile home.
School bus fight
Two Carvers Bay High students – ages 14 and 15 – were charged with disorderly conduct because of a fight that occurred on a school bus Oct. 23.
The video from the bus’s camera showed the two fighting.
The driver stopped the bus and called law enforcement. The students were allowed to remain on the bus and the incident was dealt with the following day.
Both students face possible expulsion.
Huge theft during
More than $12,000 worth of items was stolen during a burglary at a home in the 600 block of Stacey Court Oct. 28.
A woman said when she returned from work she saw a back window was broken.
The woman said it was a bedroom window and that appears to be the only room from which things were taken.
Items taken include a gold tennis bracelet, a gold flower bracelet, a gold necklace with a Jesus charm, a pistol and a safe weighing about 50 pounds.
The safe contained about $10,000 in cash, credit cards and important papers.
There are no suspects.
Gator slows getaway
of alleged wallet thief
A deputy was sent to 14490 Ocean Highway in Pawleys Island Halloween because of an injured alligator in the doorway of a medical building.
While awaiting the arrival of a DNR officer, the deputy saw a man open the front door to leave the building but when the man saw the gator he went back inside.
The man then walked out of another door towards the parking lot but a worker informed the deputy the man had just stolen the wallet from the pocketbook belonging to a patient.
The victim said she left her purse unattended while she walked to the window to take a picture of the alligator. She said when she turned around she saw the man placing her wallet in the front of his pants.
The 40-year-old Georgetown man was detained in the parking lot and was searched. The woman’s wallet was found in his pants, so he was arrested.
Woman threatened by
man looking for robber
A Page Lane woman said she was outside her home the evening of Oct. 28 when a 27-year-old Pawleys Island man walked up asking if she knew if her neighbor was home.
The man told the woman he had recently been robbed by her neighbor. The two talked for a while then the man left. She said about 15 minutes later he returned. This time he had a woman with him.
The man found out the woman had called her neighbor after he left and the suspect got mad.
The man called her his enemy since she is friends with her neighbor. He then pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and said he would kill the neighbor and anyone else. The gunman told the woman to hand over her phone or he would shoot her.
She complied and was then able to run inside her house and she used another phone to call 911.
The victim said the woman who was with the suspect seemed very scared when he presented the gun and she does not believe the woman knew what was going to happen. That woman soon came walking out of the woods near the residence.
At first she said she had not seen the suspect for two days but after being detained in handcuffs and speaking with the man’s family members, she admitted he was in a ditch next to the woods.
Because the victim never said if the gun was actually pointed at her, the man was not charged at the time.
The case was expected to be presented to a magistrate for consideration.
