Police Blotter: Jealousy leads to gunfire

  • Friday, December 6, 2013

Deputies were sent to Lincolnshire Drive in the Greentown community at about 8:45 p.m. Nov. 29 because of a report of gunfire.

A 50 -year-old woman said the incident began earlier in the day when her daughter’s boyfriend - a 42-year-old Conway man - thought she was talking to her ex-boyfriend. The man was mad and left but later returned. That is when he allegedly got into an argument with his girlfriend’s mother who told him he had to leave her property.

Later that night the victim was outside talking with another woman when someone in a dark colored car drove up and fired five shots. Two of the bullets hit the victim’s car but no people were hurt.

The woman the victim was talking to told deputies it was the Conway man who fired the shots. The victim said it looked like his car but she did not get a good look at the driver.

The vehicle was found in a ditch in Greentown but by the time deputies arrived, the driver had fled the scene.

Walking man robbed

An 18-year-old Georgetown man says he was robbed while walking on South Kaminski Street at about 2:15 a.m. Nov. 28.

He said two men were in a black Crown Victoria that stopped next to him. He said the men jumped out and “rushed him” while demanding money. The man said the attackers took his wallet that contained $300 in cash.

He said the men did not present any weapons. He said once they took his wallet they got back in the car and were last seen driving on Gilbert Street.

The man did not require medical attention and the suspects were not located.

Accidently shot on Thanksgiving

A 31-year-old Pawleys Island man was accidently shot in the foot while at a Thanksgiving gathering in Maryville.

The victim was outside talking with a 37-year-old Andrews man when the older man wanted to show him the revolver he carries for protection.

While holding the gun, the hands of the man from Andrews were shaking due to nerves. He dropped the gun and it discharged when it hit the ground.

The bullet traveled through the victim’s foot.

The older man drove the victim to the hospital. He was expected to make a full recovery. Police note the gun owner was very upset about what happened and the victim also said the whole thing was an accident.

No charges were filed.

Bush hider makes threats

A man from the 4300 block of Crepe Myrtle Court in Murrells Inlet said as he approached the entrance to his condo Nov. 24, a 56-year-old neighbor jumped out of the bushes where he had been hiding and said he was going to kill the victim.

The suspect was mad because he thinks the victim called the police the previous week when he was fighting with his wife which resulted in his arrest.

After making the threat, the suspect reportedly fled into a nearby wooded area.

The victim said he did not want to press charges but wanted the incident documented in case he decided to seek a restraining order.

Goodwill disturber hides in the trash

A man causing a disturbance at the Goodwill Store in Murrells Inlet was arrested Nov. 20.

A worker said the 49-year-old man was being loud and was using profanity in the parking lot.

When deputies arrived, the man had left the Goodwill store and was hiding in a Dumpster at the CVS store. The deputies found the man in the Dumpster and discovered he had an outstanding warrant for driving without a license.

He was arrested and was transported to the Detention Center but the workers there would not book him in because he was intoxicated. He was taken to the emergency room where he stayed until he could be medically cleared to return to jail.

Missing mail

Mail has been disappearing from a mailbox in front of a home in the 4400 block of Bed Straw Court in Murrells Inlet. On Nov, 25, a man told a deputy he and his wife noticed mail missing from their box for the past few weeks.

He said the items taken were birthday and holiday cards with checks inside them.

He said in early November they returned from vacation and received conformation a package had been delivered but he never saw the package.

He said he wanted the matter documented but if it continues he would like it investigated.

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