Police Blotter: Woman stabbed after cell phone theft

  • Friday, January 24, 2014

Georgetown police met a 23-year-old woman in the emergency room Jan. 13 where she was being treated for stab wounds.

The woman had stab marks on the right side of her face, her right shoulder blade and her index finger.

The woman said she was at a home in the 2300 block of Prince Street when she and another woman got into an argument over accusations of cell phone theft.

The argument continued for quite some time. At one point, the suspect attacked the victim with a knife, resulting in the stab wounds.

The suspect has not been located to be arrested.

They were sleeping

A 24-year-old man from North Carolina was arrested after locking himself in a bathroom at the Waffle House in Murrells Inlet at about 8:30 p.m. Jan. 18.

A deputy arrived and was told by workers the man appeared to be highly intoxicated.

The officer forced the door open and found the man slumped over and he appeared to be sleeping. It was the same man who the deputy had dealt with for the same thing earlier in the evening at the nearby Food Lion.

He was charged with disorderly conduct.

At about 1 a.m. Jan. 19, a deputy was on Davinshire Road in Andrews when he saw a Dodge Charger with its lights on next to the road.

He pulled over and saw a 53-year-old Georgetown man sleeping behind the wheel.

The deputy had to try several times to get the intoxicated man to wake up.

The man did not know where he was or how he got there.

He was also arrested for disorderly conduct.

Chicken wing theft

The manager of Prestige Farms in Murrells Inlet said one of his employees was seen walking away with a 40-pound box of chicken wings.

It was determined the box had allegedly been taken from the warehouse.

The box of wings was later found hidden on the ground near the warehouse cooling unit.

When the worker - a 50-year-old Murrells Inlet man - was asked if he hid the box with the intent of stealing it, he reportedly said “yes.”

The worker was arrested.

No reason was given for the attempted theft but the incident did take place the day before the NFL division championship games.

Computers stolen from Walmart recovered

Georgetown police are continuing to investigate after stolen merchandise was reportedly sold by the thieves to Radio Shack and Money Man Pawn.

Police took five reports this month - three at Radio Shack and two at Money Man Pawn - about the stolen goods.

The owner of Radio Shack says he was sold a Sony laptop and two HP laptops by a 19-year-old Georgetown man. It was later learned the computers had been stolen from Walmart.

A Sony laptop and an Acer computer, also stolen from Walmart, were sold to Money Man Pawn.

All the computers have been returned to Walmart.

Dead Dog customers eat and run

A man and woman, whose identities are unknown, are accused of fleeing without paying at Dead Dog Saloon in Murrells Inlet Monday afternoon.

After the couple finished their meals and drinks, a waitress placed the bill on their table. They looked at the bill, then got up and ran out the front door without paying the $51 tab.

A deputy was given photos of the couple from security cameras but they have not been located.

Man reports scam attempt

A man from Shade Street in Georgetown contacted police Saturday and reported someone tried to obtain his personal information over the telephone.

He said he received two text messages telling him to contact Achieve Department in reference to his account. He said he is not familiar with the company but he called and was asked to enter his social security number, bank number and credit card information.

He did not comply.

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