Police Blotter: Car takes an ax beating

  • Thursday, February 13, 2014

Deputies arrested a 26-year-old Georgetown woman after she caused serious damage to another woman’s vehicle Jan. 31.

The incident happened at a home on Sirfield Street. A man and his girlfriend said they were in bed when they heard a banging sound. They looked out and saw the suspect beating the woman’s car with an ax.

The windshield and back window were busted out when law enforcement arrived. There were also ax marks in the body of the vehicle.

The report notes the woman did appear to be “manic” and was saying she was attempting to fight the demons and had to show the angels something.

She was charged with destruction of property.

Newborn tests positive for cocaine

A baby born at Waccamaw Community Hospital Feb. 4 tested positive for cocaine.

The newborn’s mother -a 36-year-old Pee Dee Community woman - also tested positive for the drug.

The baby was taken by DSS and was placed in foster care.

Coins theft

Deputies were sent to Deep Grocery near the Six-Mile Crossing at about 9:30 p.m. Feb. 4 because of a burglary.

The owner was on the scene when the officers arrived and showed them the front glass door that was shattered.

He said someone broke the door then went inside and broke into a quarter machine and fled with an unknown number of the coins.

The incident was caught on camera. The quarters were loaded into what appeared to be a pillow case.

The suspect appeared to be a white male but his face was mostly covered.

A witness reported seeing someone run behind the store after the alarm was activated.

Back glass shattered

A man from the 18600 block of North Fraser Street said he and his wife were in their home at about 8:30 p.m. Jan, 31 when they heard a loud noise in their front yard.

The man said he ran outside but did not see anything so he went back in and went to sleep.

The next morning he saw the back window of his wife’s vehicle was shattered. Nothing was found that was used to break the window. It’s believed someone hit it with a blunt object.

Stolen lottery tickets

The owner of 521 Mini Mart called deputies Feb. 5 after noticing a large number of lottery payouts that had occurred Feb. 1. She questioned the cashier who was on duty and was told another worker had cashed in scratch off tickets.

The owner said this may have been going on for months and she will work with the Lottery Commission to get the amount of the payouts.

The report states each fraudulent ticket is a separate federal offense.
