Suspicious shed fire

Vandals struck the pool house at Wachesaw East in Murrells Inlet on March 10. A worker said someone used a cigarette lighter to damage a patio chair, burned a paper sign, wrote profanity on notices that were on the bulletin board in the gym and threw the books from the gym bookshelf on the floor.

Video from security cameras show three young females leaving a bathroom and walking into the gym. One of the females is seen setting fire to the sign. She then put the fire out with her hand.

The same female is the one who burned the chair.

The couple said this is not the first problem they have had and they are getting tired of it.

Damage to the fence is estimated at $50.

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