Police Blotter: Citation issued for noisy dogs

  • Thursday, June 26, 2014

A man who lives near Pawleys Island Veterinary Hospital called 911, June 14, to report the dogs had been barking all morning.

The man said this is an ongoing problem. He said he was on his porch when he heard the dogs.

The deputy, noting the porch was 30-40 yards from the animal hospital, said he also heard the dogs barking while he was on the scene.

The officer went to the business and issued a citation for violating the noise ordinance.

Misunderstanding

Deputies were sent to Old Barge Drive in Pawleys Island June 14 where a woman said her adult son “became irate and mad” about some bad news the family learned.

She said her son has never acted in such a manner before but had been like that for three days.

The woman said her son never made threats but she was afraid of his behavior.

The son told a deputy he had been in the yard working all day and had taken a shower so he could take his parents out to supper for Father’s Day. But, he saw his mother was cooking supper which disappointed him.

The man was calm when he spoke with the deputy.

The deputy remained on the scene until the man left with a friend.

Counterfeit cash

The manager at the Pawleys Island Walgreens store said a woman purchased a pre-paid credit card and placed $425 on the card.

She paid by giving the cashier $450 in cash and received $20 change.

As the store’s deposit was being put together later that day, it was discovered the four $100 bills the woman had used were counterfeit.

The deputy noted all four of the bills have the same serial number. The $50 bill used also looked odd.

The manager said he has heard there is a counterfeit ring that stretches from Charleston to Myrtle Beach.

He gave the deputy pictures of the suspect from the store’s security cameras.

Coins missing

A man from the 500 block of Brace Drive reported his rare coin collection was missing from his home.

He discovered the collection was gone June 12. He said he kept the coins in a drawer in a spare room.

The man said he has never had the coins appraised but he estimates they are worth between $30,000 and $500,000.

He said the only person he suspects is his cleaning lady. He said about a year ago he noticed half a jar of quarters and a rare coin were missing.

The investigation continues.

Truck ‘keyed’

A man said his Toyota Tundra was vandalized while parked behind Frank’s Outback in Pawleys Island June 10.

The North Carolina man said he was in the restaurant for about 45 minutes and during that time someone “keyed” his truck.

The damage is on the bed, body and fender and is on both sides of the truck. The owner estimates it will cost about $3,000 to repair.

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