Police Blotter: Shower-taking intruder

  • Thursday, July 17, 2014

A man reported someone has been breaking into an apartment on Brandy Mill Way since May and has been taking showers and moving things around but nothing was stolen.

The man said the water has been disconnected for weeks so he has no clue how the person was using the shower but he believes the suspect has been bringing water in from the outside.

The deputy was given a shampoo bottle and pickle jar that the owner says were not his.

He said he rarely stays at the apartment.

He was advised to call the Sheriff’s Office if he discovers any new information.

Ex accused of theft

A woman from Charlotte said a condo she owns on Inlet Point Drive in Pawleys Island was burglarized sometime between May 16 and June 22 and she thinks the ex-husband of her friend may be responsible.

The woman, who filed the report July 1, said $2,100 in cash was taken but the reason she feels her friend’s ex may be to blame is because also taken were some legal documents that belong to her friend.

That woman’s ex husband used the documents against her in a recent court hearing. The man was not supposed to have the documents, the report states.

Also, the father of the woman’s ex-husband owns a condo in the same building and the suspect was staying with his father around the same time the burglary took place, the report states.

The case is still under investigation.

Woman assaulted

A woman called deputies to a home in the 200 block of Petigru Drive in Pawleys Island July 4 after she was reportedly attacked by her 25-year-old boyfriend.

The woman said the two were in bed and he woke her up wanting sex. When she refused he allegedly pulled her hair and started choking her.

He left the residence on foot and the woman was able to call 911.

The case was presented to a magistrate for warrant consideration.

Suspect admits past crimes

A DeBordieu security guard was on patrol at about 3:30 a.m. July 6 when he noticed a man running from the gazebo area of the clubhouse.

The guard gave chase and was able to catch the 26-year-old man from Greensboro, N.C.

After the deputy arrived and read the suspect his Miranda Rights, he said he was at his grandparent’s house and was riding around on his golf cart.

“He advised he had some anger issues he was working out,” the report states.

He said he saw some other people breaking into the gazebo but ran when he saw the guard.

The guard said he did not see or hear anyone else in the area besides the suspect.

As he continued talking to the officer, the man talked about his criminal history which incudes breaking and entering. He said he is always “at the right place at the wrong time,” the report states.

The suspect was taken to jail for vandalizing the property.

Not happy with cat feeder

A woman said she has been feeding three cats at a home in the 100 block of Player Street in Pawleys Island with permission of the property owner.

On July 2, she was feeding the cats when a neighbor walked over and started cursing at her saying the cats had been spraying all over his yard and walking on his vehicles.

The woman said the man threatened to shoot the cats.

She said she does not know who the man is bit wanted a report filed in case something happens to the cats.

Fireworks and beer

A deputy responded to the area of Parish Road and Cogdill Place at about 1:30 a.m. July 4 because of a fireworks noise complaint. It was the second call of the night for fireworks in the area.

There were three males in the road who turned away and started walking towards a house when they saw the deputy driving towards them.

The deputy saw them throw down some cans and there was firework debris and beer cans all over the road.

The deputy stopped the two men who said they did not know it was illegal to shoot the fireworks.

Those two men — ages 19 and 20 from Charlotte, as well as another 20-year-old fro Charlotte who was on the scene – were written citations for being minors in possession of alcohol.
