At approximately 10:10 a.m. July 17, a deputy and EMS responded to Crepe Court in Murrells Inlet because of an “extremely intoxicated” woman lying in the road.
The 29-year-old woman claimed to have been hit by a car but “her injuries did not appear to be consistent with her story,” the report states.
The woman was uncooperative and would not answer questions asked by the officer. She did talk about her boyfriend, so the deputy went to the boyfriend’s house.
He spoke with another woman who said she did see the couple arguing but did not witness anything physical.
The boyfriend was later found and he admitted they had been arguing but said he did not harm her.
The deputy went to the hospital to speak with the victim again and her story about what happened changed several times.
Girlfriend takes truck
A man from York, S.C. said he was visiting Murrells Inlet July 20 when his girlfriend – a 44-year-old Blacksburg woman – took his wallet and his son’s vehicle from the home in which they were staying on Collins Ave.
The man said he and the woman had been arguing the previous evening so he went to sleep. When he woke up on July 20, the wallet, the truck and the woman were gone.
The man said he had only known the woman for a week before the thefts occurred.
The deputy called the woman’s cell phone but it went straight to voice mail.
Two women are accused of breaking into the home of a Margo Lane man while he was hospitalized July 16-17.
The man’s daughter said she discovered the burglary when she went to clean her father’s house.
Two other witnesses said the accused women entered the home and took a 24-inch LCD TV, several country music CDs as well as an electric guitar and amp.
The women reportedly entered the house through an unlocked back door.
One of the suspects is a former resident of the home who was evicted several months ago, the report states.
Missing Arby’s cash
An Arby’s worker said she was counting the money in a cash drawer July 20 and left $189 on a counter while she took an order at the drive-through.
She said she was at the drive-through for about five minutes and the money was gone when she returned to the counter.
Two employees cooperated by emptying their pockets. The worker said it’s possible someone walked in and took the money while no one was paying attention but there are no suspects.
Wants restraining order
A woman from the 4400 block of Columbine Court met with a deputy July 15 saying she wanted to take out a restraining order against her husband.
The woman said the 80-year-old man threatened to “blow her brains out” and then hit her on the nose with his hand.
She said there are five handguns in the house and she was scared he would shoot her.
The case was presented to a magistrate for warrant consideration.
A window air conditioning unit was reported stolen from an apartment in the 4600 block of Lomax Court July 15.

There was no sign of physical evidence anywhere around the window.
A boat motor, valued at $5,000, was reported stolen from a home in the 500 block of Coquina Ave. July 16.
