Police Blotter: They don’t like each other

  • Thursday, August 28, 2014

A woman from the 100 block of Egret Run Lane wants a restraining order taken out against a 70-year-old female neighbor.

She said she and the woman have had issues and, on Aug. 17, they escalated.

She said she was out walking her dog when the neighbor drove up and blocked the driveway. The complainant said she asked the woman to move her car so she would not get hit and the woman reportedly responded by saying she “is not worth hitting.”

She said the woman refused to move until 911 was being called.

The accused woman told the deputy the complainant and her husband intimidate neighbors by writing down their license plate numbers.

When speaking with another neighbor, the deputy was told the women have been at odds for a long time and both are instigators from time to time.

The deputy noted the parties “do not like one another” but no crime was committed.

Drug arrest

A 47-year-old Conway man was arrested on drug and disorderly conduct charges after he was found outside a liquor store in the 14300 block of Ocean Highway at just past 11:30 p.m. Aug. 14.

The man was “staggering” and smelled like alcohol, the report states.

During the pat down, a pill bottle was found in the man’s pocket which contained various pills.

The man tried to run away but the deputy grabbed him by the shirt and he fell on the ground. He suffered some lacerations but refused EMS treatment.

The man was handcuffed and asked for a lawyer.

A dog that was in the man’s car was taken to St. Frances Animal Center to be housed while the man was in jail.

Father attack

A woman says she was assaulted by her 43-year-old father at his home on the South Causeway Aug. 16.

The woman said she went to her parents’ home to “clear up” a situation and to get some of her stuff. She said when she arrived, her parents started yelling at her and told her to take her dog.

She said as she was picking her dog up, her father grabbed her by the shirt collar and tried to hit her.

She said she put her dog down and was attempting to leave and her father chased her to the balcony. She said he threatened to throw her off.

He then reportedly pinned her down and tried to hit her again but she freed herself and ran away.

The woman decided she did not want to press charges.

Attempted burgary

Also on Egret Run Lane – in the 200 block – a burglary was reported Aug. 17.

A woman from Bayside, N.Y., who owns the home, showed a deputy where a screen on the back porch had been cut and a window was broken. There were also pry marks on the window frame.

It did not appear anyone entered the home.

Site theft

On Aug. 17 a deputy responded to the Publix construction site and met with a man who said someone broke into three utility boxes on a utility trailer.

Items were stolen from only one of the boxes. They include three chop saws, valued at $2,800.

There are no suspects.

Theft from hotel

A burglary was reported at the Seaside Inn located in Litchfield Aug. 16.

A Pennsylvania man said he noticed his iPod Touch was missing from his room.

He thought one of the children in the room had misplaced it.

However, when they returned to their room a couple of days later, the family saw their door was open and a Nikon camera was gone.

The hotel staff checked the room key history and discoverd three people had entered the room around the time of the thefts but there are no suspects.

Information is subject to change as investigations proceed. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
