A North Carolina woman called Georgetown police Aug. 28 and reported her 15-year-old son had been smoking marijuana with his 38-year-old father.
She said her son stayed with his dad in the City of Georgetown for two weeks in July, which is when the pot smoking reportedly took place.
The woman said she was notified about the incidents by her son’s counselor. She said she wanted her ex-husband charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Child offered candy
A 7-year-old boy was playing in his front yard on Hodge Drive in Green Acres Mobile Home Park at about 7 a.m., Aug 23, when two men in a pickup truck stopped near where he was playing.
According to the incident report, the passenger rolled down his window and told the boy “come work with us and we will give you some candy.”
The boy said neither man exited the truck or tried to approach him.
Later that day, Pawleys Island police pulled the truck over and arrested the driver for driving with a suspended license.
Since the child said he was not in fear when the man was talking to him, no charges were expected to be filed.
Wife finds nude pics
A Conway woman called deputies to file a complaint against a 45-year-old woman from the Hemingway area of Georgetown County.
The Georgetown County woman was accused of showing people pictures on a phone that were allegedly of the Conway woman’s “private parts,” the report states.
When contacted, the woman said she did have such photos on her phone.
She said she had been having problems with her husband cheating on her with the Conway woman.
She said her husband claimed he lost his phone so she bought him a new one.
She said she saw her husband sleeping on the couch holding the phone he said was lost. She looked through it and saw the photos which she said were sent by the woman from Conway.
The woman said she never showed the pictures to her friends but it is “a small community and it was not hard for anyone to find out what occurred.”
Police responded to the Kangaroo store on Highmarket Street Aug. 28, where a Georgetown woman had used a counterfeit $20 to pay for a purchase.
The woman told police she had received money earlier in the day when she cashed a check at TD Bank.
The bank was supposed to review its security camera footage to see what transpired.
Pot in a snuff can
A Georgetown High student was suspended after being caught with drugs on campus Aug. 26.
Police met with the principal and the welding instructor who said he confiscated a snuff container from the 17-year-old student.
He said he thought the can contained tobacco but when he opened it he saw it was marijuana.
The student had left for the day by the time police were called but his parents agreed to return with him to discuss the matter.
The student admitted the pot was his, the report states.
A warrant was expected to be drafted charging the teen with simple possession of marijuana.
A woman from the 22100 block of Choppee Road reported her $500 earrings were missing from her bathroom Aug. 25.
She said a 24-year-old man her husband has been trying to help stopped by while she was washing dishes.
She said while he was there he did go into the bathroom while waiting for her husband to return.
The suspect walked out the bathroom and left the home. The woman discovered the earrings – a gift from her mother – were missing the next day.
