Georgetown police responded to Independent Seafood on Cannon Street June 25 after a man stole fish from that location.

The egg-thrower was not located.
An Indian Hut Road resident said someone entered her house and stole her Oxycontin and Roxicodone pills from a lock box in her bedroom June 21.

She also said the window was busted the day before the burglary and later said it was broken during the burglary.
She also said a neighbor saw some male teens on her property but she ran them off.
The case is under investigation.
