A man from the 200 block of Davis Alley in Georgetown said he was leaving his home Tuesday evening when he found a paper taped to his front door.
“The note was written in Spanish and loosely translates to ‘if you do not leave here, you are a dead man,’” the report states.
The man said he has no idea who would leave such a note.
The note was placed into evidence.
Cooler theft caught on tape
An employee of Georgetown Landing Marina told police three Igloo coolers were stolen July 22 and the suspects were caught on the surveillance cameras.
Two males and a female were recorded as they stacked the coolers onto a rolling cart. They then pushed them into the parking lot.
The cost of the coolers is about $100. The suspects have not been identified.
Police responded to the 1900 block of Railroad Ave. at about 2 a.m. Sunday after an altercation between a man and woman involving a knife.
The woman, who is from Myrtle Beach, was cut on the hand but said she did not need medical attention.
The man told police the woman hit him on the face causing a laceration but he also refused EMS help.
The woman admitted hitting the man. She said she did so because he was arguing with her mother.
The knife was never found.
The woman was arrested for breach of peace.
Woman spits at officer
While on foot patrol on Front Street at about 12:25 a.m. Sunday, police saw a 38-year-old woman being escorted out of Castaways Bar by a bouncer.
Once outside the woman was yelling and cursing at the bouncer.
The officers walked over and detained the woman by trying to place her in handcuffs. She resisted by trying to pull away and she tried to spit on one of the officers.
Once they got the cuffs on her, she was taken to jail.
As the officers were dealing with the woman, a 58-year-old man was heard shouting profanity repeatedly.
The man was standing at the door of Castaways and was yelling inside being “vulgar, rude and insulting,” the report states.
He appeared to be extremely intoxicated and was also taken to jail.
Hair loss abuse
Deputies arrested a 32-year-old Pawleys Island man who allegedly pulled out a wad of his girlfriend’s hair while in a rage July 19.
The incident happened at a home on Christopher Circle.
The woman was crying when deputies arrived.
She said her boyfriend arrived home drunk and got mad and grabbed her by the hair, picked her up and slammed her on the ground.
The woman said the argument that led to the violence started because her boyfriend had been at his ex-wife’s home for about three hours.
The man was charged with criminal domestic violence.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
