Beach barricades

Georgetown County officials cautions people that they should not move barricades at public beach access, or face the consequences.

In a Facebook post, officials showed a temporary barricade had been removed and thrown into a garbage bin.

"We know you're frustrated that public beach accesses and boat landings are closed. We miss the beach too," they said about the photo.

Leaders said that law enforcement will be enforcing Gov. McMaster's executive order that closed public access to state beaches and said that removing or destroying the barricades or other materials is an act of vandalism.

For the crime of vandalism in Georgetown County, a fine of $1,092.50 will be given along with Governor McMaster's failure to comply order carrying another hefty fine or even jail time.

"Please be patient and let's all get together through this together," officials said.
