Crime in the Creek
The following incidents were obtained from Goose Creek Police Department reports:
• A Westview Middle School assistant principal contacted the School Resource Officer after finding possible narcotics on campus the morning of Dec. 7. The assistant principal gave the SRO a bag containing a small quantity (about 1.5 grams) of a green, ground up substance believed to be marijuana.
The assistant principal said an anonymous student alerted them to the bag while walking down the hallway. The bag was taken to a GCPD evidence locker for destruction.
• An officer responded to a residence on Amy Drive at about 5 p.m. on Dec. 11 just after a larceny occurred. The victim said the house “For Sale” sign in the front yard had just been stolen. The victim said he was in his residence and heard a knock on the door. He did not answer but watched via his security cameras located around the residence as a white male drove a pickup truck onto his property.
The subject knocked on the front door and attempted to look inside the residence through the front door. The subject went into the yard, grabbed the sign, placed it in the back of the truck and drove toward Stephanie Drive.
• A Covey Court man walked to his car at 5:30 on a recent morning and discovered that his wallet was missing from the center console. The victim said the vehicle was left unlocked. The wallet contained three credit cards, $35 cash and a driver’s license.
Three fraudulent charges were made on one of the cards, the victim realized after checking an online statement. All three charges were for $35 at two gas stations in Moncks Corner and one in Goose Creek.
• On Dec. 12 at about 11:20 p.m. an unknown person rolled a 1996 Ford Bronco on Foster Creek Road near Deerberry Road. When police arrived there was no driver to be found, only the vehicle lying on its side off the roadway.
An officer determined the vehicle had been coming from Snake Road at a high rate of speed. As the vehicle came around the corner near Foster Creek Park the driver lost control, crossed into oncoming traffic and left the road. The front tire bit into the ground and forced the vehicle to flip over, coming to rest on its passenger side.
Before the officer arrived on scene Hanahan Police officers said that an unidentified male flagged down a passerby to ask for a ride in the immediate vicinity of the collision. The passerby said the male appeared to be bleeding. An officer collected one of many blood splatters inside the Bronco to be placed into evidence.
