The following incidents were obtained from Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office reports:
• A Goose Creek man told police he was recently the victim of an armed robbery near Redbank Road. The victim said he was walking down the back street of a trailer park at about 5:30 p.m. when two male suspects wearing all black approached him. One subject assaulted him and demanded money. The victim handed over all the money he had. The subjects fled out of the back of the trailer park.
The victim ran home and called 911.
• A Ladson man parked his pickup truck at his Scotch Pines Lane residence over the weekend. When he went to start the truck the next Monday the gas cap was open and the tank appeared empty. The complainant said when he last drove the vehicle it had about half a tank of gas.
The complainant said he believes someone siphoned the gas.
• A Pineville man apparently had a wild ride at about 10 a.m. on a recent morning while attempting to pull a utility trailer through Goose Creek. A complainant said the subject was driving on Westminster Boulevard toward St. James Avenue when he saw a blue SUV pulling a utility trailer driving toward him and weaving into the opposite lane of traffic.
The complainant slowed down and pulled up next to the SUV, which had stopped. The complainant asked if the subject was OK, but found that he got out of the vehicle unsteady on his feet, was staggering, spitting up saliva and appeared extremely intoxicated. The subject went to the rear of his vehicle and attempted to re-attach the trailer with a chain. The complainant said the SUV was not equipped with a trailer ball and hitch, and the subject wrapped a chain from the utility trailer around his bumper. The subject then dropped the trailer and drove off.
A deputy soon made contact with the subject, who was in the driver’s seat with the door open, his left leg hanging out and his body slumped over in the vehicle. He was passed out. The deputy sat him on the grass, where he vomited. The deputy notified dispatch of a possible DUI. The subject denied having a trailer or ever pulling one that morning.
• A Harbour Lake Drive resident was arrested for being disorderly after he received a noise complaint for playing loud music at about 4 p.m. on a recent afternoon. The deputy could hear the music coming from the subject’s apartment and made contact with him. After the subject turned the music down he would not produce an ID and said he did not care about the loud music and did not care if he received a citation.
The deputy then obtained the subject’s ID and wrote a ticket for loud music, a violation of county code 38-1. As the deputy was leaving, standing next to small children in the parking lot, he heard the subject shout profanities. He approached the subject again who was standing outside his apartment and claimed to have shouted the profanities at his neighbor. The deputy placed the subject under arrest and transported him to the detention center.
