Crime in the Creek
The following incidents were obtained from Goose Creek Police Department incident reports:
• In a grand larceny reported March 8, more than $22,000 in jewelry was missing from a Turnmill Drive resident. The incident is believed to have occurred sometime between Christmas and March 8. The victim said this is the second time rings have gone missing from her residence. Five rings were listed as stolen. The case remains active.
• Nearly $1,000 in rings were reported stolen from a Tammie Avenue residence on March 13. Items reported stolen were four gold rings, a gold rope chain, four pairs of gold plated earrings, four gold plated necklaces and assorted U.S. coins. The victim said when he left that morning his residence was secured. When he returned home he found the side entrance door to the residence in the carport had been forced open.
There was visible damage to the door frame. The victim said the aforementioned jewelry was stolen from his wife’s jewelry boxes located in the master bedroom dresser.
• Police responded to a panic alarm from a fast food franchise at North Goose Creek Boulevard on the morning of March 19. The manager said they sounded the alarm due to a suspicious black male suspect acting strangely within the business. The subject advised employees he was just released from a local hospital and had walked there. He was asking for directions to Moncks Corner.
The manager began to ignore the subject after he asked, “If I jump over the counter and hit someone would the police come?” He further explained he used to be a boxer and would fight any cops. The subject then left the restaurant and started walking along U.S.-52 toward Moncks Corner. He had a deformed right eye, which he said is an injury from being shot.
