Crime in the Creek
Following incidents were obtained from Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office reports:
• A man entered a convenience store on Redbank Road on a recent night and attempted to redeem a lottery ticket. The clerk scanned the ticket and the machine indicated she needed to contact the lottery commission immediately.
The clerk did and learned the ticket was stolen and that she needed to contact local authorities. The clerk said the subject is a regular customer and left the store when he realized she was on the phone. The ticket was taken into custody and entered into evidence.
• A deputy responded to the manager’s office of a trailer park off College Park Road where he met a victim who said while doing a property check on his rental home in one of the lots he noticed his $10,000 air conditioning unit along with two radiator heaters were missing. He said the last tenant to be in the home was there over the weekend and vacated the property.
He had attempted to contact her throughout the day but was unsuccessful.
• A deputy responded to a Westminster Boulevard address where a victim said his vehicle had been broken into and a Garmin GPS and a phone charger were missing. The victim said a Goose Creek Police Department officer may have located one of the missing items. The victim said he may be able to locate the serial number of the GPS. An officer advised the responding deputy he found a GPS and located the address programmed as “home,” which led to the victim’s address.
• A Ladson man reported that the fence was cut to his business off Royle Road. He noticed his red and white 2005 Honda CR230F motorcycle was missing. He said he had stored the motorcycle at the business for the last eight months. He did not have the VIN at the time but said he would call the sheriff’s office with that information later.
The motorcycle has an estimated value of $850.
