Crime in the Creek
The following incidents were obtained from the Goose Creek Police Department and Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office:
• A Ladson woman reported a criminal domestic violence and larceny incident on a recent night. She said she was at a bookstore in North Charleston and when she left the subject, whom she knows, followed her home. Before she could get out of her vehicle the subject opened her door, grabbed her phone from her hands and fled. She said she had not been with the subject for a while and was avoiding him. The deputy did not observe any marks or bruises from the altercation on the victim.
• A Goose Creek woman reported an assault on a recent night after an incident on Redbank Road in which she says she was riding in a vehicle when the subject shoved her in the chest and poured beer on her. The deputy responded to her Surfside Drive residence and did not observe any marks or injuries to the victim who said she did not wish to press charges.
• A Ladson man filed a report after his truck was stolen three days prior and had since been recovered by the Walterboro Police Department. The victim picked up his truck from a wrecker company in Green Pond. He noticed his prescription medication of Adderall and Oxycodone, wire cutters, a chop saw and a toolbox with various tools were missing. The missing items have an estimated value of $600.
• The manager of a steel company reported that over $18,000 in scrap metal had been stolen from Alliance Drive in past incidents. The scrap metal was discovered to be missing during a recent inventory.
Other employees reviewed surveillance video and saw on six occasions an unauthorized pickup truck approached the area where the items were stored and departed a short time later with an obvious lowering in the cargo bed indicating heavy items were acquired on site. The incidents occurred on April 14 at 11:36 a.m., on April 20 at 9:20 a.m., 9:40 a.m. and 10:43 a.m. and May 5 at 7:49 a.m. and 8:07 a.m.
The suspect vehicle is a white extended cab pickup truck with a black roof, hood and bed. The truck in the May 5 incident is black.
