Crime in the Creek

  • Wednesday, August 14, 2013

The following incidents were obtained from Goose Creek Police Department and Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office reports:
• A Snow Goose Circle man saw a male suspect exit his apartment with his iPad at about 11 a.m. on Aug. 7. After the suspect escaped, the victim activated the iPad’s remote lock and saw it was on Darcy Avenue.
Deputies found the suspect trying to sell the iPad on Brockman Way. The iPad was returned and the suspect was taken to the detention center.
• A man was walking his dog on Pine Hall Drive while an Edenton Road woman was cooking dinner on the barbeque as her Great Dane was leashed in the backyard. The Great Dane got loose and chased after the man walking his dog. The Great Dane did not stop as the woman called and chased after it.
The Great Dane caused the man to lose his balance and fall down. The Great Dane owner said her dog never attacked the man or his dog and no charges were filed.
• A Bromwich Drive woman said her grass was burned by what she believes to be chemicals on Aug. 5. Although she did not see him do this, she suspects it was her neighbor across the street, who has attempted to spray her yard with chemicals numerous times but she refused to let him.
She said her backyard trees also appear to be burned with chemicals.
• A Moncks Corner man said he was near Confederate Drive to move a doublewide trailer off of a site on Aug. 7 at about 9:30 a.m. That’s when he said his boss hit him in the head with a brick for no apparent reason.
The boss said when he arrived everyone was sitting and work was not getting done. He started yelling at the employee and said then he came at him and swung his fist. A fight ensued in which the employee broke the driver’s side mirror of his boss’s car. A witness said the employee hit the boss with a fist and threw a brick, which the boss deflected with a tire.
The boss picked up the brick and threw it back, hitting the employee in the chest. The boss signed a refusal to prosecute form.
