Crime in the Creek
The following incidents were obtained from Goose Creek Police Department and Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office reports:
• At about 5 p.m. on Aug. 22 a Summit Avenue woman was entering her residence bringing in groceries when she felt a sting on her lower calf. She said she did not hear or see anything at the time. The next day she located a yellow BB in her flowerbed that possibly hit her calf and caused severe bruising.
• Road rage was all too real on Aug. 25 at about 12:40 p.m. when one driver pointed a gun at another driver.
The incident occurred on U.S. 52 between Old Highway 52 and Montague Planation Road. The victim was traveling in the left lane when a white Honda Accord approached him from behind at a high rate of speed. The victim moved to the right lane.
As the Honda pulled up beside him its driver rolled down the window and started yelling obscenities. The victim yelled back and the suspect pulled out what appeared to be a black handgun and pointed it at the victim. The victim attempted to follow the suspect to get his tag number, but lost him after the chase exceeded 90 mph on Old Mt. Holly Road.
• On Aug. 18 at about 6:30 p.m. an Old Jackson Road man, his pregnant wife and another female were walking their dog on a leash on the sidewalk. They walked by one house and a white boxer dog charged and attacked their dog. While trying to separate the dogs both women were bitten on their hands.
They were both transported by EMS to a medical facility. The dog’s owner said her boxer was unrestrained in the backyard, which is not fenced in. She was issued a $1,092.50 citation for lack of animal restraint.
• A Wilberry Lane man who had recently moved to the area form Florida left his garage door open by accident the night of Aug. 19 when more than $3,000 in audio equipment was stolen. The missing items include: a three disc karaoke machine, a studio microphone with a show mount, two cordless microphones, a 500 watt amp, a 400 watt amp, a voice stabilizer, eight speakers, a head unit CD player and a subwoofer.
