Crime in the Creek
The following incidents were obtained from Goose Creek Police Department incident reports:
• On Aug. 30 an officer arrived at a Foxborough Road residence where a woman reported vandalism to her vehicle.
The victim said on July 1 she purchased the 2001 BMW from a friend. She said on Aug. 23 she began having engine trouble. About a week later her mechanic told her there was foreign material in the fuel.
The victim removed most of the fuel from the tank and showed the officer a jar containing some of the fuel. The officer observed what appeared to be oil in the fuel sample. The victim said the tank fueling point is accessible from outside the vehicle and there is no lock on the cap.
The damage is believed to be about $500.
• At about 7:15 a.m. on Sept. 3 a superintendent from a Charleston construction company called police after realizing a power generator and air compressor were stolen from a storage shipping container on the construction site over the holiday weekend.
The theft occurred sometime between Aug. 31 and Sept. 3 at First Avenue in Carnes Crossroads. The hinges holding the container lock were cut.
In a previous incident at 2:45 p.m. on Sept. 2 an officer responded to the tree line off U.S.-17A in reference to a found air compressor. It was taken to the GCPD sally port. The air compressor matches the description of the one stolen from First Avenue. The complainant was asked to respond to the police department to identify and possibly claim the compressor.
