Crime in the Creek
The following incidents were obtained from Goose Creek Police Department incident reports:
• Police responded to a disturbance in the middle of Redbank Road near the railroad tracks just before 6 p.m. on Sept. 14.
An officer saw a silver, 2002 Ford Explorer with paper tags and its hazard lights on. Two females exited the vehicle and approached a man in a black Ford Mustang on foot. They began yelling at the Mustang driver as they kicked his tires and hit the vehicle with their open hands. The female driver and her juvenile daughter were both causing danger to the public for stopping in the roadway and exiting their vehicle, causing alarm and disorder.
The woman yelled obscenities at the male driver, continuing to cause chaos and not listening to the officer’s orders to calm down. She told the officer she was upset because the male gave another woman a ride. The male driver told the officer the woman is his live-in girlfriend of 11 years and she was accusing him of cheating on her with another woman. He said he was just dropping the woman off at a house on Rutt Lane.
As the officer was interviewing the man, the female driver’s daughter threw a 24-ounce Bud Light can from the passenger window of the Explorer. The woman and her daughter were still yelling and screaming out of the car window in the middle of the roadway. They were both placed under arrest for disorderly conduct.
• A Goose Creek man said he was leaving a bar off St. James Avenue on Sept. 25 when he was robbed at gunpoint. He said due to his intoxicated state he did not know who robbed him. He said $20 may have been taken.
The man said he was forced to smoke some sort of illegal drugs by the alleged armed robbers at an unknown location. Officers arrived to the call at about 5 a.m. It is not know when the alleged armed robbery occurred. Medics arrived and said he needed to go to the hospital due to a possible drug overdose. The man told officers he is new to the area.
His vehicle was found in the bar parking lot in a handicapped parking space.
• On Sept. 23 a Goose Creek woman reported that while she was at the doctor someone entered her residence and removed her pet turtle, a table lamp and miscellaneous clothing and snack food items. She said the residence was unsecure due to the front door lock being broken, and several windows were open. Neighbors told the officer there was a man looking through the trash at about 12:30 p.m. that day, but it did not seem abnormal and he was not near the house.
