The following incidents were obtained from Goose Creek Police Department reports:
• An officer responded to a domestic dispute at about 9 a.m. on Nov. 25 at a Madeline Drive residence. The victim said he and his longtime girlfriend had had prior domestic disputes, and his girlfriend has an active warrant with GCPD for criminal domestic violence. They got into a heated argument that morning. He called GCPD to prevent the argument from escalating. There was no physical contact between the two.
• At about 11:30 p.m. on Nov. 24 an 18-year-old Goose Creek man was arrested for shoplifting two bottles of wine from the Food Lion on College Park Road. The wine bottles, valued at about $10 each, were found stuffed in the waistband of his pants.
The store manager witnessed the subject take the bottles off the shelf, hide them under his shirt and leave the store without paying. An officer found the subject on the sidewalk nearby and asked what he was doing. He said he was waiting for a friend. The subject consented to a pat down, which is when the officer immediately felt two glass bottles in his waistband. The subject was arrested and taken to the detention center.
• A 14-year-old white male was arrested on Nov. 24 after stealing a pack of lighters, valued at $5, from the Bi-Lo on St. James Avenue. The manager saw the subject take and conceal the lighters, walk around the store and leave without paying. He was detained and the stolen property was found on him. The officer also found a knife, two packs of white grape cigarillos and about 2.5 grams of what appeared to be marijuana. The subject was arrested and charged with shoplifting, simple possession of marijuana and possession of tobacco by a minor.
