Police Blotter: Teens say pet goat was beat to death
A Georgetown woman said she received a baby goat for Christmas but it had been staying at the home of a neighbor while she constructed a pen for the pet.
In early February she was informed the goat had an allergic reaction to something and had died.
The woman believed that story until recently when she was told by her daughter and others the goat had been killed.
The woman said she was told teenagers had beaten the goat to death with a cinder block and then buried the animal.
The report says because the woman was upset about the death of her pet, her daughter did not tell her what really happened until this week.
The matter is still being investigated.
Possible rape investigated
The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office is trying to determine if a 41-year-old Murrells Inlet woman was raped.
A deputy was sent to Oyster Shell Landing in Murrells Inlet early March 23 where he found the woman on the back seat of an SUV. She was wrapped in a blanket and was wearing only a bra and underwear which were torn.
The woman said she did not know how she got there. She said she had been at a bar drinking with a man she only knew as Tony.
She said he bought her a beer and after she drank it she felt strange. She said Tony gave her a ride from the bar and she remembers they stopped at a convenience store but she does not recall anything that happened after they left the store.
A victim’s advocate was called to the scene and the woman was transported to the hospital where a rape test was conducted.
Lying to police
A 21-year-old woman from Chinaberry Place was charged with filing a false police report March 18.
The woman reported her vehicle had been stolen and wrecked a short distance away from her home.
The deputy who responded talked to both the suspect and her roommate about the alleged car theft and noticed holes in their stories, the report states.
After warning the women about it being a crime to file a false police report, the suspect’s roommate told the deputy it was her brother who took the vehicle and wrecked it and the car was never stolen.
The suspect was warned three times about lying to police but, the report states, she “repeatedly lied” so she was arrested.
No more shortcuts to the course
An 86-year-old man is accused of trespassing on property in the 600 block of Linden Circle in Pawleys Island after being warned to stay away.
The complainant lives across from the suspect and said he has had problems with him walking on his property while trying to get to the golf course.
He said he recently saw the suspect looking in the windows of his home.
The complainant said he did not want to press charges but wanted the man placed on legal trespass notice.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
