Police Blotter: Stolen truck burned
A deputy was requested to respond to a truck fire near the intersection of Pleasant Hill Drive and Canal Road July 1.
Flames could be seen coming from the Chevy truck that had been driven about a mile down the dirt road next to the IP Canal.
“It appeared someone had tried to drive the truck into the canal and it became stuck,” the report states.
The license tag number was registered to a McDonald Road woman who said the truck was stolen from her yard.
There are no suspects.
Money and silver thefts
A 36-year-old Georgetown man is listed as the suspect in two separate theft reports, both filed July 1.
In one of the cases, a man said the suspect — his son — made unauthorized withdrawals from his Bank of America account. The total amount taken was $409.
He said the withdrawals occurred at an ATM located at Francis Marion convenience store on Highway 701.
He said he believes his son took his debit card from his wallet without him knowing.
The other incident involves the theft of more than $5,000 worth of antique silver coins belonging to a man and woman from Kensington.
The woman said they have been collecting the coins for 21 years. Some of the coins dated back to the 1800s.
The victim said she did not know about the theft until she was informed by a neighbor the suspect had been selling them.
Also taken was a large ivory eagle valued at $500 and a $50 #1 mom charm.
The woman said she confronted the man and he admitted to the thefts but has not returned any of the coins.
Annoying screaming calls
The owner of Parabasic in Andrews says since early May an unknown female has repeatedly called his business from a blocked number.
Each time she calls she screams into the phone.
The phone company would not release information about the blocked number unless a police report was filed.
The report was filed and the man said he does want to prosecute. The case was turned over to an investigator.
Punched in the mouth
Deputies arrested a 53-year-old Plantersville man accused of attacking his girlfriend’s roommate July 2.
The woman said she and the man got into an argument over living arrangements. She said the man grabbed her by the hair and punched her in the mouth.
The man was charged with simple assault.
A man from the 100 block of Savannah Street said someone broke into his home while he was sleeping July 2.
He said a laptop computer, an undisclosed amount of money were taken.
The man says he sleeps with a C-Pap machine which is why he was not awakened by the noise.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
