POLICE BLOTTER: Disturbing discovery
A woman who drives a bus for the Salvation Army in Georgetown called police Saturday morning.
She said when she got on the bus she saw someone had been on the bus and had a bowel movement in the aisle.
The woman said there was no forced entry onto the bus because the door does not lock.
While on foot patrol at about 1 a.m. Saturday, a police officer heard yelling and screaming coming from a bar in the 200 block of North Meriman Road.
The officer saw a fight taking place and called for backup as he tried to separate the fighters.
One person ó a 32-year-old man from North Charleston ó had a cut on the side of his head.
It was discovered he had been hit with a beer bottle.
The man refused medical treatment. He was too drunk to identify any suspects but the ones believed to have been involved were warned to stay away from the bar.
Georgetown police responded to the 2300 block of Old Charleston Road May 6. They met with a man who said his estranged wife stole personal documents from his truck.
He said the vehicle was parked in the driveway when the thefts occurred.
He said the items taken were receipts and quotes he uses for his business and a folder containing money order stubs used to document his child support payments.
There was no proof the manís wife took the papers, the report states.
The man said he feels she is responsible because the documents may be of value to her during their divorce proceedings.
An officer called the woman while at her husbandís house but she hung up after the officer identified himself.
Theft from boat
Police met with a Georgetown man May 10 who said someone stole items from his boat that was docked off Wood Street.
He said a pair of binoculars and a flashlight were taken.
A woman from the 200 block of East Bay Street reported the theft of five sterling silver utensils.
She said someone came into her home within the past two weeks and took the items.
She said she began to check her house after discovering three cigarettes were missing from a pack in her bedroom.
The woman told police she has a strong suspicion her neighbor may be responsible.
Even though the woman has numerous silver utensils on display in her home, only five were taken.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
