A Georgetown woman told a deputy a man she was trying to help beat a drug addiction stole prescription pills from her pocketbook Dec. 16.
The woman said she was going to an AA meeting with the man because of a heroin addiction. She said when she went inside her house, the man took her purse and walked to the car.
The next day she discovered between 50 and 60 Oxycodone pills had been taken from a medicine bottle that was inside her pocketbook.
She said she called the man in hopes he would return the pills but he "cussed her out" and she has had no further contact with him.
Woman's mail diverted
A 73-year-old Pawleys Island woman says someone fraudulently placed a change of address on her post office box.
The person who made the request said the woman's mail needed to be sent to a different location until Feb. 4.
The victim said she made the discovery Dec. 15 when she went to the post office and found her PO box was blocked.
The postmaster informed the woman the change was made Dec. 6.
On Dec. 18, a deputy met with the BiLo loss prevention manager regarding theft from the store by a 27-year-old worker.
The manager said the worker was caught on video not ringing up items for a customer. He said the video showed she rang some items up and passed others through without charging the customer.
When confronted by the manager, the cashier reportedly admitted she had an agreement with the female customer that she would give some items free because she is having money troubles.
It is believed the theft could have cost the store as much as $1,000.
The manager was told to contact the Sheriff's Office again if the store decided to press charges.
A 35-year-old man was taken to the emergency room and a 32-year-old man was arrested after an altercation in the 200 block of Whites Creek Road Sunday afternoon.
The two men were arguing when the younger man hit the older man on the head with a mechanic’s wrench, the report states.
The suspect was still in the house when deputies arrived.
The victim had a two-inch gash on his head.
The suspect was charged with assault and battery.
Fake cash for liquor
A fake $100 bill was used to make a liquor purchase at Gene's Country Store on Highmarket Street Dec. 8.
A worker said the store was busy, so when the 23-year-old man handed him the money, he did not check its authenticity. He said the cost of the purchase was nearly $12 so the man was given about $88 in change.
The worker said the man produced an ID in order to make the alcohol purchase.
The investigation continues.
A Southern Coastal Cable representative met with police Dec. 13 because of cable theft at an apartment building in the 900 block of Duke Street.
The worker said there had been a high number of service calls in the area and when he stopped at the Duke Street home he found the cable box had been broken into and there were numerous cables hooked up illegally.
One of the residents told police he did hook up the cable in his apartment because he wanted to watch television.
The cable worker said cable has been hooked up illegally at the apartment several times.
He said the company does want to press charges and would like restitution.
A warrant was prepared for the man's arrest.
Woman says phones hacked
A Greentown community woman told a deputy she believes her cell phones have been hacked.
She said for the past two years every time she is on the phone she hears a click and then hears a female and two male voices talking about whatever conversation she is having.
She believes her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend are responsible but the investigation is ongoing.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
