Don’t bring the phone!
A skater at the Summerville Skateboard Park reported to Summerville police that someone stole his cell phone that he had left on the bench while he was using the park. The GPS tracking led police to McDonalds where there was a group of youths. However when they were asked if they had the phone, they told police “no.” The phone was valued at $160.
Keep it with you
A shopper at Bi-Lo on Dorchester Road told Summerville police that she had left her wallet in her shopping cart when she used the bathroom and someone had stolen it. It contained $608 as well as the victim’s debit card and driver’s license. The wallet was worth $100 according to the victim.
Dorchester County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the Bridlewood Farms subdivision in Ridgeville on the report of a stolen horse. The horse is a six-foot tall brown, cast aluminum horse that was the trademark of the subdivision. Where the horse once stood were three broken off legs on the ground and a fourth still attached to the mounting plate. Police recovered a Powerade bottle and black visor which they took for processing. Deputies said it appeared a pick-up truck had backed in and pulled the horse over and into it before heading in the direction of Ridgeville.
