Entering and stealing
On Nov. 6 Summerville Police responded to a residence in South Pointe on Eastover Circle in reference to a burglary. The complainant told police his sleep apnea machine next to his bed had been moved. His wife then noticed her iPad was missing.
On further inspection the couple determined that two iPads were missing, two high school rings, a man’s Clayton Homes ring, a sapphire ring, an emerald ring, topaz ring, an onyx ring, engagement diamond ring, man’s wedding band, a sapphire ring and necklace set, a diamond cross necklace, ruby ring, diamond necklace, diamond pearl earrings and necklace set, a man’s watch, a Nintendo DS, a Dell laptop, a bottle of 20 hydrocodone pills and a bottle of 20 oxycontin pills.
Total value of the stolen goods is $19,000. There was no sign of forced entry but the homeowner demonstrated to police how easy it is to open the front door with a credit card.
Entering with violence
On Nov. 12, two black males forced entry into an apartment at Somerset Apartments in Summerville. Summerville Police responded to the report from the homeowner who said she locked herself in a bedroom and hid in her shower and called 911 when she saw the two enter her apartment. There was a small child asleep in the apartment at the time. The victim reported that the two men left on foot.
Police mounted a search and neighboring schools – Summerville High and Gregg Middle – went on modified lockdown as a precaution.
Nothing appeared to be missing said the victim.
