Armed robbery
A North Charleston man reported that he was driving from a friend’s home when he received a phone call from another person. He said he pulled into a parking lot in front of the Little Caesar’s on Bacons Bridge Road and while he was parked there talking on the phone an unknown black male subject armed with a revolver approached his vehicle and demanded his wallet. He said the subject struggled with his car radio for a moment as well before fleeing the area.
Officers note that the complainant smelled of alcohol. They also found some pills on the passenger seat that the subject could not account for. The subject also noted that the subject did not take his cell phone.

Creep alert I
A Summerville woman reported that her daughter’s school bus driver has been harassing her daughter. She said the driver has repeatedly made sexually oriented comments to the girl. He also slowed his driving as he approached her stop to prevent her from exiting the bus and didn’t immediately open the doors when he came to a stop. When she got off the bus, the complainant said the driver stayed stopped and watched her walk toward the house.
The complainant said she spoke to the school district and it is her understanding that the driver has been removed from service. She also reported the incidents to the School Resource Officer.

Creep Alert II
A Ladson man reported that an unknown male subject sent a nude picture of himself to the complainant’s daughter. The man said his daughter never saw the picture, but that it depicted a male nude from the waist down. The man said he called the number and briefly spoke to the subject, who told the complainant he was 18 years old. The man says he does not know who the subject is.

A Summerville woman reported that someone removed the back door of Spell’s Grocery from its hinges and damaged the doorframe to break into the building and stole a cash register. Officers found a trail of coins leading from where the cash register was inside and followed it outside to the side of the building, where they found it lying on the ground next to a paper bag with a beer bottle in it.
After officers did a sweep of the building, they had the woman inventory the inside. She told them a large safe containing two handguns and $1,000 cash was missing. She also said that a couple of bottles of bleach and an unknown quantity of beer was missing as well. In addition, a stack of money orders was missing.
There is no alarm or video surveillance system on the building. Officers were able to gather some evidence, including several latent fingerprints. The case is under investigation.
