A Summerville man reported that he saw five black males dressed in black all lay their bicycles by his fence and walk into an adjacent apartment complex. He said it appeared they were attempting to check parked vehicles to see if they were unlocked. He said they then ran back to their bicycles and overheard one of them say he almost “had that sh***,” assuming they were talking about possible items in the cars.
He said he informed them the police were on the way and the group then got on their bicycles and fled down the street.
A teacher at Spann Elementary School reported that she had a substitute in her class for about two hours. When she returned to class, her students told her the substitute had used a cell phone to take photos of the teacher’s personal photos in the classroom. In addition, the students told her that the substitute wrote their first and last names on a piece of paper and put it in her pocket.
At some point, according to the students, the substitute called someone with the cell phone and told the person she called, “I took the pictures and will show them to you when I get home.”
The teacher reported this to school officials, who said that person would no longer substitute at Spann. The woman was questioned by school and law enforcement officials and denied taking pictures of the teacher’s pictures or writing down students’ names, but did say she shot a video of a hamster in another class and told her husband, via phone, that she was going to show him the video when she got home.
A Summerville woman reported that she was in her bedroom in her home when her dog started barking. She said she went to the back door to investigate and heard a noise in her back yard. She said she peered out the back door and saw an unknown black male in all black clothing standing near the back door. He saw her and fled in an unknown direction.
Officers attempted a canine track with negative results. There were no signs of forced entry to the residence.
