Burglars getting bolder

  • Wednesday, May 29, 2013

 
On May 13, a man called the Dorchester County Sheriff to report that someone had broken in to his new home, which he was in the process of moving into. The homeowner found the front door unlocked but found the window next to the back door completely shattered and a new lock and dead bolt on the back door. His keys did not work in them. He also found a notice taped to the inside of the front door stating that the residence had been secured by “National Field Representatives.”
However, the homeowner called the number listed on the notice and was told the company had not had anyone at the residence nor did the real estate agent know anything. Police processed the scene for latent prints.
In a different incident, Summerville Police responded to a burglary in Chandler Village on Beverly Drive. The victim had just put her baby to bed for a nap when she heard odd knocking sounds. Thinking it was the washing machine, she ignored them.
A few minutes later she and her two-year-old heard them again and she went to investigate. Upon opening a door in the garage, near where the washing machine and her husband’s recording studio is located, she observed items strung about the floor and the outer door to the driveway open. She ran out to the drive and observed an older style, dark colored, Chevrolet Caprice with two males speeding off.
The only item stolen was a Sony camcorder valued at $320.
