Building materials
At some point between June 1 and June 4, 35 pieces of 3/4-inch 4x8 plywood, worth about $1,000, were stolen from a residence under construction on Tortoise St., in Summerville.  Between 5 p.m. June 4 and 7:30 a.m. June 5, 12 boxes of vinyl siding were stolen from a residence under construction on Berwick Dr., in Summerville. Value of the materials is $1,176.
On June 5, a resident of Dahlia Place in the Robynwyn community, reported to police that her vehicle alarm began sounding and although when she looked she saw no one near the vehicle, when she later went outside, she discovered more than $1,000 worth of damage to it. The front panels were dented. Police say it appears someone had attempted to use jacks to lift the vehicle to steal the custom rims.
On June 7, on Tulip Street in Robynwyn, a resident called police to report that around 7:30 p.m., someone shattered the glass in the front door. No implement could be found and, as there was no other damage to the residence, police suggest a firearm may have been used. Damage estimated at $300.
Better off?
On June 2 police responded to a report of a stolen dog. The dog’s owner reported that his dog had gotten out and while searching the neighborhood, was told that a resident on the corner of the neighborhood had his dog. The owner spoke with the person who told him she had given the dog to a rescue person. She said she would try and contact the rescue person on Facebook to have the dog returned. Police spoke with the woman who said the dog had been running loose in the neighborhood, was underfed and flea ridden, leading her to believe it was a stray. The “rescue worker” has not responded to the Facebook request.
