Crime in the County
The following incidents were obtained from Berkeley County Sheriff's Office reports:
• Deputies assisted the U.S. Marshall's Office on the service of a warrant to a St. Stephen resident on July 2 to a man who is also wanted by BCSO.
The subject left his Crest Lane residence in a red Honda. Upon seeing the marked patrol vehicles the subject made an abrupt stop in the road, made an illegal U-turn and attempted to flee the area at a high rate of speed. The vehicle was found abandoned in the roadway on Upton Road, where a deputy observed the male subject running into the woods.
A canine was used in the search but deputies were unable to locate the subject.
• A deputy met with a man from a repossession company who said a 2000 Nissan Altima was repossessed June 27 and taken to the lot on Precast Lane. On July 2 the complainant contacted a deputy and showed him surveillance footage of an unknown black vehicle approaching at about 8 p.m. on June 28.
One subject approached the Altima and both vehicles drove off. The Altima's VIN was entered into NCIC.
• A Sugar Hill Drive man reported on July 2 that an unknown female in a white car drove by his house and yelled that she was going to call animal control on his horses.
• A Waterloo Drive man reported on July 1 that his vehicle's battery was stolen from his Ford Ranger. He said he parked the vehicle on June 29 at 7:30 p.m. and went to check the oil at about 11 a.m. on July 1, when he noticed the battery was missing after he lifted the hood.
The battery is valued at $100.
• A Bonneau woman reported half of a chain-link dog kennel and four old bicycles were missing the morning of June 29. Later that day she told deputies she found the kennel and the bicycles in a yard a few houses down from hers.
She spoke with neighbors and learned at about 3 a.m. someone in the neighborhood saw kids riding bicycles and dragging the kennel on the street behind them. When the witness asked what they were doing the kids hopped off the bicycles and ran.
• An Orangeburg woman was in a club in Cross when a Cross man followed her outside the club and was being forward with her. When she refused his advances repeatedly the subject became angry and threw her across the front of the club. The subject then punched her in the face, causing her to lose her tooth, which she had wrapped in a napkin when deputies arrived.
She requested medics, who looked her over, but she refused to be taken to the hospital. The report lists the name and address of the suspect.
