Do you know where your purse is?
Summerville Police responded to Chick Fil A on North Main Street for a report of found property. The gentleman who called told the officer he had found a purse on the seat of the booth next to him. The purse was brown and held colored wallet. Inside the purse were some cards and money as well as a Chick Fil A receipt dated June 28 at 9:41 p.m.
The officer put the purse into an SPD evidence locker for safe keeping.
Big haul fizzle?
Summerville Police were dispatched to T.J. Maxx in Azalea Square for destruction of property and what appeared to be an attempted break-in. The garage door for deliveries had been bent back on the right side of the door shifting it off its track. No entry was gained.
Who’s your doctor?
Dorchester County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to CVS on Central Avenue at the request of the pharmacist. The pharmacist told police she had received a phone call from a male informing her that she would be receiving a call from his mother’s doctor with a prescription for his mother who had just moved in with him.
A few minutes later the pharmacist received a call from a man claiming to be Dr. Farmer. The man provided the correct state license number and requested a prescription of Vistaril and Norco for a female with a date of birth of 1948.
The pharmacist called Dr. Farmer to verify the prescription and was told the prescription was fraudulent. When the deputy spoke with Dr. Farmer he was told the prescription was fraudulent and that this was the sixth or seventh time someone had called in a fraudulent prescription using his state license number. Metro Narcotics Unit was notified.
