Lock your car!

Vehicles at the Lakes of Summerville were easy pickings Oct. 14-15. They were unlocked making it easy for thieves to steal myriad items including a cassette player, cigarettes and cell phone chargers, according to Summerville Police.

Another resident, however, came to discover his entire vehicle was missing after police found it in the water at Bushy Park in Goose Creek. The Berkshire County Sheriff’s Office found the car submerged under approximately five feet of water about 50 yeards from the boat landing.

The vehicle was valued at $15,000. A dive team had to respond to retrieve the vehicle. The resident said he had left it unlocked.

Don’t leave dogs out

Dorchester County Sheriff deputies were called Oct. 21 about a missing dog. The owner told police she had locked her dog outside in a cage overnight but that around 10:30 the following morning she noticed the lock was missing and the dog was gone. She contacted the SPCA and Animal Control to no avail. She told police she had searched the neighborhood.

On Oct. 22 she called again to report the dog had returned to the back yard but could not walk up the stairs. The dog had blood in its groin area. She told police she was taking the dog to the vet to find out what was wrong.

Lock your windows

A woman called Summerville Police on Oct. 18 to report that while she was in the shower, she heard her dogs barking. When she turned off the water she heard banging downstairs. She called 911. When police arrived they discovered the screen on the kitchen window had been removed and the window was open.

A medicine cabinet was open and the television in the living room had been moved. Neighbors told police that they had seen a black male with a “high and tight haircut with curly hair on top” riding a bicycle around the area.

The victim reported that in August someone had stolen her cigarettes off her back porch and in mid-September, someone had stolen her son’s bike.
