Dorchester County deputies were called to Grapevine Road, in Summerville Jan. 28 for a report of an animal attack. The complainant told police that two large tan dogs, running loose, had attacked his tiny Chihuahua and then run into the woods in the 200 block of Renau Road.
Further, his wife was knocked down trying to get the Chihuahua out of the other dogs’ mouths. The wife had a large contusion on her elbow and was tended to by EMS.
Deputies called in the Animal Control Officer who spoke with the dogs’ owner. The owner turned the dogs – two wolf-hybrids – to animal control and was issued with citations. The Chihuahua was taken to the vet to be checked out.
Lying doesn’t work
Summerville Police were called to the Quality Inn on Jan. 30 for a fight in progress. On arriving they were directed to Room 109 where they found an open door with five people inside the room. One had a very red face and told police he had been sprayed with pepper spray but declined to identify who had sprayed him or press charges.
The other four identified themselves, and officers ran all names through NCIC. However one name did not come back.
The officer asked again for the woman’s name and date of birth and he received the same name but a different date of birth. That resulted in a photo from NCIC. Once again, the officer asked for the woman’s real name and this time she told him her real name. She told the officer she had lied and given him her sister’s name because she was wanted by the Goose Creek Police. She was arrested and charged with Giving False Information to Police and held on the Goose Creek warrant.
Summerville Police were dispatched to the Econo Lodge Feb. 1, for a stolen television. There was a note in the room that read: “It was very downgrading to know y’all would have given someone a room that doesn’t have a TV in it. No TV, no tip.”
The cleaning staff told police that when the room was cleaned prior to the last occupant, the TV was there.
