Crime in the County

  • Wednesday, March 5, 2014

The following incidents were obtained from Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office reports:

A deputy responded to a convenience store in Cross at about 7:20 a.m. on Feb. 25 after someone vandalized a security camera. The complainant showed the deputy a video recording of a male knocking down a surveillance camera with his cane. The impact destroyed the camera lens. The camera is valued at $200.

On Feb. 21 at about 5:30 a.m. a deputy was dispatched to Black Tom Road where he met with the Whitesville Fire Department. A concerned citizen called to say an SUV was on fire in the woods. The fire department extinguished the fire. The vehicle was a Kia SUV that had been completely burned in the woods near the road. The deputy was unable to determine if the vehicle was reported stolen. The company that towed the vehicle was able to find the last few numbers of the VIN and matched it to a vehicle that was stolen in Dorchester County. The vehicle was listed as stolen in NCIC at about 9:30 a.m. The owner had reported the vehicle stolen at about 9 a.m.

On Feb. 21 a deputy and a Moncks Corner Police Department officer responded to an abandoned van found in the woods near Cross. The vehicle had been reported stolen from a car dealership in Moncks Corner. The detective identified the van as the stolen one upon seeing it based on a detailed description. The vehicle was towed.

On Feb. 21 at about 11:15 a.m. a woman called a deputy who responded to a gas station off Cypress Gardens Road. The woman said her ex-husband was chasing her down U.S.-17A until she arrived at the gas station. She said he was screaming at her and following her at speeds close to 100 mph. The woman said she wanted the incident documented.
