Officers responded to a call about a stolen vehicle from a pizza delivery store on North Main Street.
When they arrived, they spoke to the complainant, a delivery driver, who told them he had temporarily parked his vehicle at the side of the business with the keys in it and went inside to get his next delivery. When he came back out, the car was gone.
The complainant said he saw a suspicious looking bicycle parked near where his car had been parked that he did not see when he first arrived.
Officers lifted several fingerprints from the bicycle and impounded it.
Meanwhile, dispatch reported that someone traveling on eastbound Interstate 26 had reported seeing a pizza delivery car matching the description of the complainant’s vehicle driving recklessly in traffic.
The caller said he could not keep up with it because the driver was traveling at a very high rate of speed.
The complainant described his car as an “old patrol car” white Crown Victoria with beige interior and a spotlight at the driver’s side. It still had the pizza delivery emblem on the roof when it was stolen.
A Summerville man reported that he placed an advertisement on the website craigslist.com to sell his cell phone.
He said a buyer contacted him and they arranged to meet at the Walmart on North Main Street in Summerville to make the transaction.
The complainant said his buyer paid him with two $100 bills. However, when the complainant returned to his home, he said he discovered that both bills were counterfeit.
The complainant described the subject as a black male about six feet tall and weighing about 250 pounds, with a gold tooth in the front of his mouth and brown dreadlocks and wearing black shorts with a red stripe down the side.
The complainant had no further information about the subject.
Officers were dispatched to an address on North Gum Street in reference to someone possibly falling from a second story window.
When they arrived they found the subject lying on his back on a bench covered in blood and empty beer bottles, with a very deep cut on one arm and smelling of alcohol.
An officer made a makeshift tourniquet to slow the bleeding until EMS arrived; the subject was airlifted from Heritage Square to an area hospital.
