A Summerville man reported that someone stole his Bersa .380 caliber pistol from his house on White Boulevard.
The man said two acquaintenances, a man and woman he met through a mutual friend, came by the house about 6 p.m. one evening.
The woman asked to use his restroom, which he consented to do and allowed her into his residence.
He further stated that the woman took longer than usual in the bathroom. The two subjects then said they had to return the car they were driving to the female’s father, and they left. A short time later, the complainant noticed the gun missing, he said.
The complainant described the male subject as in his 30s, 5’9” tall, 220 pound, bald, and sporting a tattoo of some numbers on his neck.
He described the female as 5’5” tall, very skinny and slightly younger looking than the male.
The complainant further stated that the two had been to his residence on a prior occasion, but no issues had resulted from that visit.
The vehicle they were driving was described as a dark-colored sedan.
A Summerville woman reported that while she was sitting in the parking lot of a grocery store on Central Avenue, she saw two black males in a BMW and two white males in a Mazda get into a fight.
The woman reported that while they were fighting she saw a large amount of “weed” fly into the air.
A few moments later, the subjects stopped fighting, got into their cars, and left the area. She then called the police.
Officers arrived on the scene and swept up a small quantity of green leafy plant material and placed it in a bag as evidence.
Officers responded to a call about a possible Criminal Domestic Violence incident.
When they arrived, they spoke to the complainant who stated that her live-in boyfriend of many years had robbed her earlier.
She said she had received a loan earlier in the day to buy a new car and put $980 of it into her bra.
She further stated that the subject pulled and snapped her bra and took the money out of it, then threw oher on the couch before her brother confronted him and made the subject give the money back.
The subject threw a wad of bills back at her and upon counting it realized there was only $740.
The complainant said the subject probably took the money to buy drugs, that he has a crack habit, and that he was high when the incident took place.
