A deputy responded to a call on Cone Lane in Summerville in reference to juveniles attempting to gain entry to a residence.
The complainant spoke no English but the deputy was able to speak to her in Spanish. She stated that she was in her home when she heard juveniles on her property outside; she said she recognized them as next-door neighbors.
She said at first she did not tell them to leave, thinking they would leave on their own.
However, she soon heard them at the front door attempting to open it. They were unable to get it open so they left, but soon came back and tried the front door, again unsuccessfully.
A few minutes later, the complainant heard someone open a window in the kitchen and she saw one of them enter, take a cell phone from the kitchen table, and leave again. They came back a few minutes later and put the cell phone back on the kitchen table.
At this point, the complainant said she finally confronted one of the juveniles; two others soon came and demanded that she let the first juvenile go.
All of the juveniles were still there when deputies arrived on the scene.
Because she knew the juveniles, the complainant said she didn’t want to prosecute but did want their parents informed that the juveniles were no longer welcome on her property.
The deputies contacted the juveniles’ parents and informed them they needed to keep the juveniles from bothering the complainant.
The parents stated that they would discipline the juveniles for their actions.
A Summerville man reported that sometime between the end of December 2013 and June 2014 someone stole an air conditioning unit valued at $2,300 from outside a vacant residence he owns on Boonehill Road.
The complainant said he has been given a name of a suspect who may have stolen it and was allegedly observed selling it to a local metal recycling business.
The complainant said the unit was sold for scrap. The complainant said he would like to prosecute.
Deputies responded to an alarm at the Sunshine Food Store on Miles Road in Summerville.
When they arrived, they noticed a white male wearing a red shirt and dark shorts walking in the parking lot. The deputies made contact with the man, who told them he broke the window of the store because he wants to go back to prison.
He said he broke the window to the front door with a 25-pound dumbbell. He said he was trying to get inside so he could rob the store.
The owner arrived and said he wanted to press charges.
The subject was arrested and transported to the detention center.
