Deputies responded to a call at The Ponds about a possible burglary at the Farmhouse.

They spoke to a resident of the neighborhood who had rented the Farmhouse for a party.

The resident said she went by the Farmhouse on Aug. 23 and everything looked to be in order.

The next morning when she returned, she said, she tried the alarm pad, discovered there was no power, and on further investigation discovered the back door forced open, a window open, and several other doors broken into as well.

Deputies observed that the wires to the keypad were cut.

Deputies subsequently spoke to a representative of the developer, who said the adjacent building, which houses the developer’s sales office, was also broken into and was missing several items, including two laptop computers and a digital camera.

Two wires leading to the sales office outside were found to be cut; the power was also off to both buildings.

Juvenile mayhem

A woman reported juveniles attempting to break into a vehicle near Beverly Drive in Ladson.

She told deputies she saw the juveniles pushing a wagon with a road cone in it in front of her home when one of them walked to her car and tried to enter it. She said she went outside and yelled at them and they ran away.

Deputies found the juveniles; they immediately stated they weren’t doing anything and had found the cart with the cone. Furthermore, they said they were walking around asking if anyone needed their lawns mowed.

Deputies noted they had no lawn care equipment with them.

After further questioning, one juvenile said the others had forced him to go with them and he had entered a vehicle and taken a GPS unit. He said he didn’t want to keep it but one of the others told him to so they could sell it.

All the juveniles were turned over to the custody of their parents.


A Summerville man reported an unknown white male was jumping into back yards in the neighborhood and causing a disturbance.

The complainant said when one of his neighbors confronted the subject, he became verbally abusive and aggressive.

Deputies found the subject walking down White Avenue. They made contact and the subject began to speak randomly about topics that made no sense.

When asked if he had threatened anyone, the subject said he had not but would “get them in any way possible.”

The subject’s wife said the subject has been known to use illegal narcotics and lately has been acting “like a crack head.”

The subject said he has not been using but suspects that someone had secretly dosed him with something.

The subject was transported to Summerville Medical Center for further evaluation.
