BLOTTER O’ the Week:
On April 4, a man reported that his vehicle had been broken into and several things had been stolen, including a $300 computer hard drive and three CDs. Upon opening the car door, the officer noted the strong odor of cigarette smoke,but the victim said he doesn’t smoke. Hey, Camel may have fired him, but Joe Camel still needs to pay the bills.
On April 4, a man was caught trespassing in a downtown parking garage. When asked for identification, the man gave the officer court papers from a previous arrest for trespassing in another parking garage. As the officer was reading the document, the man asked “if he could get one last smoke in before going to jail,” and pulled a crack pipe out and put it to his mouth. Well, I guess the cop would have found it anyway and it was polite to ask first.
The In No Way Perverse, Yet Somehow Perverted Comment O’ the Week:
“Man I will never hold anyone’s package again.”
A fellow recently arrested for possession with intent to distribute told police that he had been visiting this girl that night and that the pants he was wearing weren’t his and he didn’t know whose they were. Now that’s a party.
A man reported that his locker had been robbed at a local gym. Items stolen included a pair of $700 Gucci black loafers and a $120 Coach black belt. Well, let’s hope it was Al Parish … those outfits of his, ugh!
A local sub shop owner reported that $160 was missing from the register and a certain employee hadn’t reported for work the next day. Let’s see, with the cost of gas these days, she either made it to Georgetown or Walterboro.
The Blotter is taken from City of Charleston police department reports. We’ve added a cartoon and a little commentary. We’ve added a little humor, too. No one has been found guilty. This is not a court of law.
