BLOTTER O’ the Week:
A man reporting a home burglary noted that the items missing included his TV, computer, and wall-mounted fish, which will likely be returned … unless it’s the one that sings.
Good Samaritan O’ the Week:
A man stole a tip jar from a downtown restaurant and fled down the street. An employee chased after the suspect, prompting an ever-so-helpful pedestrian to warn the man, “He’s coming after you.”
Unusual Find O’ the Week: 12 class rings
A man walked into a convenience store and stole a 12-pack of Miller High Life, valued at $6. Later that same night, at another convenience store, a man stole a 12-pack of Heineken, valued at $15. Maybe he realized that he could afford an upgrade since he wasn’t paying.
A manager of a downtown pizzeria preparing to open for business came out of the back room to find a man leaning over the register with his hand in the drawer. The manager asked what the man was doing, to which he replied, “I didn’t know the drawer was going to pop open.” The suspect grabbed the money and fled the scene. The suspect was later caught and told that he was being charged for stealing $129. To that he said, “I didn’t take no $129, it might have been $75.” Apparently the new threshold between thievery and borrowing is $75. Who knew?
Threat O’ the Week:
“We will start some shit in your area!”
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.
