Charleston police on July 7 responded to a downtown call after several windows and doors were found missing from a construction site on Cooper Street.

Can he carry my groceries next?

North Charleston police on June 23 responded to a Rivers Avenue gas station after receiving a call about a man reportedly stealing three sandwiches, two Starbucks coffees and three cans of beer.

Two neighbors at a Highway 17 apartment complex have been dueling over a parking spot for weeks, according to Charleston police reports. One of the men attempted to reserve the spot by filling garbage bags in the space. On July 6, his neighbor moved the bags out of the way to park his car and later found the trash bags piled on top of his car.
