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.
Blotter Stupid Confession O’ The Week: “That is my weed!”
On August 16, police were searching a house for an armed robbery suspect. Eventually, the man poked his head into the light of the kitchen and said, “I give up!” Doesn’t he know that hide and seek is much more fun if you play along?
The security supervisor of a West Ashley home supply store noticed a man remove three pocket knives from their packaging and conceal them in his pants on August 14. Compensating for anything, buddy?
Blotter Threat O’ The Week: “You better call the police for what I’m going to do to you.”
A man was leaving a bar near Meeting Street when a man approached him asking for food. The man said, “I won’t buy you food, but I’ll buy you some beer.” They both went into a nearby gas station, where the man purchased two 24-ounce cans of Miller High Life. After turning on Mary Street, outside of the store, the man hit the good Samaritan over the head, punched him eight times, kicked him in his ribs, and stole $100 from his wallet. Maybe he did just want food after all.
