The Blotter is taken from reports filed with Charleston Police Department between June 1 and June 12.

Blotter of the week: A doorbell camera caught someone stealing two packages June 12 from a porch downtown containing paper towels and dog food. The stolen items amounted to $65, police said. Considering this economy, that’s a decent haul! 

​​Misreading the signs

An intoxicated male at a June 11 Sheryl Crowe concert at Credit One Stadium on Daniel Island tried to follow two women into the restrooms. Even after officers escorted him outside and tried to call him a cab, he still attempted to get back into the show. Officers booked him for public intoxication. He should have left when he was ahead.

Lost in translation

A man called the police June 12 to report the theft of four golf carts, a trailer, a floor jack and a wheel lock from his Folly work address. Upon arrival, police saw that the man’s white truck had been spray-painted with “Merry X-Mas” and “Happy B-day.” Police later arrested a woman for the theft. Wonder if she ever understood the concept behind “well wishes.”
