The downtown library called police about a man disturbing patrons and staff. Police were able to identify the suspect because he was the only person in the library carrying a fishing rod.

Items Stolen This Week: Four GPS units, three laptops, three iPods, and three bikes.

A homeowner reported that his garage had been broken into. Items stolen included a case of beer and an answering machine. Good luck trying to find a tape for that machine.

Exchange O’ The Week: Officer: “I thought you said you were going home?” Suspect: “Nah, I said I’m going to my homeboy’s house in North Charleston.”

A woman told police that someone stole her black sequined clutch at a gentelmen’s club. We know only a handful of guys who could pull off toting that kind of purse — and none of them would be hanging out at a strip club.

Threat O’ The Week: “I am going to show up to your doorstep prepared.”

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.
