Open door, dog hair on bed investigated



A deputy responded to a report of a burglary in the 2200 Block of Lake Marion Shores Road in Summerton March 7. A woman was checking her mother's residence while her mother was in the hospital and called 9-1-1 after noticing an open door. A deputy cleared the house. The complainant said she didn't see anything missing but it looked like someone had been laying in the bed. An investigator who arrived at the scene noticed dog hair on the bed though the complainant said they did not have a dog. Complainant said she had found the door open three or four weeks earlier but waited to report it because nothing was missing.


An officer met with a complainant March 7, in the 1600 block of Fairfield Drive who reported his vehicle was stolen while she was at the Paxville Superette. She told the officer she went inside the store and when she came outside the 2000 Chevrolet pickup she was driving was gone. She told the officer she did not have a tag because she bought the vehicle three days earlier and her insurance information was in the truck. The truck was valued at $5,000.
