An officer on patrol in Hitch Village came upon a vehicle that had been damaged. The windshield had been shattered, and there was still glass on the hood and on the ground around the car. The letters HVP had been spray painted on the drivers and passengers side doors and on the trunk, and the letters RIP had been painted on the hood. The vehicle was not occupied and the owner could not be located, so a case report number card was left on the windshield.
Officers were called to a Miliken Street address in reference to an abandoned vehicle. Upon investigating, they discovered the engine and transmission had been removed from the car and the steering column had been stripped. When the tag was run, the vehicle came back as stolen from Beaufort, S.C. The vehicle was towed.
After being stopped for operating a bicycle at night, a man also was charged with possession of drug-related items. The man was stopped at the intersection of Ann and Bryan streets. When asked if he had any possible weapons or sharp objects on him, the man replied that he did. When the officer removed the items, he discovered a glass tube with a filter believed to be a crack pipe. The officer also found a pocket knife and a pair of scissors, which the man said he uses to make flowers on River Street.
