Weekend Crime Reports

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: A juvenile was a bit overzealous at Lady’s Island Middle School this week. So much so that it landed him in the School Resource Officer’s custody. The reason? This middle school attendant was swearing up a storm and failing to obey the school staff members. Let’s hope this Juv-ey stays away from the daytime television.

IHOP OUT: A party of late-night restaurant goers stopped in the local IHOP for a round of pancakes. Either their meal was unsatisfactory (doubtful) or this group decided on the notorious “dine and dash” game. Perhaps another guess is that considering the group dashed from the restaurant at 3:50 a.m. that they simply forgot to pay their $39 bill. Either way, it’s another example that nothing good ever happens after last call.

WHAT’S HE DREAMING ABOUT?: An officer stopped to investigate a suspicious vehicle in the Burton Hill area. The car was parked in front of a closed business, and to the officer’s surprise the person inside the car had his eyes closed as well. This sleeping beauty also had an open beer in the console, along with a .45 caliber pistol hidden between the drivers seat … No really, what was this person dreaming about?

TIMES ARE HARD: The owner of a 2003 BMW convertible returned to her vehicle slightly after midnight, only to discover the top had been slashed and her purse stolen from the passenger floorboard. It doesn’t end there. The perpetrator committed teller fraud by using a credit car from the stolen handbag. Police are still waiting to receive details from where the card was used. On the other hand, our car owner has a new bag to buy.
