Weekend Crime Reports

FAKER MONEY MAKER: A male subject was caught trying to use two fake $50 bills at Wings-n-Things last Saturday. The faker gave the officer a false name along with an the additional $250 worth of counterfeit bills in his possession. Two pistols were also found in the suspect’s car with the serial numbers filled off. Someone needs to keep it Real.

CHEATERS: Apparently around 1 a.m. at Panini’s last Sunday, four men held a woman back while another female punched the victim in the face several times. The victim claims she didn’t known the suspects or why they did this to her. Talk about an unfair fight! Pick on someone by yourself.

TOUGH GUY: At 2:35 a.m. on Sunday morning, officers responded to Beaufort Memorial Hospital where they met with a 24-year-old man who was reportedly stabbed at Encore Night Club on Burton Hill Road. The victim was uncooperative with investigators regarding the details of what occurred. Although the injury did not appear to be life threatening, the attack on the victim’s life sure seems to be a threat.

PURSE PICKIN: Last Friday a woman was loading her car with her groceries when a teenage suspect grabbed her purse out of the cart and took off. Hopefully the victim will not have to resort to stealing a turkey out of someone else’s grocery cart and making a run with it.
