Since November 2006, a 50-year-old woman has been receiving sexually explicit phone calls from several men who found her number posted in a few areas downtown as an advertisement for phone sex. One caller told her that he found her digits in a portable bathroom on a Laurens Street construction site. Thankfully, the ad was politically correct, as it was written in both English and Spanish.
On Feb. 24, a North Charleston woman notified police that her daughter, whom she allows to live in a West Ashley home that she owns, has been stealing items from the house. She found that a chest valued at $1,500 had been sold to an antique store, and a metal antique safe that had been mounted into the wall was removed and also sold. Hopefully now the woman tells her daughter to hit the Antiques Roadshow.
A man returned to his West Ashley home on Feb. 23 to find that his girlfriend had shattered two bay windows. Written in bold, black letters on the top half of the windows was, "Bitch fuck you" and "I hate you basterd." You know what they say ... hell hath no fury like a woman who can't spell.
On Feb. 24, a man walked into a downtown inn, took a laptop computer from behind the front desk, and when confronted by an employee, said, "I'm looking for the man to apply for a job." Then, realizing the jig was up, he dropped the computer and ran. And get this -- he didn't even leave his resume.
A man went to a West Ashley department store to see his wife, but things got heated when he grabbed her shirt and started yelling. She ran into the store's back room, but he followed her, pulling her hair. The woman got away through a back door and drove away. What was the argument about? The woman's husband accused her of having his wedding ring. We're still scratching our heads over that one.
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.
