Vehicles, building with bullet holes

Several people in the Clay Pond area called the police close to 9 p.m. May 14 saying they’d heard gun shots, an Horry County police report from that date said.

A description of a possible suspect vehicle was also given, and the officer stopped a vehicle matching that description.

The report said the vehicle was not related to the shooting, but the driver was able to provide more information about the shooting.

The officers canvassed the area and found multiple vehicles in the parking lot that had bullet holes.

One was a Ford Mustang; another was a Lincoln Continental and the third was a Ford Expedition.

A GMC Acadia that was across the street was also hit with bullets.

There were also multiple bullet holes in the siding in the front of the building.

Several spent casings were on the sidewalk.

Time to move out

A 60-year-old Emerald Lakes man reported that he was physically assaulted by the 35-year-old daughter of his live-in girlfriend, a May 12 report said.

The victim wanted a report about the incident filed, and said that he would seek to evict the suspect, who has lived in the victim’s home for the last 10 months.

Fake $100 bill

A $9.17 12-pack of Bud Light was purchased with a counterfeit $100 bill at the Circle K on Carolina Forest Boulevard, a May 13 report said.

According to the report, the suspect, who the complainant said is a frequent customer, had several $100 bills in his pocket.

The report said the complainant did ask the suspect, who “stood around and carried on a conversation,” if the bill was fake.

It is not known if the suspect knew the bill was fake.

Theft at Publix

A video the manager at Publix showed an officer “clearly caught” a suspect reach into the cash drawer after it was opened when she asked for change for a large bill, a May 9 report said.

The suspect folded an unknown amount of bills under a larger stack and put it into her pocket before giving some bills back to the cashier, the report said.

The report also said the cash register was short more than $100, but it was not known if this incident was the sole cause.
