A loss of about $8,000 worth of equipment was reported by USA Plumbing after a trailer was stolen.
An Horry County police report said video showed a light-colored Honda CRV pull in, hook up to the trailer, and leave.
Criminal sexual conduct
A complainant reported that a Carolina Forest female, 13, who “was diagnosed with autism as well as several other social delays” said she engaged in consensual sex with an unknown suspect who was 16 or 17 years old.
The report said the victim agreed to sex with the suspect “so he would be her boyfriend.”
The victim is the complainant’s patient, the report said.
He needs to know
A complainant told an officer that Carolina Forest High School administrators were made aware that a female student had “possibly been touched inappropriately” by a student last year when the female attended Ten Oaks Middle School.
The report said the TOMS principal had already been notified, and that that school was conducting an investigation.
The victim and her mother agreed that no charges would be filed.
The victim said in the report that she didn’t want the suspect to get in trouble, she just wanted someone to let him know that what he was doing was inappropriate so that it did not continue with other girls.
