— The owner of Freeman’s Dry Cleaning in Rock Hill reported to police on Monday that more than $2,000 worth of propane tanks, bed frames and other items were stolen from the business sometime last week.

The business owner told police he recently received several phone calls from a man who asked if he could clean up items stored behind the building for free, according to a Rock Hill Police report. The owner refused and told the man he was trespassing on the property at 117 Lancaster Ave.

When the owner checked on his business on Sunday, he discovered that a 500-gallon oil drum, a 90-pound propane tank, five metal bed frames and a propane boiler control panel were missing, the report states.

Three days before the alleged theft, the owner of a nearby iron works company called police and reported seeing three suspicious people behind Freeman’s Dry Cleaning. When officers arrived, the suspects had already fled but the business owner was able to give them the license tag of the car.

No arrests have been made.
