Fort Mill Times

Police blotter - April 29, 2009

Weapon charge

A 16-year-old Fort Mill student is accused of bringing a razor to school, according to a report from the Fort Mill Police Department.

No one was hurt with the razor, Principal Dee Christopher said.

The razor was discovered April 21 at Fort Mill High School at 225 Munn Road, Christopher said.

"We were informed about it," he said. "We did a search, and we found it in the student's purse. There was no indication of why she had it with her."

The Fort Mill Times does not release the names of juveniles who have been arrested unless they are charged as adults.

School district policy mandates that students who bring weapons on school grounds or to school functions can potentially be expelled for the reminder of the school year or referred to Fort Mill Academy, Christopher said.

Man faces kidnapping, domestic violence charges

A 30-year-old Fort Mill man faces multiple charges after police said he held a woman against her will in an apartment, according to a report from the Fort Mill Police Department.

Authorities on April 23 charged Dantrell Antonus Simmons of Archie Street with kidnapping, criminal domestic violence and possession of Hydrocodone in connection to an incident that happened earlier this month.

Police on April 17 responded to an Archie Street apartment, where a 28-year-old woman told police that she had been out running errands and returned to her apartment when Simmons asked her to go to the store for him. The report notes the woman told Simmons that she was tired and did not feel like going to the store and that Simmons became angry and pushed her. The report also notes that Simmons would not let her leave the apartment and threw her down on the bed by the hair and choked her.

Simmons also told the woman that killing her and himself was the only way that she was going to get him out of her life before he let her leave to go to the store. Simmons was not at the apartment when police arrived.

Simmons, whose bond tops $20,000, remained in custody Monday evening at the York County Detention Center.

Medication theft investigated

A Fort Mill woman told police Sunday that her estranged husband may be coming to her apartment and stealing her prescription medication, according to a York County Sheriff's Office incident report.

About seven to nine of her 20-milligram Oxycontin and 10 to 15 of her Oxycodone pills were taken from a lock box she keeps on her book shelf. No damage was made to the front door and no apparent damage was visible on the lock box, the report said.

The woman told police her estranged husband may have a key to her apartment but she doesn't know how he got it. She said she wasn't sure why he would take some of the pills and not all of them. She also advised police that in the past her husband has been allowed to come to the apartment to wash his clothing.
