Boys say they were harassed by man looking for pot
Two Fort Mill boys, ages 13 and 12, told police a man accused them of stealing his marijuana and made them empty their pockets as he searched for it, according to a Fort Mill Police report.
The boys were feeding turtles at a pond off Kingsley Parkway Sunday evening when the man accused them of taking his pot, the boys told police. He continued to harass them and stopped them every time they tried to leave the area.
Eventually, the boys were able to get away from the man unharmed, walk home and call police. They described the man as a black male in his 30s wearing a white muscle T-shirt, blue jeans, a black hat and sunglasses. Police could not locate him.
TV, computer stolen in burglary
A Fort Mill woman reported a burglary at her home that resulted in the apparent theft of her TV and laptop computer, according to a Fort Mill Police report.
The woman told police her home on Rocky Trail Court was burglarized last week while she was having surgery in Charlotte. When she returned home she noticed the TV and laptop missing. The locked front door was also unlocked, she said. The woman believes the intruder may have gained access to the home through an unlocked back door. The missing items are valued at $725.
Disabled car stolen from I-77
A Fort Mill woman told authorities her car was stolen from the shoulder of I-77 last week, according to a York County Sheriff’s Office report.
The woman said she was driving along the highway on April 30 when she suffered a flat tire and had to pull off the road near Gold Hill Road. She found a ride home and returned the next day to retrieve the disabled vehicle. But when she returned to the scene, the car was gone, the report states. The woman called authorities and determined the vehicle was not towed by police or highway patrol. Investigators are treating the case as a theft, the report states. The car is described as a beige and brown 1998 BMW 528i sedan. Reports of all felonies and any major misdemeanors are compiled weekly from local law enforcement agencies. Charges do not necessarily result in a conviction, and people who are arrested are innocent until proven guilty.
