The Camden Police Department (CPD) arrested a Charlotte man Monday after he allegedly tried to carjack a vehicle a KershawHealth parking lot. A CPD incident report identified the arrested man as Shaquan Eric White, 21, of Charlotte. It said he arrived at the hospital by ambulance following a one-vehicle crash in Elgin.

White reportedly became unruly and belligerent with hospital staff members and attempted to leave the emergency room, allegedly shoving a security guard out of his way. Officers then reported that White went to the parking lot and approached a mother and daughter who were standing beside their cars. The mother blocked White from her car. He then allegedly demanded the daughter’s car and shoved her against it hard enough to cause visible damage to the vehicle. The woman’s 2-year-old child was in the vehicle, according to the report.

Hospital staff members were able to shield White from the car and the woman got in the vehicle, locked the doors and checked on her child, who turned out to be fine.

Officers reported White was uncooperative with them, taking a stance as if he wanted to fight until the arresting officer aimed his Taser device at White. As of Tuesday afternoon, online Kershaw County Detention Center records listed White in custody.

The CPD reported the following other incidents during the period of Jan. 13-19:

Someone stole 11,000 pounds of copper from a steel and metal company on King Street. An employee arrived for work Sunday and found a chain on the front gate had been cut. She told officers she checked surveillance video and saw at least four subjects -- at least two of whom appearing to be male -- enter the property and use a pallet box to remove approximately 10 bins of copper worth up to $45,000. The video showed the subjects may have used a large white sedan and large white box truck in the theft. Officers found footprints and tire tracks found at the scene and photographed them. They also provided a copy of the video to investigators.

Officers are also investigating a theft of equipment from the Kershaw County Recreation Department facility on West DeKalb Street. An employee told police two John Deere mowers and a 9-foot by 6-foot utility trailer had been taken from a fenced-in and locked area behind the old armory. The victim said the equipment was last seen Dec. 30, but was not discovered missing until Jan. 6. The report placed the items’ value at $26,500.

A Camden department store called officers after receiving suspected counterfeit $50 bills. A store employee said a man and woman bought $286 worth of merchandise and received $64.35 change in the transaction. Photographs and video of the incident were turned over to police.

Camden officers also assisted other agencies and dealt with four DUI and thefts; three assaults and trespassing; two public disorderly conduct; one burglary, driving under suspension, fraud, gas drive off, harassment, ID theft, prowler, shoplifting and recovery of a stolen vehicle.

The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) arrested a Camden man burglary charges after receiving a call of a break-in in progress.

A KCSO report said a deputy was dispatched to an east Camden thrift store where he found the suspect coming out of the business and saw a window was broken out of a door. The deputy detained the man, who admitted he had been inside the store. The owner arrived and said his cash register was missing. Deputies found the suspect’s car behind the building with its engine running. Inside, deputies found power tools, digital camera and grill; the store owner said the items were his.

Deputies also found several other landscaping tools which, according to a separate report, were reported stolen from a church on Malvern Hill Drive.

The KCSO reported the following other incidents during the period of Jan. 13-19:

The Kershaw County and Lancaster County sheriff’s offices are conducting a joint investigation of alleged criminal sexual conduct with a minor. The KCSO’s report of the incident said a 3-year-old Lancaster County girl visited her grandfather in Kershaw County and later told her parents he had molested her. She was taken to a Lancaster County hospital and investigators attempted to gather physical evidence. The investigation is ongoing; no arrest had been made as of Tuesday.

A woman accused her ex-husband of breaking into her home on Whistling Duck Cove on Jan. 13. The victim said her ex-husband had been at the home the previous day because she had allowed him to retrieve some property. When she arrived home around 5:30 p.m. Jan. 13, she noticed her car was not in the garage where it had been parked and found glass broken out of a back door. She reported two flat-screen TVs were gone -- along with the car.

Deputies arrested a 21-year-old Elgin woman Jan. 13 after she allegedly stabbed a man in the ear with a filet knife. The victim said his cousin and the suspect were arguing and she threatened to cut the victim’s car tires with the knife. When he attempted to intervene, she allegedly swung the knife and cut him.

A Lugoff man reported a four-wheeler was stolen from his Fort Jackson Road home Jan. 16. The victim said the four-wheeler had been parked under a covered area behind a golf cart, which would have to be moved for the four-wheeler to be taken.

Someone stole an air conditioner unit worth $3,000 from a vacant home on McRae Road. The victim said the home had been empty for about a year, but she knew the unit had been there Jan. 11.
