The Camden Police Department (CPD) is investigating the reported theft of a medical machine from KershawHealth.

In the CPD police report, dated Feb. 20, a hospital employee said they noticed the $2,700 machine was missing the day before, but didn’t report it until they verified it had not simply been moved inside the hospital. A search of the building failed to locate the machine, according to the report.

The CPD also reported that a man called Sunday to report that someone stole $15,000 from his Mill Lane home. The police report said the victim told an officer he had been saving the money to buy a truck and had it hidden inside the home. The last time he saw it was around 2:30 p.m. the day before. He said he left for work at 5:20 p.m. and when he got home later, saw several items had been knocked off a window sill. The report said the window lock appeared to have been forced open and the deadbolt lock on the back door was unlocked. The victim said he was sure the door was locked when he went to work.

The CPD also made seven arrests for driving under suspension; three for assault and drunkenness; had two cases each of possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and theft; and one case each of criminal domestic violence, vandalism, credit card fraud, burglary driving under the influence and a minor in possession of tobacco.
