Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputies responded to a Ridgeway home for a report of a burglary and theft Saturday.

According to a KCSO report, the victim said he and a cousin had been out in Columbia and didn’t get home until 5 to 6 a.m. Saturday. When they awoke at 10 a.m. they found someone had broken in the front door of the home, took an $800 gold chain from the neck of the victim while he slept and took $80 from his pants pocket. The victim told a deputy about two visitors to the home several days earlier, including one he claimed had admired the chain.

The KCSO reported the following other incidents during the period of Feb. 16-22:

A woman reported a boat stolen from a Lakeshore Drive, Camden residence Friday. According to the KCSO report, the woman said her husband had been hospitalized all through January and no one had been to check on their lake home. She went there Feb. 6 and noticed their $5,000 pontoon boat missing from the dock where it was kept. She asked neighbors to take their boat and look around the lake for the missing boat, but it was not found, according to the report. The boat is described as a 24-foot white Aloha pontoon with a black stripe, powered by a 45-hp Mariner outboard motor. The KCSO entered the boat into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database so other law enforcement agencies would be aware of the reported theft.

A Camden resident reported a utility trailer stolen Saturday. According to the KCSO report, the victim reported the 6-foot by 10-foot trailer was worth $900 and someone took it from the backyard during the night.

The KCSO also reported five cases of public disorderly conduct, two arrests for driving under the influence, two for driving under suspension and one report each for communicating threats, breach of beach, stalking, stalking, criminal domestic violence, vandalism, burglary, debit card credit, possession of drug paraphernalia, theft, open container, failure to stop for blue lights, resisting arrests and malicious injury to property.


Camden Police Department (CPD) officers answered a call of a stolen car Saturday.

According to a CPD report, a Carlos Street resident reported his 2006 Honda Accord missing, even though it was locked and he had the keys. The CPD entered the incident into the NCIC database so other law enforcement agencies would be aware of the theft.

The CPD also reported three arrests for driving under the influence, two thefts and one case each of credit card fraud, driving under suspension, drunkenness, shoplifting, trespassing and disorderly conduct.
