The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office reported the following recent incidents:

A man living on St. Paul Lane outside Camden claimed his 22-year-old nephew threatened him with a gun during the second of two attempts to get him to leave the property on March 8. During the first incident, the man reported his nephew was cursing, yelling and attacking one of his friends, but was able to get him to leave. The second time, when his nephew returned to retrieve some property, he began yelling and cursing again and, this time, refused to leave. The man said he grabbed a hammer and they went outside, at which point, he said, his nephew allegedly grabbed a chrome- or nickel-plated gun from the passenger side of a car. He allegedly pointed it at his uncle and said, “What are you going to do with that hammer now?” The man said he went inside and called 911 while his nephew left in the car.

The KCSO is looking into whether or not the reported theft of a white Mitsubishi Eclipse from a Lugoff motel was actually stolen. A woman claimed the car disappeared from the parking lot sometime during the early morning hours on Tuesday. Deputies found the car on Boulware Road in Lugoff following a report of a hit and run. No one was around the car, which had sustained “significant” front edge damage and leaking power steering fluid. The tag on Mitsubishi came back to a 1998 Ford F-150 pickup truck. While talking with the woman who reported the alleged car theft, she allegedly lied about having a boyfriend or husband who may have taken the car. Deputies also found a mason jar near where the car came to rest that contained what appeared to be marijuana inside.

Someone broke into a Porter Road, Cassatt home sometime before 1:30 p.m. March 7. Responding deputies spoke with a woman who said her son came over to check on her animals and found the back door to the house open. He told her that when he went inside, he noticed television sets in the living room and bedroom missing, along with eight or nine video games. No one currently lives in the house and the electricity was turned off.

Deputies are looking into allegations that a female student in the Lugoff area threatened a school district network administrator on March 8 after he caught her on Facebook on her school-issued computer. She allegedly responded by stating she would kill the administrator and for him to leave her alone.

Someone entered a Kershaw area home on March 11 and stole a video game console and games, two safes, miscellaneous jewelry, a Taurus .380 caliber pistol, Savage Arms .25 caliber pistol and 10 Xanax pills. The thieves apparently made entry through an unlocked front bedroom window.

Deputies are looking into allegations that a 19-year-old county man has been calling, texting and sending Facebook messages to his ex-girlfriend threatening to shoot her and her family and threatening the life of the her sister’s unborn child.

Someone stole a HVAC unit from the rear of a house on Shepard Court in Cassatt sometime before Monday. A hot water heater inside the house was also stolen. In addition, whoever entered the home also moved a refrigerator and stove.

A man living on Brewer Springs Road near Camden reported finding two bullet holes in his house when he got home on the evening of March 8. The man told a responding deputy it was not uncommon to hear gunshots around his home.

Someone broke into a home on Brewer Springs Road near Camden on March 9 and stole about $80 to $90 in change from a jar in a bedroom. The unknown suspects apparently pried open the front door to gain entry.

A woman allegedly pointed a silver .45 caliber revolver at a neighbor in the Kershaw area on March 12 and threatened them. The woman admitted to having a revolver, but denied pulling it out.

On the morning of March 10, the KCSO responded to a report concerning someone threatening the life of a public employee. The KCSO provided no details.

A man living on Medfield Road in Lugoff reported his black 2012 GMC Yukon Denali was gone when he went to take his child to school in Monday morning.

Deputies are also investigating an allegation of third-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor reported around 6 p.m. March 8 in the Camden area. They are also looking into an allegation of assault with intent to commit third-degree criminal sexual conduct reported to deputies on Tuesday afternoon in the Cassatt area.

County deputies also dealt with seven cases of breaking and entering motor vehicles; six cases of larceny; five cases of simple possession of marijuana; four cases each of burglary and debit/credit card fraud; three cases each of breach of peace, public disorderly conduct and vandalism/malicious injury to property; two cases each of harassment, no driver’s license, third-degree domestic violence and trespassing; and one case each of assault and battery, DUI, pointing and presenting a firearm and unlawful use of telephone.




The Camden Police Department reported the following recent incidents:

Camden police officers curtailed what could have been a high speed chase on Sunday morning as the weather turned to snow and roads became slippery. Just before 11 a.m., an officer tried to pull over a maroon Nissan Altima that did not have its headlights on despite the weather at the DeKalb Street entrance to Springdale Plaza. The unidentified driver quickly accelerated through the shopping center’s parking lot in order to make a right turn at the Springdale Drive exit. The officer and another who joined him were able to keep in visual contact with the Altima as it sped up Springdale Drive. Due to the weather conditions, however, they cancelled the traffic stop as the vehicle continued to speed away.

A 33-year-old man living on Camden Avenue reported that the front windows to his home had been busted out on Sunday morning. He said he had been sleeping late and, when he realized what was happening, saw a woman throw a dog statue through the window of his front door. He looked outside and recognized a 22-year-old woman who had been over the night before. He told officers they had gotten into an argument and he had told her to leave. She had apparently used a wooden stake found on his front porch to bust out the other windows.

A man working at a Wall Street gas station said someone stole his white Crown Victoria while he was working. Surveillance footage showed him arriving around 10 a.m. and the car being driven away sometime later, but not showing who took it. The victim’s sister said someone stole another vehicle at a nearby restaurant and thought it might be related. The victim said he had a registered 9mm handgun in the car’s glove compartment when it was stolen.

Two 15-year-old male Continuous Learning Center students will face hearings at the district office for allegedly climbing Camden Middle School’s roof, moving a surveillance camera, throwing trash around on the ground and placing a full bag of trash inside of a food service van parked at the school. The two boys admitted to trying to get inside the school on Sunday afternoon by pulling on several doors.

A 60-year-old man sustained a bloody nose and ear after allegedly being assaulted on East DeKalb Street on March 10. He said he was attacked by two men, including one he recognized from work with whom he had an altercation earlier in the day. The victim refused medical attention.

Sometime during the last few months, someone stole a lawn mower, tiller and edger from a shed at a residence on the 3900 block of Broad Street.

Camden officers also dealt with four cases of shoplifting; three cases of debit/credit card fraud and larceny; two cases each of possession of drug paraphernalia and simple possession of marijuana; and one case each of burglary, driving under suspension, public disorderly conduct, trespassing and vandalism.
