Two Camden men whose German Shepherds were seized by Kershaw County Animal Control (KCAC) and the Camden Police Department (CPD) recently filed a civil suit claiming their constitutional rights were violated. Richard Stoerkel and Clifton Anderson filed the suit against the city of Camden, CPD Lt. Mike Stone, Kershaw County, KCAC Director Peggy Spivey and KCAC officer Bobbie Bullington. Stoerkel and Anderson are accusing the defendants of unlawful search and seizure procedures; gross negligence and negligence per se; negligent supervision of employees, agents and contractors; trespassing; assault; battery; false imprisonment; and conversion -- all stemming from an April 22 incident during which Stone, Spivey and Bullington seized the two dogs from their Greene Street home.
