December 29, 2018

According to reports provided by the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office:

Deputies charged a 42-year-old Gloverville woman Friday morning with disorderly conduct after she was found on Augusta Road in Warrenville causing a disturbance in people’s yards.

A Warrenville man reported Thursday two unknown men walked into the backyard at his Pelzer Street residence and used a chainsaw to cut down a tree. He told deputies the tree fell and broke his television cable. The victim also had security footage showing two suspects walk in and out of his backyard, while a third suspect waited in a vehicle.

An Aiken man called police Thursday claiming his 21-year-old son had assaulted him outside his Ward Circle home. The victim said they got into an argument and his son walked over from his car and punched him in the face.

An employee of a store on Kerr Street in North Augusta called police Thursday claiming the store had been robbed by a man with a gun. The employee said she and another employee were stocking items in the store when she heard the suspect come inside and say, “Is anyone working, I need all the money.” The woman said she opened the register, giving the suspect and undisclosed amount of cash, while the other employee ran out of the store.

An Aiken woman reported Thursday a 40-year-old Graniteville woman stole a bag of prescription medications from her Abbeville Avenue residence.

A deputy initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle on Morgan Avenue in Aiken, when the driver and passengers fled on foot. The deputy searched vehicle and found two pistols and narcotics.

A Wagener man called police Thursday claiming a 58-year-old man had struck his young calf with his vehicle on the roadway off his property on Inca Road. The calf’s owner said the man told him of hitting the calf, but he reviewed security footage and believed the man hit the calf on purpose. Deputies then spoke with the driver who claimed the calf jumped in front of him and he stopped to inform the owner. When he returned to his truck, the calf was up and walked, but when he started to drive away he accidentally struck the calf a second time.

An Aiken man reported Thursday someone broke into his vehicle while it was parked outside his Brooks Avenue home.

A Graniteville woman called police Thursday claiming someone is harassing her and trying to keep track of her whereabouts. She told investigators she found a black box attached under the bumper of her vehicle and a consulate verified it was GPS tracking device. She said she thinks her child’s father had gotten the device placed there by a private detective, because she is going through a custody case.

Deputies charged a Warrenville man with receiving stolen goods, driving under suspension and failing to stop for police following a pursuit with the vehicle on S.C. 421. The tag on the vehicle came back as stolen.
