Traffic stop
yields arrest
A county deputy performed a traffic stop shortly after 11 a.m. on Sept 3 for an improper dealer tag.
The driver identified himself and a female passenger in the front seat.
The male driver told the officer he did not have his license on him, but that he did have one.
The deputy asked to search the vehicle, and the driver consented.
The deputy found an SC ID card that had someone else’s name, but a picture that matched the driver.
As the search continued, the deputy found another SC ID and an inmate card with a different name, but again, a picture matching the female passenger.
The passenger said she had a twin sister by the other name.
The deputy found a black bag containing a scale, small plastic bags and two containers of white pills with a mark of 54 411 written on them.
Both were placed under arrest – the male for possession of a controlled substance, and the female was issued a citation.
Financial forgery
Someone contacted the Colleton County Sheriff’s Department on Sept. 3 requesting a report be filed about a cash app information being stolen and used to duplicate a cash card and make unauthorized purchases.
The victim said he did not give out the information or permission to make purchases that amount to fraud.
The victim was advised that CCSO would not be investigating this incident because it happened outside the county. But that he could contact the authorities of the county of location and file the report there.

Grand larceny

The lifts were valued at approximately $1,500 and $100 for the battery.

A CCSO deputy was dispatched to the 16,500 block of Ace Basin Parkway in reference to a shoplifting incident at the Circle C Express business.
