Someone stole a $1,300 saw from the trunk of a car during the 16 minutes that its rightful owner spent inside of a West Ashley hardware store.

A woman staying with her friend in West Ashley got sick and was taken to the hospital. Meanwhile, a different woman who was staying at the same house spent $92 at Marshall's and $225 at Kohl's on her credit card. Surveillance footage also showed her wearing the suspiciously sick woman's $800 Bulgari sunglasses.

After following a drunk man into an alley, an officer saw him "inexplicably" step into a decorative fountain on Market Street and begin wading through it.

A pizza joint owner in West Ashley has been emptying the cash registers every night after a string of recent thefts. As he was loading up his car, two men stole over $1,300 in cash while the owner was inside unloading a different cash register.

A man was paid $1,100 after claiming that a delivery worker must have replaced the $7,000 Rolex that he shipped out with an electric drill. Ballsy move in a city where the only TV show about the importance of postal inspectors is filmed.
