Police Blotter - May 12, 2022

The following incidents were taken from the City of Charleston Police Department reports within Team 5, which serves Daniel Island and parts of the Cainhoy peninsula, between April 16-30. 
Theft from a Building
On April 21, police responded to a complaint of a stolen bank card. The victim invited two men to his apartment located on Seven Farms Drive and purchased methamphetamine from them. An argument took place about the price of the narcotic and there was a physical altercation. The complainant later noticed his wallet had been misplaced. When it was found, his South Carolina ID, social security card, and debit card had been removed. A withdrawal in the amount of $460 was made from an ATM, then $300 was taken from the account through Jiggsaw, a cash app. Another $500 withdrawal attempt was made but was declined. The investigation is pending. 
Team 5 responded to a residence on Robert Daniel Drive on April 26 in reference to a theft. The complainant left a compactable, heavy-duty utility cart in the parking garage of his apartment complex. When he went back to retrieve it, the cart was missing; he then conducted a search on all floors of the garage. No surveillance video was available. The item was valued at $170.
Credit Card / ATM Fraud
On April 28, a resident came into the Team 5 station to report a fraud incident. An unknown individual used her Amazon bank card to purchase a set of AirPods and have them shipped to an address on Fairchild Street. She did not authorize the transaction and received an email from her bank alerting her of a potential fraudulent transaction. The purchase amount was $271.
