Beaufort is generally pretty quiet with no more than one or so notable story of physical assault, robbery, or — in the very rare occasions — a homicide per week.
Things have been a good bit more active as of late.
Let's do the rundown:
- On Wednesday Jerrod Nathan Taylor of Beaufort was arrested after a July 25 shooting at Spanish Trace Apartments near Port Royal. He is accused of shooting two men and charged with attempted murder.
- On Wednesday four were arrested following an armed robbery of a man in the parking lot of 11th Street Dockside Restaurant in Port Royal.
In related news, a Bluffton man, Arthur Smith, was sentenced to 30 years after he was convicted on charges of criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
