Crimes, joyrides, shoplifting, and a crash: A Beaufort news round-up

Today's reading brings an overflow of crime news — so rather than blot out your sunny but chilly day with crime news story after crime news story, here's the rundown and links all at once.

Friday: A man allegedly tried to walk out the door of Wal-Mart with a new pair of $20 shoes on, leaving his old kicks in the store.

Friday night: After a Jeep was dropped off for overnight repairs at Jiffy Lube, someone took it for a joyride and caused some $1,000 in damage

Saturday: Man stopped for traffic violation arrested after cocaine found in his sock.

Sunday early morning: A 21-year-old woman reported being kidnapped in a truck for a short time before escaping at a road near Shell Point.

Monday afternoon: Part of S.C. 170 was closed for a short time after a three car crash.

And two from last week we missed: Shots fired outside Magnolia Park Apartments (near the Food Lion on Laurel Bay Road) and an armed robbery and sexual assault of a man after he solicited tax help at his home.
