A walker was treated after being shot with what looked like a BB, according to a Sheriff’s Office incident report.

Deputies were sent to the hospital Saturday, where a woman said she was struck by a projectile during her daily walking routine.

She said she was on Second Avenue around 6 p.m. when she felt a sharp pain in her leg. When she returned home, she discovered she was bleeding from her right leg.

An X-ray of the wound revealed the woman had been shot by a BB that pierced the skin and lodged in her leg.

In other reports:

* Two more tractors have been stolen from Pioneer Farm Equipment.

Workers told deputies that two Kubota tractors with front-end loaders were taken from the Big Buck Boulevard business around midnight Thursday. A goose-neck trailer was also stolen.

Security video shows subjects entering the property and taking the tractors. They have a combined value with the trailer of $71,000.

An $18,000 tractor was taken two weeks ago. Another tractor stolen in August was recovered.

* A Eutawville man’s $31,000 fishing rig is gone.

The man said that around 3 a.m. Sunday he heard his neighbor’s dogs barking. He then heard his own green, 2005 Ford F-150 truck crank up and drive off.

He said the truck was towing his silver and white 24-foot Tritoon pontoon boat. In turn, the boat held four depth finders, 30 rods and reels, and a marine radio.

The man said he left the key in the ignition because he was tired and simply wanted to go to bed.

Deputies are checking several video surveillance systems in the area to see if the boat went past.

* A woman tried to return a pair of printers to Walmart that belonged to the store.

Loss and Prevention staff of the North Road store said that on Thursday a 19-year-old Orangeburg woman took two printers to the service desk asking for a refund. They said the printers weren’t hers to begin with.

The woman was placed on notice not to trespass at the store.

Police are looking for a “dirty man” with yellow eyes after a subject snatched some money from a register at the Hot Spot early Sunday, according to an ODPS incident report.

Employees called police around 1:45 a.m. saying a man came into the store and asked for a pack of matches. When the clerk opened the register, the man reached over and grabbed what is believed to be a small amount of cash from the till and ran out.

The employees described the man as a black male wearing a multi-color sweater, tan pants, brown shoes and a baseball cap. They said he had a goatee, “yellow looking eyes,” and looked “real dirty,” according to the report.

Officers are reviewing the security video to identify the subject.
