Police have confirmed that Apple’s AirTags are being used by stalkers to track victims, as well as by thieves to steal cars. Veuer’s Maria Mercedes Galuppo has the story.

Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office

A man took $1,700 from a woman following a card game at a Dollar Tree store, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

The incident occurred at 2:30 p.m. Friday at the Dollar Tree at 2565 North Road in Orangeburg.

The woman said she was working at a checkout counter when a man approached and asked if she wanted to play a card game for money, according to the report.

She said she offered $20 to play the game, but she lost, so the man kept the money.

She then offered the man $1,700 to play the game, the report said.

She claims the man then took the cash and fled in a gray vehicle.

In an unrelated report, someone broke into a vehicle, garage and two sheds at a Freedom Road property in Branchville on Saturday and stole the following: a power saw, an electric bush trimmer, a leaf blower, an air compressor, a circular saw and a chainsaw.

The value of the stolen items is $1,590.

The value of the SUV is $5,000.
