Deputies believe juveniles are to blame for two break-ins on Catalina Boulevard in North on Friday night, according to incident reports. The incidents were reported to law enforcement on Tuesday.

In one incident, someone removed items from an 18-foot enclosed trailer belonging to the S.C. United Methodist Conference, including an LED Wagan beacon light, two Craftsman flashlights and a Dewalt drill driver.

Deputies believe juveniles were behind the theft because no major items were disturbed, the report said.

The value of the stolen items is $315.

Someone also broke into the North Fire Department and disturbed the storage compartments of the fire engines.

A fire extinguisher was removed from one of the compartments and discharged in the building.

Someone also poured washing powder on a table and wrote, “Fat a - -, smoke grass, fast,” the incident report states.

“The subjects appeared to be juveniles involved in this incident, from the damage that was caused. None of the expensive items in the building were stolen or tampered with,” the incident report states.

In other reports:

  • At 7 a.m. Tuesday, the owner of Carolina Agri-Power on Five Chop Road discovered that a black DTE open trailer and a Scout XL four-seat UTV were missing from the property.

It appeared someone cut the lock on the gate and removed the items.

The items are valued at $17,200.

  • A Crossover Road woman reported Tuesday afternoon that someone burglarized her unsecured home and stole the following items: a 32-inch RCA television, a 32-inch Vizio television, a 42-inch Vizio television and a pair of size 10 Nike Jordan sneakers.

The value of the stolen items is $1,150.
