A Belleville Road woman alleges that her neighbors attempted to steal electricity from her.

She told deputies that this was the second time that some Jamison Avenue residents attempted to run an electrical cord from their residence to hers in an attempt to power their residence, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

She noticed a long cord plugged into the outlet near the rear of her residence.

She attempted to confront her neighbors and saw a female pulling the cord back to a Jamison Avenue residence, the report said.

She said the neighbors initiated a verbal dispute with her.

In an unrelated incident, a 25-year-old Orangeburg man is facing a weapons charge after he allegedly got into a fight at the S.C. Department of Motor Vehicles office at 1724 Charleston Highway.

Officers responded to the DMV office at 1 pm. Tuesday in reference to a fight.

The suspect left the office as a passenger in a vehicle, but the Orangeburg Department of Public Safety stopped the vehicle on Charleston Highway.

A deputy asked him if he had anything that could harm the deputy or others on the scene.

The 25-year-old stated he didn’t have anything that would pose any harm, the incident report states.

However, when the deputy frisked him, he discovered “what appeared to be electrical tape wrapped around the handle of what was believed to be a weapon,” the incident report states.

A deputy allegedly removed a loaded silver firearm from the man’s pocket.

The firearm had several bullets in the chamber, the incident report states.

Deputies transported the man to the Orangeburg County Detention Center on the charge of unlawful possession of a firearm. He posted a bond of $1,000 on Wednesday.
