Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office

A Kings Road man reported Thursday that someone broke into his Toyota Sequoia and stole his gold chain necklace and .45-caliber handgun, but left a woman’s purse behind.

He told deputies that he locked his vehicle around 7 p.m. the night before. When he went to load his vehicle for work at 5:15 a.m., he noticed a front door open and items from the glove compartment scattered about.

There were two items in the backseat that did not belong to him: a paper tag from T&T Auto Sales and a small purse.

Deputies confiscated the two items and entered them as evidence.

The two stolen items are described as a gold Cuban link chain necklace and a black Glock 21 .45-caliber handgun. They are valued at $1,360.

In a separate incident, an Orangeburg woman reported Thursday that someone stole her 2004 lime-green Suzuki motorcycle after she was in a minor accident.

After she fell off her motorcycle, EMS transported the woman to the Regional Medical Center for treatment. She called a friend to retrieve her motorcycle for safekeeping until she left the hospital.

Her friend parked the motorcycle at the side of his house. It’s now missing.

The motorcycle is valued at $6,000.
