Sheriff’s Office

A North man says he and an unknown woman went to the Budget Motel at 1333 Five Chop Road on Tuesday. When he woke up, his cellphone, clothes and vehicle were gone, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

He called deputies at 1:26 a.m. Wednesday, telling them how he picked up the female in North and agreed to take her home.

He said that once they reached Orangeburg, they went to the place where the female said she lived.

They waited on the female’s son to bring keys to the residence, but he didn’t show up.

The man rented a room at the motel at 7 p.m. for him and the unknown female.

He told deputies that the female used his cellphone all night, talking to someone he believed was her son.

Eventually, the man fell asleep with the unknown female still in the room with him.

When he woke up at 1:20 a.m., he discovered the unknown female was gone along with his phone, 1995 gray Ford Escort and blue pants.

The man told deputies that the vehicle belongs to his brother.

A deputy noted that the man wasn’t able to provide any information about the unknown female other than, “dark skin, stout, big breast and gold hair that looked like a wig.”

Deputies attempted to locate the female at the address where the man said she supposedly lived.

The value of the vehicle is $2,080.
