MYRTLE BEACH — A woman is facing destruction of property charges after a July incident involving her son’s car, police said.
Faith Alston Rogers, 46, of Georgetown was charged with malicious injury of property worth more than $2,000 but less than $10,000.
According to a Myrtle Beach police report, officers responded to the Sea Banks Motor Inn, located at 2200 S. Ocean Blvd., at about 8 a.m. July 12 for a reported vandalism.
Officers spoke with a 19-year-old man who said Rogers, who is his mother, was waiting on him in the parking lot when he left his apartment to go to work. He said Rogers asked to borrow his car, a Dodge Neon, but the he told her she couldn’t, according to police.
At that point, the man said Rogers walked to his car, slashed both passenger side tires on the car and said, “Now try and drive it somewhere.” The man told police Rogers then got into a vehicle with another person and left.
Rogers was arrested and charged in connection with the incident early Sunday morning.
