Unwelcome at Moe’s
Two men who definitely were not welcome at a local business are being sought by the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office.
The robbery at Moe’s Original Bar B Que on U.S. 17 in Litchfield happened around 9:15 p.m. May 20.
Two armed men, both wearing black, entered the business and demanded money from the employees, according to Carrie Cuthbertson, spokeswoman for the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office.
Never miss a local story.
The surveillance photos really don’t show a lot about their identities.
The first man was about six feet tall, wearing black shorts, a black shirt, a black baseball cap and a black mask, Cuthbertson said.
The second suspect is slightly shorter, about five feet, six inches tall. He was also wearing dark clothing and a mask.
No one was hurt during the robbery.
The men left without taking any of that really good barbecue or fabulous side dishes from Moe’s.
Anybody who has any information about the barbecue bandits should call the Sheriff’s Office at 546-5102.
Gambling and smoking
A 20-year-old woman who was really having a bad day was arrested after she told Myrtle Beach Police she was robbed.
That was her first mistake.
The woman had actually lost money while gambling, according to recent reports.
Gabriella Alexis McKenzie probably wished she had never told that original falsehood.
While talking to her, police said they smelled something a little funny.
McKenzie was then charged with simple possession of marijuana, after police found she was hiding a small baggie of green stuff.
Too bad the green stuff wasn’t her original missing money.
This must be a week for criminals to commit multiple crimes, all at the same time.
A man was arrested May 17 after he tried to burn down a house with five people inside.
All this after the arson victims said he first appeared at their house looking for illegal pills.
Daniel Allen Everhart, 20, is now charged with five counts of attempted muder and third-degree arson.
The fire, police chase and reported drug seeking happened at an apartment on Chester Street.
Police said Everhart try to start a fire, then run away when spotted by an undercover officer on patrol.
While other officers fought the fire, Everhart was caught in the area of Kings Highway.
The people inside the house said Everhart had stopped at the house and asked to buy Xanex.
When they told him they didn’t sell drugs, Everhart reportedly set their house on fire.
This is not someone you want stopping by in the middle of the night.
A star of a program that was once the favorite of teens everywhere found himself in hot water in Myrtle Beach.
Nicholas Brendon, who was in town for the recent X-Con World convention, ran into a situation even Buffy the Vampire Slayer couldn’t handle.
Brendon, 44, was arrested for public intoxication around midnight May 17.
It wasn’t the first time Brendon has been in trouble while celebrating comic books.
The public intoxication charge was actually his third arrest this year, according to recent reports.
Brendon reportedly trashed a hotel room in Florida, after he said he “stopped taking his medication.”
To his credit, Brendon told police in Florida he was dealing with some heavy issues from his childhood.
These issues apparently caused him to stop up the toilet in his room, hurt himself and take sleeping pills until he blacked out, according to an article on People.com.
He also trashed another hotel room in Florida after saying he was a star who “deserved a better room.”
Brendon, according to his acting history, played Xander Harris on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” and has been writing a comic book about season 10 of the series.
Police are searching for a suspect after a woman told authorities that a man came up behind her and snatched her bank envelope, containing $800, out of her hand while she was counting it.
The victim said the suspect was on a moped, and she tried to catch up to him, but he got away, thus resulting in the worst heist/car chase movie EVER.
