Police arrested a man and charged him with property damage after authorities said he broke a glass door at a Myrtle Beach liquor store early Saturday morning.
Officers were called in reference to vandalism when a security alarm went off about 3 a.m. at a liquor store at 2850 North Kings Highway. They arrested Gregory Lewis Bass, 45, who was on the scene when they arrived, in connection with the incident, according to a police report.
Police said they saw Bass standing outside the store next to a red truck and requested he put his hands up. Bass complied with their commands and was taken into custody without incident.
Authorities said they saw a piece of cider block near the broken glass door. Police watched security footage of the incident with a 49-year-old store manger and saw a man matching Bass’ description outside the store with the piece of cider block in hand.
