Charleston Police Department Updates

LATEST SCAM

In recent weeks there have been reported some thefts from homes believed to be committed by the “Travelers.”  These suspects are using trickery to enter the homes while residents are there.

 

Beware of anyone knocking on your door offering a service you did not request. There are any number of possible scenarios, but in these cases the subjects pretended to represent a tree service and directed the residents into the back yard to discuss branch or tree removal. After a few minutes they received radio or phone communications and left. Residents later discovered that while they were distracted by the person in the back yard, accomplices had entered the unsecure residence through the front door and stolen money and items.

 

If you have senior relatives, advise them not to open their door to strangers.  Instead, speak to solicitors only through the door and tell them you are not interested, then call police.  Only deal with repairmen that you have personally requested.

Lowcountry Street Grocery – a mobile farmers market – will be changing the day they serve Daniel Island from Tuesday to Monday starting June 19.

Lowcountry Street Grocery features LOCAL ITEMS that are hard to source including fruits, vegetables, spices, egg, dairy, meats, cheese, breads, etc. all from small local producers.

 

Lowcountry Street Grocery setups shop in the The Church of the Holy Cross parking lot from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.  

 

Lowcountry Street Grocery ( http://www.lowcountrystreetgrocery.com/ ) gives back to our Charleston community by providing fresh food in some of the “food deserts” in the inner city that have no groceries in walking distance. They also provide nutrition education and accept Snap and food stamps debit cards in the lower income areas of Charleston (which not many farmers accept). They are a mission-driven, mobile farmers’ market, designed to make healthy, local food accessible for Charleston residents.

 

When you shop at Lowcountry Street Grocery a portion of your sale is reinvested to sustain this mission. That means every time you shop for healthy, local food aboard the bus, you’re helping to empower a neighbor in need to do the same. 

 

Lowcountry Street Grocery is a win for the buyers, a win for the mission, and a win for the small local producers.
