Authorities are asking residents of the Lake Wateree area to help them find the person or persons who broke into two vehicles Saturday, Aug. 24.

Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Brad Douglas said two vehicles were broken into at Taylor’s Creek Public Boat Landing about noon that day.

“Two fishermen were nearby when these crimes occurred and were able to provide a description of a vehicle that was possibly involved,” Douglas said.

The vehicle was described as a burgundy Dodge Ram pickup (late 1990s, early 2000s model) with gray trim on the bottom. The pickup also had about four to five small stickers (two to three inches in diameter) on the bottom of the rear window.

A description of the pickup occupants is unknown, Douglas said.

If you see a vehicle matching this description, police ask that you make notes (time, location, etc.) and a record of the tag number, if possible, and immediately call the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office at 803-635-4141.

“Please advise your friends, family and neighbors of this information and feel free to forward this information,” Douglas said.

Douglas can be reached at the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office, on his cell phone at (803) 718-4075 or by email at bdouglas@fairfieldsc.com.
