Threesome Arrested for Stealing Beer From Food Lion


Two Rock Hill, SC men, arriving in a Buick Regal, attempted to shoplift some cold alcoholic beverages from a local Food Lion when suddenly, they ran out of gas.  The shoplifters pilfered the beer from the Food Lion located on Heckle Boulevard.  The car was driven by a Rock Hillwoman who was identified by a Food Lion worker.  The employee was also able to provide the police with a license plate number.

Police found the unfortunate threesome stranded on the side of McConnells Highway just a little while later; their car having run out of gas.  They identified the license plate number and drove the couple to theYork County jail.  Here, the man allegedly attempted to spit in the face of the officer.  The woman stated that she did not know the beer was stolen, but mentioned, however, that it was weird that her friends had beer on Sunday.

Underage Drinkers Cited for Rock Hill Drinking Party

Six young people were arrested for a Rock Hill underage drinking party shortly after midnight last Saturday.  Deputies received a complaint about a suspicious vacant vehicle parked in front of a house; when they walked down the driveway they saw several people running away to the back of the house. 

When the police went to back of the house, they could see alcohol on the table through the glass doors, the report states.  The officers then went to the front of the house where they made contact with the residents.  Eventually arrests were made and as a result one of the people became belligerent.  The others were released with citations issued, and one man was brought into York County Detention Center. 

 A citation for underage drinking can carry a fine and license suspension.  If you or a loved one have been cited for underage drinking, or any charge associated with underage drinking such as public drunkenness or disorderly conduct, call the law offices of Reeves Aiken & Hightower.  We can assist in mitigating the charges as much as possible.  Call our Baxter Village Office in Fort Mill, SC at 803-548-4444 or toll free at 877-374-5999.
