Pregnant woman allegedly stole cigarettes, pulled knife
Wednesday, March 28, 2012

ORANGEBURG, SC - A pregnant Orangeburg woman was charged with armed robbery Monday after police say she stole three packs of cigarettes at knife point.

Latricia Boneparte, 30, of 571 Salley St., was taken into custody late Monday after security personnel at the Riverside Drive Bi-Lo store reported a woman with a knife.

Bond on Boneparte was set Tuesday at $10,000 surety.

Police were notified around 9:20 p.m. Monday that a woman was fleeing from the Bi-Lo and headed toward John C. Calhoun Drive.

Officers searching for the woman found a man walking on the sidewalk who said she had come out of Bi-Lo a few minutes earlier telling a security guard who was chasing her that he was her father. The pedestrian said he was not her father but he was familiar with her, and he told police where she had been living.

Police found the woman lying on a bed inside a Enterprise Street residence. She said she was not the woman they were seeking. However, when police told a man inside the home the name of the woman they were looking for, he said it was the woman on the bed.

Security at the grocery store said she had picked up three packs of cigarettes and exited the store. As security followed her into the parking lot, she pulled out a knife and yelled, “Ya’ll better leave me alone,” the report said.

In other reports:

* A 16-year-old Orangeburg male was assaulted Friday by four or five males at Harmon Park.

The boy’s father said his son was walking across the park around 4:30 p.m. when he was assaulted by the males. The victim was struck multiple times before falling to the ground, and the assault continued, the report said.

The victim was taken to the hospital where it was determined he had suffered a broken nose. The victim’s parents believe a gang was involved in the attack.

* An Orangeburg man who had been arrested earlier by the Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office was further charged by city police with grand larceny.

Hinchie McGee IV, 31, of 332 Berry Street was charged Friday in connection with the theft of construction equipment.

Bond on McGee was set Saturday at $100,000.

A construction foreman told police that on March 6, a set of propane bottles and a cutting torch worth $2,000 were missing.

* A Winward Avenue man was arrested Monday for a second offense of having no S.C. driver’s license.

Police were patrolling John C. Calhoun Drive just before 11 p.m. when they spotted a truck with no tail lights. Police stopped the truck and ran the man’s information through the state DMV. He didn’t have a license and had been charged with the same offense previously. The 25-year-old was taken to jail.
