MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A 62-year-old man who was taking photos of what he alleged to be drug activity at the building across the street from him on Yaupon Drive told police his camera was stolen, but was “un-cooperative” with police and apparently intoxicated during the investigation, according to the police report.

The victim told police there had been a lot of foot and vehicle traffic the last few days at a building in the 400 block of Yaupon Drive, and while he had not seen any drugs, he decided he was going to take pictures of the people and vehicles at the property.

On Thursday, a man approached the victim and asked what he was doing. The victim said he was taking pictures, and after he took a picture of the man, the man grabbed the camera and ran off towards Kings Highway.

Officers went to the room that the man reportedly came out of, but could not find the suspect or the camera.

The victim was “highly un-cooperative” and intoxicated during the investigation, according to the Myrtle Beach Police report. When filling out a statement form, the victim listed his height as “high,” his weight as “fat,” his hair as “some,” and his eyes as, “yes.”

While officers were speaking with security in the area, the victim called 911, wanting to speak to a supervisor, the report states. He said he was not happy that officers had not “went in there and got his camera.”

Officers advised the victim to call them if he saw the suspect return or if he was able to locate the serial number on his camera.
