LONGS, SC (WMBF) – A Myrtle Beach man was arrested near Longs Sunday morning when police found stolen property, including wrapped Christmas presents, a firearm, and a bicycle, in the back of a pick-up truck after a short chase.

At about 4:30 a.m., Horry County Police were dispatched to the area of Checkerberry lane in Longs to check out a suspicious vehicle, according to a news release from the department. Officers found the vehicle and attempted to stop it, but the driver refused to stop.

After a short chase, the driver abandoned the vehicle, which was later found to be stolen, and tried to run, but was apprehended, the release states. At one point during the chase, a bicycle flew out of the bed of the truck, but was later recovered, according to the police report.

The driver of the truck, 19-year-old Brian Christopher Dix, was found in possession of stolen property, including electronics, clothes, and a firearm. Some of the items appeared to presents wrapped in Christmas paper, the report states.

Dix was charged with driving under suspension, failure to stop for blue light and siren, possession of a stolen vehicle, and unlawful carry of a pistol.

According to jail records, Dix was booked into the J. Reuben Long Detention Center Monday morning and remains incarcerated as of Monday evening.

    Several people who live on the side streets of Ocean Blvd. in North Myrtle Beach recently received a letter saying they need to get rid of obstructions in front of their homes. The city says that’s because the space could be used for public parking. Around 30 people came out to the city council meeting on Monday to speak out about the issue.
