Gary B.: Student on way to school comes upon vehicle with four individuals in ski-masks


Monday morning, April 9, a high school student was on her way to school in Independence County when she came up behind a white colored vehicle with no tags turning onto Brewer Hill Road.  

The student later told Sgt. Chris Toland of the Independence County Sheriff’s Department when they got to the top of the hill, the car’s four occupants, which were wearing ski masks, turned around and looked at her, according to the police report. Then the white car sped up and continued on Brewer Hill Road toward Hwy. 167.

The police report said a few minutes later, she came up behind the white car again. This time, the vehicle stopped in the middle of the road and the driver, a tall white male wearing a red shirt and blue jeans, jumped out of the vehicle and ran toward her car.  She said she quickly turned around in the roadway and fled back to her residence, and told her mother what happened. Her mother then brought her to the sheriff’s office to make a report.

The report went on to say that her dad got into her vehicle and began to drive around the area. He found the same vehicle stopped in the roadway at the intersection of Cameo lane and Cave Creek Road.  The vehicle’s driver was a female and an older white male, approximately 60 years old and wearing a red shirt and blue jeans, got out of the car and approached him waving his arms.  The father informed the subject to leave his vehicle alone and to not be bothering it anymore.

Deputies responded to the area, and searched for the vehicle, but were unable to locate it.
