The 3rd Circuit Court Solicitor’s Office has dismissed charges against a Kershaw County councilman Tuesday after investigators could find no criminal charges to file against him.
Sammie Tucker Jr., 48, turned himself into law enforcement on Oct. 31 after he was charged with unlawful sale of personal property for allegedly stealing a truck and a trailer, and their titles, from a business in Kershaw County and selling them to another business in Camden Clarendon County.
Reggie Lloyd, Tucker’s attorney, said investigators from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, Clarendon County Sheriff’s Office, Kershaw County Sheriff’s Department and the solicitor’s office could not find any criminal charges to pursue against Tucker.
An incident report filed with the Clarendon County Sheriff’s Office in connection with the incident said Tucker borrowed $20,000 from the owner of Car City. In exchange for the money, he turned a truck and trailer’s title over to the business.
The report said the owner of the business reported that on Oct. 15, Tucker was at the business while organizing a safe driving academy event and stole the truck and trailer, along with their titles, and sold it to a business in Clarendon County.
Butm, Lloyd said SLED officials investigated the complaint, along with the solicitor’s office, and found no criminal case to be presented.
