Allen Street Resident Encounters Prowler

A Summerville man believes that someone is prowling around his property at night, according to police reports.

An Allen Street resident said his dogs started barking and an outdoor security light came on around 9:18 p.m. Tuesday, according to a Summerville Police report.

“[The resident] informed me that he was laying in bed when he heard his backdoor gate being pulled. [The resident] stated that he then got out of bed and heard the sliding glass door open. Upon approaching the back door, [The resident] stated that he then heard the back door gate slam extremely loud,” Summerville Policeman Gary Pruitt reported.

The prowler did not make entry into the house and now cops are watching the area.
