GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Officials with the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office say a reported package theft from the front porch of a house at the Litchfield Country Club was a misunderstanding.

Sheriff Carter Weaver said that no crime was involved in the Dec. 23 incident.

Initially, the sheriff’s office released a picture of a man who they sought to identify in what they described at the time as a package theft.

“A photo from a Ring Doorbell camera was posted on the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page, asking if anyone knew the man on the porch,” the sheriff’s office said.

A newly released report states that when deputies contacted the man, he explained that he had ordered a gift for his parents but put the wrong address on the delivery slip.

“When he was notified the package had been delivered to the address he requested, he went there and picked it up,” GCSO officials said. “He had documentation that he had ordered the package. Deputies determined, the incident was a misunderstanding.”
