Report: Son steals mother’s meds, threatens to kill family members | Crime
A Chapin man was arrested after stealing his mother’s medication and threatening to kill his family, according to sheriff’s deputies.
According to a Lexington County Sheriff’s Department incident report, officers arrested 17-year-old Jessie Miller on a charge of third-degree assault and battery.
Deputies say on July 7, officers responded to an assault call between a father and son at a home located on Wessinger Road.
According to the report, Miller destroyed the residence and chased his mother, father and brother out of the house and down the street while threatening to kill them.
Upon arrival, officers located Miller outside the residence yelling at his family members who fled to a neighbor’s house located across the street, the report stated.
Deputies say they questioned Miller on what made him so upset, and he advised officers that his dad accused him of taking his mother’s medication.
According to the report, Miller admitted to officers that he did steal the drugs and stated “Because I am a drug addict and I’ll take anything I can get my hands on.”
Deputies then spoke with the father who stated his son is an addict and stole his mother’s medication.
The father explained to officers that Miller stole 40 pills of Xanax and Vicodin, and when he confronted Miller about it he became enraged and started threatening family members, the report stated.
Deputies say Miller pushed his father into the kitchen table and chased his brother out of the house and down the street yelling at him that he would kill him. Miller then threw two rocks at the home shattering two front windows.
Miller was arrested and transported to Lexington County Detention Center.
