A Laurens man was charged yesterday with Stealing Dogs on Monday of this week. 67-year-old Ronald Scott Schewsinger of 57 Hanson Circle was booked by the Sheriff’s Office Wednesday evening. Yesterday, he was served with warrants charging him with Two Counts of Stealing Dogs. They alleged in two incidents from Monday that he unhooked a pit bull-dog from its chain and walked the dog away from where it was being kept. These were Smythe Street in the Wattsville area and Beasley Street just outside the southeastern Laurens City limits. Another man was arrested earlier this week in an alleged attempt to take a pit bull from Beasley Street. Mr. Schewsinger was also served with a Fraudulent Check charge. He was released from the Johnson Detention Center yesterday on personal recognizance bonds totaling $2,470 on all three charges.
