An alleged theft of a neighbor’s water led to an arrest overnight. Laurens County Deputy Michael Crocket was dispatched to Townsend Street in the Wattsville community at 11:13 last night on a report of a person hooking up to another person’s water supply without permission. A man reported that one of his neighbors approached him when he returned from work and said they had run someone off from drinking water from his garden hose outside his residence. The hose was found to be running from his outside spigot across his yard, under his neighbor’s fence and could be seen all the way over in the neighbor’s yard. An investigation resulted in the arrest of 40-year-old Tammy Marie Piche of 17 Townsend Street. She was arrested on a Larceny charge and placed in the Johnson Detention Center overnight.
