Allegedly Left with Cash & Credit Card

  The Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a domestic incident on Highway 221 South of Laurens at 12:06 yesterday afternoon. A woman had returned to a residence where she had been living with a man to pick up some of her belongings and a verbal confrontation began between the two. She said there was no physical altercation during the argument, she had no visible signs of injury and she did not want to press charges. From questioning of the woman and later of the man, a story was revealed of the woman allegedly putting valium in the man’s food Wednesday night so he would sleep well as she was leaving with the children they share. She also allegedly took his company credit card and $1,000 to $1,100 cash from his pocket before leaving him. Yesterday, she gave him back the majority of the money. He also declined to prosecute the woman.
