BERKLEY COUNTY, SC – An unmarked Berkeley County sheriff’s cruiser that was stolen this evening in Goose Creek has been located, a spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office said.

The deputy who was driving the vehicle, sheriff’s Capt. Cliff McElvogue, was visiting a residence in Goose Creek and had gone inside for a moment, Moon said. When the deputy came outside about 7:55 p.m., the vehicle was gone.

The cruiser had at least one handgun inside it, Moon said.

The vehicle was recovered about 11 p.m. not far from where it had been stolen, Moon said. It was abandoned on Springhall Road in the Crowfield subdivision.

Deputies were processing the vehicle, Moon said. He did not know if the handgun had been recovered.
