A Charlotte woman was charged with shoplifting after she allegedly stole 16 saw blades from the Lowe’s home improvement store in Fort Mill, according to a Fort Mill Police report.

The woman, identified as 36-year-old Shannon Marie Johnson of Charlotte, told police she needed money to pay her rent, according to the report. She was arrested and charged with shoplifting.

Men arrested following gunshot reports

Fort Mill Police arrested two men they said had a handgun and marijuana in their car after callers reported a someone in a vehicle firing a gun, according to a Fort Mill Police report.

The incident began at around 1 a.m. March 23 when 911 callers reported hearing gunshots coming from a car. Police stopped a white sedan on Williamson Street that matched callers’ description. Police allegedly found a handgun inside the car and a backpack inside which marijuana was stashed, according to the report.

They both were charged with possession of marijuana.

It’s unclear if they will also face charges related to the alleged gunshots.
