MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A Myrtle Beach woman was charged with arson Wednesday evening after she was seen setting a moped on fire, according to a Myrtle Beach Police report.
At about 7:46 p.m. Wednesday, an MBPD officer met several witnesses in the rear parking lot of a bar in the 800 block of Kings Highway, the report states. The officer detained 45-year-old Kimberly Rena Garrett who then admitted that she had set a moped on fire because someone had set hers on fire recently.
The witnesses told the officer that Garrett had walked out on a bar tab a few days earlier, and they were watching her to make sure she did not do it again tonight.
The Myrtle Beach Fire Department arrived on the scene, checked the moped, and determined the fire was out. The moped was next to the gas line, but there appeared to be no damage to it, the report states.
Once Garrett was booked into jail, an officer found three tablets in her pocket, which were identified by a pharmacist as clonazepam, a schedule four narcotic.
Garrett was charged with public intoxication, third-degree arson, and possession of a schedule four narcotic.
