NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Guests at an Airbnb called 911 after witnessing suspicious activity outside the home on Flynn Drive in North Charleston Friday morning.
The guests tell police dispatch they noticed a vehicle outside the home.
The callers describe the vehicle as a gray sedan. Soon after their call, police arrive.
Callers say the officers approach the man sitting in the vehicle when suddenly, he speeds off.
