Deputies arrest break-in suspects after short chase
Wednesday, August 24, 2011

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Richland County deputies caught three suspected burglars who led them on a short chase Monday afternoon, according to the sheriff.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said Desmond James Mitchell, 20, Ronald D. Mitchell, 20, and Louis Lamont McCreary-Hall, 33, are charged with burglary/breaking and entering.

Lott said deputies responded to a burglary call around 1:10 p.m. Monday on Hidden Pines Road in Columbia. When deputies arrived, Lott said they saw the suspects running from the scene and caught the men after a short chase.

The victim told deputies she was in her home when she saw the Mitchells and McCreary-Hall ringing her bell. When she didn't answer, Lott said the suspects forced entry into the home.

Sheriff Leon Lott stated that Mitchell, Mitchell, and McCreary-Hall were taken to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.

Lott said it's good practice to secure your home with a quality security system, strong deadbolt locks, window security and door guards for doors that open inward. Lott advised to have a safety plan of action and start a neighborhood crime watch.
