Sheriff: Teens caught breaking into home
Wednesday, October 12, 2011

CHAPIN, SC (WIS) - Lexington County deputies have charged two Chapin teenagers with breaking into a home on Crystal Creek Circle near Chapin.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said the 14-year-old boy and 15-year-old boy were released to their parents' custody before they appear in family court on a charge of second-degree burglary. Under South Carolina law, the sheriff cannot identify the two boys because of their age.

Deputies responded to a call around 3:30pm Monday concerning a burglary in progress at the home on Crystal Creek Circle. Metts said the teens were seen leaving the home after the burglary occurred.

Deputies saw the teens walking along Dreher Island Road about a half-mile from the home and detained the teens, Metts said. The 14-year-old boy was found to possess an Olympus OM-1 35-mm camera that had been reported stolen from the Crystal Creek Circle home, and the 15-year-old boy was found to possess a Virgin Mobile air card that had been reported stolen.
