COLUMBIA, SC - Columbia Police Chief Randy Scott announces the arrests of two teenagers charged in a home burglary and grand larceny investigation.

Lamonttae Tequan Hammond (DOB: 10/31/1994) is charged with Burglary Second Degree, Petit Larceny and Grand Larceny.

Christopher Outen (DOB: 3/14/1995) is charged with Burglary First Degree, Petit Larceny and Grand Larceny.

Hammond and Outen are accused of breaking into a home at the 900 block of West Confederate Avenue just after 7 o’clock in the morning on June 13, 2012.

The victim tells CPD Investigators that she came home and noticed that window locks had been broken. She then called police.

Once inside the residence, Hammond and Outen are accused of stealing the victim’s car keys and vehicle.

Hammond was arrested yesterday, by CPD’s Warrant Team and SLED while he was working at a Waffle House on Augusta Highway.

Outen was arrested on July 6, 2012 on 1107 West Main Street in the Town of Lexington after a Lexington Police Officer saw him driving the stolen vehicle.

Outen is housed at the Lexington County Detention Center on unrelated charges. He is expected to be transported to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center at a later date.
