Sheriff’s Office Arrests Burglary Suspect Again
Wednesday, October 3, 2012

Lancaster, SC – On Monday 10/01/2012 Sheriff’s Office investigators arrested Joseph J. Hinson (B/M DOB: 05/29/1986 Address: 1134 Laurel Ave. Lancaster, SC) following a burglary investigation.

An investigation of a residential home burglary showed that on 09/26/2012 Hinson did break and enter into a home on Hoke Rd. in Lancaster County. Once inside, Hinson did steal jewelry and firearms from the residence. Hinson then sold jewelry from the burglary at the “We Buy Gold Store” on Memorial Park Rd. in Lancaster.

Hinson is currently incarcerated at the Lancaster County Detention Center where his bond has been denied.

Hinson was recently released from the Detention Center on a $55,000 bond on 09/22/2012 after he was arrested for burglary and drug possession charges.

Sheriff Faile said, “Repeat offenders like Hinson are one of our biggest problems and I am pleased we were able to make this arrest.”

If you, or someone you know, have any information regarding any crime, you are encouraged to contact Crimestoppers. You could earn a reward up to $1,000.
