Man Arrested in North Augusta Burglary
AIKEN COUNTY, SC - On Wednesday morning, July 31st, Public Safety assisted the Aiken County Sheriff’s Department this morning with the apprehension of a tall white male identified as Brian Lowry. He is suspected in a string of vehicle break-ins in the CSRA. At this point, he was a person of interest in many unsolved vehicle break-ins and burglaries in the city limits of North Augusta. Our Detectives worked closely with the Sheriff’s Department throughout the day collecting evidence and learning more about his potential involvement.
As the investigation continued, Public Safety has successfully connected Lowry to the McGee Burglary and Larceny of the Volkswagon. Warrants for 1st Degree Burglary and Larceny of Motor Vehicle were obtained and served to Lowry while incarcerated in the Aiken County Detention Center. We are still in the investigative process of hopefully tying Lowry to the vehicle break-ins and the Ward burglary. Lowry is in jail and is expected to be there for a while pending the independent investigations of several local law enforcement agencies. North Augusta strongly believes and is actively working to establish sufficient evidence to successfully prosecute him for all the crimes he has committed in the North Augusta area.
We continue to urge all citizens to help make themselves be a hard target of crime by doing a few simple things: 1) lock your doors; both at home and vehicle, 2) close all garage doors and other exterior accesses to your home securely at night, and 3) do not leave anything of value in your vehicles in plain view.
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.
