Four nabbed for break-ins

WINNSBORO- Four juveniles were arrested on Saturday in connection with a string of 20 vehicle break-ins in the county spanning over the last few months . A Sheriff’s spokesperson said it is believed that the suspects are also responsible for stolen food items from various freezers and an attempted auto-mobile theft.
Two of the juveniles were nabbed after homeowners in the area reported individuals going through several vehicles on Highway 200 near the intersection of Peay’s Ferry Road. Officers discovered the pair in a 2006 Toyota Camry that had previously been reported stolen. The blood hound tracking team were at the scene, but the search turned up nothing.
The two other suspects fled the immediate scene of the crime, but a continued investigation led to their arrests. All four are currently housed at the S.C. Department of Juvenile Justice awaiting trial on charges of theft from a motor vehicle, tampering with a motor vehicle, grand larceny and petit larceny.
