Deputies Arrest Teen-Ager for Breaking Into Home


Lexington County Sheriff’s Department deputies arrested a 16-year-old boy on Thursday, July 10 on charges that the boy broke into a home on Vonda Drive near Lexington.

Lexington County Sheriff A. Lewis McCarty said deputies arrested the 16-year-old boy after the deputies responded to a call at about 8:35 a.m. on Thursday concerning a burglary that was in the process of being committed at the Vonda Drive home.

Detectives will recommend that the 11th Judicial Circuit Solicitor’s Office prosecute the 16-year-old boy in family court in Lexington County on a charge of second-degree burglary, McCarty said. The 16-year-old boy is being held at a pre-trial detention facility that the South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice operates on Broad River Road in Columbia. Under South Carolina law, McCarty cannot release any information that could identify the 16-year-old boy because the boy is a child.

Deputies found the 16-year-old boy walking on Vonda Drive towards Old Orangeburg Road and placed the 16-year-old boy in investigative detention, McCarty said. A Sony computer worth $1,000 was reported stolen from the Vonda Drive home as well as several bottles of Coca-Cola.

McCarty said the case remains under investigation.
