Man Arrested for Stealing Cellular Telephones from Distribution Center


Lexington County Sheriff’s Department deputies in cooperation with Amazon arrested a 32-year-old Orangeburg man on Thursday, July 11 on charges that the man stole three cellular telephones with a combined value of $1,224 from an Amazon Fulfillment Center on 12th Street Extension near West Columbia. The man worked for a contractor at the distribution center.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said deputies arrested Sedrick Sharron Guest, 32, of 2864 Crown Avenue, Orangeburg, on an arrest warrant on a charge of petit larceny. Guest was released from the Lexington County Detention Center on Friday, July 12 after posting bond.

An arrest warrant alleges that between May 6 and May 11 Guest stole one Samsung Galaxy S-4 cellular telephone and two Samsung Galaxy S-3 Mini cellular telephones from the Amazon Fulfillment Center at 4400 12th Street Extension, Metts said. Guest worked at the facility as an employee for SMX, a contractor at the distribution center. Guest removed the three cellular telephones from inventory at the distribution center, concealed the cellular telephones in food containers and then conspired to remove the cellular telephones from the distribution center.

Deputies recovered one of the stolen cellular telephones on Guest’s person, Metts said. Guest told deputies that he sold another one of the stolen cellular telephones at a cellular telephone store in Orangeburg.
