Seven teens arrested in Sumter home invasion

SUMTER, SC (WIS) - Sumter County Sheriff Anthony Dennis believes gang activity may be the cause of a Friday home invasion.

Darius Young, Desario Simmons, Anthony Scarborough, Dayshon Whittaker, Devonta Brown, Quamaine Springer, and Antwan Porcher have all been hit with various burglary charges in connection with the incident.

According to the incident report, two men entered the home on Amberwood Drive with a stolen gun demanding money, and then left in a purple PT Cruiser.

Officers later stopped a vehicle matching that description. Deputies say both suspects along with five others were in that car.

Each teen was denied bond in court on Sunday.
