Charleston police charge man in two burglaries

JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) – Charleston police have arrested a suspect wanted in connection with two burglaries that occurred in the same James Island neighborhood Friday afternoon.

Brandon T. Johnson, 23, was arrested Friday and charged with two burglaries that happened within 1 mile of each other. Police officers were dispatched to two different homes within 10 minutes of each other Friday.

The first burglary occurred on Five Oaks Drive. When police arrived, they noticed the back door had been kicked open. According to the victims, the burglary happened between 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Friday. The victims told police that the suspects stole a 50-inch plasma TV, a diamond ring and a DVD-disc video camera.

The second burglary occurred on Dawn Drive. The victim, who was house-sitting for her parents, said that the only item she noticed stolen was a 24-inch flat-screen TV. The victim said that when she came home she noticed the rear door had been kicked open and several interior doors that were closed when she left were now open.

Johnson was released on bond on Jan. 14 on a charge of receiving stolen goods by the Charleston County Sheriff's Office. In these most recent crimes, he is charged with two counts of second degree burglary by Charleston police.
