CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Police have arrested a teen wanted in connection with several car break-ins off Clement Ferry Road one day after arresting his alleged accomplice.

Charleston Police Department officers say 19-year-old Travis Malone Hoard and 20-year-old Dishos Donita President, both from Summerville, are responsible for car break-ins on Euclid Drive, Peninsula Drive and Rivery Bay Lane between May 18 and May 19.

President was arrested earlier on Thursday.

Evidence from the car break-ins was recovered after an officer initiated a traffic stop on May 19 on Clements Ferry Road where police say the driver of the vehicle refused to stop. The officer then found the vehicle abandoned and still running on Clements Crest Lane.

A police report states that inside the vehicle, the officer found a laptop computer, a GPS, a cell phone, an iPod and four credit cards. Investigators say they were able to return the stolen property to the owners.

Police officials say they were able to identify President and Hoard as the suspects in the car break-ins through the investigation.

Hoard was out on probation for possession of cocaine and unlawful carrying of a pistol, police said.
