GEORGETOWN, SC (WCSC) -

Georgetown County Sheriff's Office investigators are looking for two suspects after they say a chase following a shoplifting ended when the suspects crashed a car into a Tractor Supply Co. store.

Sheriff's office spokesperson Carrie Cuthbertson said deputies responded to the Kensington area of North Fraser Street around 4:40 a.m. Saturday after receiving reports of a black Dodge Avenger fleeing a shoplifting incident at the Walmart Supercenter.

Deputies said they saw the Avenger heading south on North Fraser Street and tried to initiate a traffic stop, but as the Avenger was pulling into the parking lot of the Tractor Supply Co., the driver accelerated towards the rear of the building.

The driver then lost control of the car, which crashed head-on into the building.

Four suspects jumped out of the car and ran off, but one suspect was caught during a foot chase, and the other was spotted a short time later on Cribb Court and was arrested, deputies said.

Those suspects are 23-year-old Christopher McWhite, and 27-year-old James Gamble, both from Fayetteville, North Carolina. Deputies turned them over to Georgetown police to face charges.

Two suspects remain at large. If anyone has any information regarding this incident or the identity of the two (2) missing suspects, please contact the Georgetown Police Department at (843) 545-4300.
