BEAUFORT COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

A Beaufort Co. manhunt that put a high school on lockdown has ended with the arrest of one suspect.

Beaufort County sheriff's deputies have 1 15-year-old male in custody following a 3-hour search for two suspects who burglarized a home on Seabrook Rd. Friday morning. The suspect was captured just after 11 a.m.

According to a release, two suspects broke into a home at 70 Seabrook Rd around 9 a.m. Friday morning. The victim, who was at home, locked herself in a bedroom and called law enforcement.

As deputies arrived, two suspects were seen running the home towards Detour Rd.

Deputies set up a parameter in the area of Seabrook Rd. and Detour Rd as officials and a K9 tracking team searched for the suspects. Whale Branch High School was put on lockdown.

Deputies say they have a preliminary identification on the suspect who is still at large, and their investigation is ongoing.

It is unknown if the suspects were successful in stealing any items from the home.

If you have any information on this incident, call Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
