Posted: Updated:
GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Authorities say a concerned citizen's call led to the arrest of a 29-year-old man suspected of breaking into cars and stealing items on Pawleys Island.

The Georgetown County Sheriff's Office arrested 29-year-old Brandon Cole. 

Deputies responded to Thrasher Court on Pawleys Island in reference to a suspect in dark clothing going through a vehicle and taking off on a bike.

As deputies were searching the area, a suspect matching the description by witnesses was spotted and detained.

An incident report states investigators located several cell phones, iPods, tools and unopened cigarettes on the suspect.

The items were then returned to the victims that could be located. Cole is charged with four counts of breaking into a motor vehicle and three counts of simple larceny.

Cole was locked up at the Georgetown County Detention Center.
