Man sought in connection to $1k theft at downtown home

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The Charleston Police Department is on the lookout for a man wanted in connection to a theft at a downtown home where more than $1,000 worth of merchandise was stolen.

Investigators are looking for 51-year-old Curtis Foye of Charleston.

On the afternoon of June 14, officers responded to a home on Cypress Street in reference to a larceny. The witness said two unknown suspects entered his parent's home which was being remodeled.

The witness said it all started when the two suspects walked into the home through an unlocked front door as he and his friend were removing garbage from a rear room at the home.

According to an incident report, the first suspect asked the witness for work and told him that he lives by The Citadel and had his Commercial Driver's License suspended.

During the conversation, the witness said he began to feel uncomfortable because of the suspects' suspicious behavior. At that time, both suspects left.

The witness said when he walked into the front living room of the home he noticed that a black iron gate, worth $1,000, was ripped from the wall of the fireplace. Police say a pair of antique water skis and an antique tennis racquet were also missing.

The witness than ran outside and confronted the suspects, who were sitting in a truck.

Authorities say the first suspect was sitting in the driver's seat and holding a box of items and books which were last seen on top of the fireplace in the home. An incident report states the suspect then told the witness,"You need a beer" and drove off on Cypress Street towards Rutledge Avenue.

The first suspect is described a black male, 52 years old, 6'2", 230 to 250 pounds, bald, having a grayish beard and wearing a green button up shirt. Police describe the second suspect as a black male in his 50's, 5'10", a gold cap on his tooth and last seen wearing a red shirt.

Authorities say the vehicle the suspects were seen in was a 2000's Chevrolet truck with a silver or white toolbox and a bicycle in the bed of the truck with "aftermarket rims that resembled ninja stars, but rounded and curved."

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 577-7434.
