CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston police say a third teen was arrested this week for a West Ashley home burglary that took place on July 30.

Harold Edward Williams II, 19, of North Charleston, was arrested Tuesday and charged with second-degree burglary and grand larceny.

Phillip Daniel Jewell II, 19, and Ahshaad Owens, 18, were previously arrested and face the same charges in connection to the burglary.

Police say the three suspects kicked in the rear door of a home on Madagascar Court on  July 30 and ransacked the residence.

Investigators say the two teens stole $4,000 worth of jewelry, along with a laptop, two digital cameras, and an iPad 2.

Police say the burglary took place sometime between 9 a.m. and 1:20 p.m. while the victim was away. When she returned, she found dresser drawers on the bedroom floor, an empty jewelry container, desk drawers open, and a damaged rear door.

Jewell, a North Charleston resident, was out on bond for the June 24 burglary of a Wabeek Way home when he took part in this burglary, according to a report.

The suspects are being held at the Charleston County Detention Center.

The investigation is ongoing.
