NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Officials with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office say they have arrested a second suspect in connection to the theft of more than $54,000 worth of steel from a North Charleston company.

Investigators say deputies located and arrested 34-year-old Travis Nathaniel Green on Sunday and charged him with two counts of grand larceny and obtaining goods by false pretenses. Green was given an $80,000 bond.

Authorities had also arrested Robert McCleod Grant last week for the incident and charged him with two counts of grand larceny and two counts of obtaining goods by false pretenses.

According to an incident report, the theft occurred at Hesco Bastion, Inc., located at 2821 Azalea Drive, early Saturday morning.

Police say an employee arrived at the business around 5:45 a.m. and saw a white International flatbed truck filled with 15 baskets of steel coils parked near the side of the business. The employee told police he did not think anything of it.

When the employee went inside, police say the truck sped away, leaving tire marks on the ground. 

Officials say the stolen metal is worth an estimated $54,320.
