Gloves connect man to 2011 Orangeburg County burglary

ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A 21-year-old man is behind bars after investigators say DNA from gloves left at a 2011 crime scene connected the man to the crime.

The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office charged Marquel Hakeem Bryant of Vance with burglary.

"Bryant's arrest showcases this agency's resolve to investigate cases, follow evidence, and make arrests regardless of the length of time it may take," Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said.

According to Ravenell, on May 26, 2011, deputies were called to a Camden Road home in reference to a burglary.

The victim said among the items stolen were a video game system, prescription drugs, check books, clothes and shoes.

A statement released by the sheriff's office on Tuesday stated that Bryant left a pair of work gloves at the home which were used to identify him as the suspect.
