MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - A judge set bond Thursday for a wanted convicted sex offender from Colorado who was found with a 16-year-old in Mount Pleasant.

Police say Gregory Alan Whittemore and the teenager, who were found Tuesday, were living out of Whittmore's car.

A judge set his bond at $30,000, and jail records state Whittemore is being held for Colorado authorities.

Court affidavits state Whittemore is a registered sex offender, wanted in Colorado and the teen was listed as a missing person and runaway from Colorado.

Investigators say Whittemore encouraged the youth to break into cars and steal items. Court papers state the duo stole a wallet from one car and used the victim's credit cards to purchase items at a pharmacy and department store.

Mount Pleasant Police charged Whittemore with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, breaking into a motor vehicle and financial transaction card fraud.

There is no word on whether the youth has been returned to Colorado.
