NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - According to North Charleston police, four suspects were charged with Attempted Burglary 2nd Degree in connection to an incident that took place on Thursday night.

According to police, officers responded to CBC Industries on Rivers Avenue at 11:19 p.m. in response to a report the business was being burglarized.

The citizen reportedly informed the North Charleston police four black males had been witnessed breaking the side window of the business, jumping the chain link fence, and were in the process of breaking another glass window and the front door of the business.

Officials say the citizen was able to describe the clothing of each person.

Officers say they identified three males matching the descriptions provided approximately 100 yards from the business on Target Street.

A police report identifies Savone Bowens, Johnelle Reaves, Jr., and a juvenile as the three subjects.

The subjects were transported to the North Charleston Police Department in separate vehicles, authorities say.

While being interviewed by detectives, the subjects reportedly implicated each other in the attempted burglary of the business.

Officials say the subjects provided verbal confessions recorded on audio and video.

According to the police report, the fourth suspect was a juvenile located on Taylor Street while officers spoke with the mother of one of the juvenile suspects.

The fourth suspect was taken into custody after admitting to the attempted burglary, police say.

According to investigators, the key holder of the business did not find anything significant removed, and he proceeded to secure the window.

Bowens and Reaves were charged with Attempted Burglary 2nd Degree and transported to the Charleston County Detention Center and await bond hearing.

The two juveniles were charged with the same offense, and were released to their guardians on a Custodial Promise.
