Deputies release surveillance images in vehicle break-in at church

HUGER, SC (WCSC) - Berkeley County deputies released surveillance photos to identify a suspect in a vehicle break-in at a Huger church.

Deputies investigated a report of a vehicle break-in at the Charity Church on Cainhoy Road at approximately 8 p.m. Monday, according to Berkeley County Chief Deputy Mike Cochran.

Church members said while they were attending services, someone broke out a rear passenger window and stole approximately $350 worth of items from the victim's vehicle.

"It is just terrible that this suspect chose to prey on people while they were worshiping," Berkeley County Sheriff Duane Lewis said. "This person needs to be caught and the citizens have been so great with helping us identify criminals – we really hope that someone is able to help us identify this suspect."

The burglar, believed to be between 35 and 45 years of age, was wearing a light-colored shirt and shorts appeared to be driving a dark-colored full-size SUV believed to be a 1999 to 2000 GMC Yukon or Cadillac Escalade, Cochran said.

Anyone who can identify either of the people in the images is asked to call the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office at (843) 719-4412 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 274-6372.
