JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

Deputies are searching for a man who failed to break in to a James Island gas station, then told a bystander about the incident. 

Officials with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office say it happened at the Sunoco on 2019 Maybank Highway on Oct. 6 at 9:10 p.m. 

A deputy responded to the gas station and noticed that the front door had visible damage from someone attempting to get in. 

A witness said he was walking and came across a man lying on a bench at a church near the intersection of Woodland and Maybank Highway. 

According to the witness, the man said that the Sunoco had been broken into and that "the door was hard to unlock."

The witness said the comment by the man was odd, and he decided to contact the sheriff's office. 

The witness said when he left the area, the man was still on the bench. 

"He was later seen around 11pm laying on a nearby bench but was not located by deputies," CCSO officials said. 

The sheriff's office describes the suspect as between 30-40 years old,  5'10 with a stocky build.  

Authorities also released a picture of the suspected burglar.
