ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Lowcountry investigators have arrested one person and are looking for another after residents at an apartment complex called police after seeing some suspicious activity.
The Orangeburg County Sheriff's office has charged 20-year-old Jeremy Summers with breaking into a motor vehicle, two counts of tampering with a vehicle, and criminal conspiracy.
Bond was set on the Lawton Road man during a hearing Friday at $7,250 total.
Warrants have also been obtained for 20-year-old Corey Calloway of Representative Circle in Orangeburg. Investigators say Calloway is being sought on charges of breaking into a motor vehicle, criminal conspiracy, and two counts of tampering with a vehicle.
Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said that around 2 a.m. Thursday residents of Glenfield Apartments called law enforcement after spotting two men attempting to enter vehicles parked at the Columbia Road property.
