DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Deputies arrested a man Wednesday they believe to have been connected to a burglary and a theft from a motor vehicle in Dorchester County.

On Nov. 13, deputies were dispatched to the 400 block of E. 5th North Street in Summerville in reference to a breaking and entering.

When they arrived, deputies spoke with the complainant who said someone broke into his business and stole various tools including drills, sanders, a saw and flashlights.

The victim said one of his employees came to work and noticed the back window was broken and a trash can was outside.

The business owner told officers when he looked at his security camera system, he saw a white Volvo parked by his building with a person getting out. Said person took the tools from the business and put them into the car.

According to the victim, the video also shows the suspect going into a car on the property. Upon checking the car, the business owner said the only thing missing was a GPS valued at $125. The video was downloaded and put onto a thumb drive which was then given to police.
