BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Two people are behind bars after detectives found $30,000 worth of construction material stolen from a Lowcountry school. 

Officials with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office arrested 42-year-old Charles Aaron Beaudrot of Goose Creek and charged him with possession of stolen goods with property crime enhancement.

Shannon Happy Hutto, 39, of Bonneau was also charged with obtaining money by false pretense. 

The suspects' charges stem from an incident that started on Tuesday when detectives responded to a home in Weeks Avenue in unincorporated Goose Creek to help the Hanahan Police Department with search warrants for stolen property regarding the burglary of Bowen’s Corner Elementary School.

A report states detectives found evidence of the burglary and recovered a "great deal" of stolen tools, copper piping and the vehicle used to transport the stolen property. 

"Detectives also located over $30,000.00 of stolen construction materials that was taken from a contractor working at the Porter Gaud School in Charleston around November 2017," BCSO officials said. 

In addition, a roadway construction sign was located on the property. The sign was stolen four years ago from Hanahan and is the property of Berkeley County, deputies said. 

The suspects were locked up at the Hill Finklea Detention Center. 

The burglary at Bowen's Elementary School remains under investigation by the Hanahan Police Department.

Anyone with information regarding the school burglary should contact the Hanahan Police Department at 843-747-5711 or Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
