COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Twin brothers from the Lowcountry who stole nearly 100 guns received 15-year sentences each.

Prosecutors say Linzell Lamar Williams and Lindell Marlin Williams, both 20, each pleaded guilty Tuesday at the Allendale County Courthouse to four counts each of second-degree burglary.

"They are double trouble, and what the one does, the other does," Assistant Solicitor Tameaka Legette said. "Together, they broke into houses across Hampton and Colleton counties, terrorizing the community and its residents for far too long."

According to authorities, the pair stole electronics, money, guns, ammunition, gaming systems.

"They stole at least 85 firearms from Hampton and Colleton county residences," prosecutors said.

In addition, prosecutors announced burglary charges against three other co-defendants -- Esser Lyndel Williams, Jr., Sean Eric Kirkland and Tyshawn Dywarall Frazier -- are still pending.
