LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Deputies have arrested a 17-year-old accused of breaking into homes and watching people sleep.
The Lexington County Sheriff's Office arrested Caleb Matthew Dawkins and charged him with three counts of first degree burglary and four counts of voyeurism.
"Based on the information investigators have compiled, these incidents happened in April and May at homes on Crystal Lake Drive and Amalfi Drive in Chapin," Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. "The suspect lives near the homes he was breaking and looking into."
According to investigators, Dawkins broke into the homes to watch people who were sleeping or otherwise unaware of his presence.
He was arrested near his home Thursday morning after a family member handed him over to a deputy.
Authorities say Dawkins was released from the Lexington County Detention Center Friday after posting bail.
GPS monitoring and house arrest were set as conditions of his bond, according to Koon.
"Detectives are still working on these cases," Koon said. "If anyone has information about any potential incidents involving Dawkins, they should call Crimestoppers at 888-CRIME-SC."
