BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Two people have been arrested following the attempted suspicious sale of a vehicle.

On Thursday, someone contacted the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office regarding what they believed to be a suspicious sale of a Polaris RZR 1000, 4 seater. Deputies say the vehicle was nearly brand-new and being sold without a title for $15,000.

A brand new one with a title lists for nearly $4,000 more, according to the sheriff's office.

This gave the potential buyer a thought that the deal too good to be true so he contacted police.

Deputies and detectives investigated the situation and found that the Polaris was stolen from Pennsylvania. After executing a search warrant at the Adam Street address in Moncks Corner, detectives found a 2018 Kubota Zero Turn commercial mower that was stolen from New Jersey and a 2015 Ford Transit 250 van that was reported stolen out of North Charleston.

The total value of the stolen vehicles was estimated at $57,500.

Arrested for property-related crimes were Melinda Lee Lynch, 39 and Guy Allen Moreland, Jr, 25.

They were both transported to the Hill Finklea Detention Center pending warrant service and a bond hearing.
