A Blackville man is facing a new burglary charge.

Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested David Murry Hoover Jr., 44, of 1200 Double Pond Road on Thursday and charged him with second-degree burglary.

A warrant accuses him of breaking into a Neeses Camp Road building owned by Orangeburg County that is used by the maintenance department.

His warrant alleges video surveillance footage captured Hoover burglarizing the building on Dec. 3, 2017.

The warrant also states that two witnesses will be able to testify to Hoover’s actions.

An employee who arrived at the building on Dec. 4 discovered that someone had broken into the building, according to an incident report.

Three chainsaws and one pole saw were missing.

If Hoover is convicted of second-degree burglary, he faces a maximum of 15 years in prison.

The sheriff’s office arrested Hoover back on April 13, 2016 and charged him with second-degree burglary in connection with an incident at Flora Branch Baptist Church in North. Prosecutors later dropped the charge.
