A Neeses woman has been charged in a burglary in which a substantial amount of jewelry and weapons were taken, according to Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell.
“There’s been a lot of ‘he said, she saids’ in this case that led to a lot of finger pointing,” he said. “But through a lengthy investigation, we’ve sorted through the smoke screens to identify those involved.”
Ravenell said 38-year-old Cassie Proctor has been charged with first-degree burglary, grand larceny, safecracking, criminal conspiracy and malicious injury to real property.
During a hearing on Tuesday, bond was set on the Ninety Six Road woman at $23,125 surety. Should Proctor make bond, she is to submit to electronic monitoring.
Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Investigator Andy Hayes had asked the court for bond to be denied, informing the court Proctor is currently out on federal probation and has other pending charges.
Proctor was taken into custody on Monday in connection with the burglary of a residence off North Road near Wolfton in which inherited jewelry, cash and a substantial firearm collection collectively worth north of $100,000 was taken on Sept. 11.
The homeowner told the court during the bond hearing that what was taken represented his inheritance and life savings.
Ravenell said more warrants are expected to be obtained and more arrests are pending from the ongoing investigation.
