The Village

Two juveniles have been arrested after a string of break-ins at a medical park, Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said.

“These two juveniles would hit some business at The Village about every other night,” Ravenell said. “But we recovered evidence during an intense investigation that resulted in identifying these suspects.”

Ravenell said the names of the suspects cannot be released due to their age.

The two 15-years-olds were each taken into custody on charges including one count of second-degree burglary, one count of third-degree burglary, one count of grand larceny, 10 counts of malicious injury to real property, one count of malicious injury to personal property, three counts of petit larceny and one count of breaking and entering a vehicle.

The two are being housed at the Department of Juvenile Justice until their cases can be heard in Family Court.

In September, business workers in The Village began reporting property damage that occurred at night.

Nearly $3,000 in damage and missing property were reported from multiple businesses.

One business broken into was vacant, but damages to the window were estimated to be around $400.

Workers at another reported $15,000 in checks made out to the company for payment were stolen.

Investigators developed evidence taken from the break-ins that led to the two juveniles.

Investigators Jared Kittrell and Steven Thompson are leading the ongoing investigation.
