By Rochelle Dean


Lexington County Sheriff’s Department detectives are seeking help from citizens in identifying the person responsible for committing car break-ins at a business in Lexington County early Saturday morning.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said detectives on Saturday, June 14 released a video of the suspect. The suspect is a white male driving a greenish 2-door vehicle, possibly a Mitsubishi Eclipse which appears to have a faded hood.

The incident occurred at a restaurant on the 2200 block of Bush River Road at approximately 10:15 a.m. on Saturday, June 14. The suspect backed his vehicle into a parking space and was caught on camera rummaging through several nearby vehicles. The video can be viewed on the Sheriff’s Department Facebook page, www.facebook.com/lcsd.fb

Metts asked anyone with information about the suspect or the car break-ins to contact the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department at (803) 785-8230 or CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC. Citizens also can provide information anonymously by accessing the Crime Tip link on the Sheriff’s Department web site (www.lexingtonsheriff.com).

Lead him to his rightful place Lord....THE BIG HOUSE. When he arrives - AND HE WILL - lock the door. What a way to spend life....stealing and throwing away his FREEDOM...not a wise choice at all.
