Women charged with several burglaries around SC


PICKENS, S.C. (AP) — Pickens County sheriff's deputies say they have put a stop to a pair of women who burglarized homes in a half-dozen counties across South Carolina.

Investigators said 41-year-old Brenda Branham was arrested in Pickens County and 53-year-old Carolyn Rodriguez was arrested in Horry County.

Authorities say the pair broke into homes in Pickens, Horry, Aiken, Marlboro, Newberry and Saluda counties, stealing at least 30 guns, along with jewelry, televisions and cash.

Investigators in other counties also are looking at open cases to see if the women were involved.

Both women remain in jail. It wasn't clear whether they had lawyers.
