Stolen Car Crashed into Area Store

Lexington, S.C (WOLO) — A suspected car thief is in custody after the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department says they spotted a man driving a car they believed was reported stolen Friday morning.

After trying to pull the truck over, authorities say the driver fled but didn’t make it far. Officials say he crashed into the side of the Garnet and Black Traditions along Bowers Parkway before jumping out of the truck and fleeing on foot.

The driver of that car was arrested a short time later.

Authorities say the store is back open for business and no one was injured in the crash.

Charges are pending.
