One man’s act of kindness sets him up for a burglary and assault, deputies say

ORANGEBURG, S.C. (WOLO) – The Orangeburg County Sheriff says a third suspect has been arrested in connection with an April 18 burglary and assault of an Orangeburg man.

Kenneth Gregg, 35, was charged with two counts of first-degree burglary, armed robbery with a deadly weapon, grand larceny, kidnapping, criminal conspiracy and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Gregg’s bond was deferred to a circuit court judge.

Also Kayla Beason, 25, and Quachelle Ihenetu, 19, both of Orangeburg was previously charged in this case with armed robbery with a deadly weapon, grand larceny and criminal conspiracy.

Ihenetu was further charged with kidnapping and accessory before the fact of a felony. Her bond was set at $22,000.

Bond was set on Beason at $17,500 on April 26.

Orangeburg County Sheriff’s investigators were called to a residence on April 18 where a man said he was robbed of cash and weapons.
The man said he was approached by Beason where she asked about getting a ride to Orangeburg.

While the man decided to take Beason, she made an excuse about going back to the man’s residence where two assailants grabbed him and one then striking him with a golf club.

While the assailants got away with cash and several firearms, they made a second trip inside the home later.

Suspects were able to get away with over $16,000 of money and guns.

The man suffered injuries to his body but declined medical treatment, according to deputies.

More arrests are expected in this ongoing investigation. A first-degree burglary charge carries a sentence up to life in prison.
