Sumter Police make arrests in thefts from unlocked vehicles | Crime
SUMTER, SC (WIS) - Sumter Police have arrested two adults and a teenager in connection to several thefts from vehicles.
25-year-old Joshua Grice and Michael Shane Wilson, 22, both of Sumter, are charged with six counts of breaking and entering and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. They are awaiting a bond hearing at the Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center.
A 16-year-old is charged with six counts of breaking and entering, but his name is not released because of his age. He is in the custody of the Department of Juvenile Justice.
Police say the three are accused of entering unlocked vehicles. Three of the vehicles were at an apartment complex on Alice Drive, where one of the victims witnessed them and alerted police. Officers pulled Grice, Wilson and the teen over and found some of the items that were reported stolen in the truck they were driving.
Police say some of the recovered items may have been taken during incidents that were unnoticed or unreported. If you have items missing from your vehicle, call Sumter Police at 436-2700.
