Suspected Fort Mill burglars caught hours after fleeing

FORT MILL — Police have people in custody who are suspects in a string of recent burglaries.

At approximately 4 a.m. this morning, on this date Fort Mill Police Department officers went to the 1600 block of Paddock Lane, in the Berkshire Apartments, after getting a call about a possible breaking and entering of a vehicle in progress, according to a statement from police.

The caller provided a partial description of two people and two vehicles that were apparently leaving the area at that time. Officers said they saw two people running from the scene and later discovered 22 vehicles in the parking lot with the windows broken out.

Officers then recovered one of the suspects’ vehicles in the parking lot, which was determined to have been previously stolen from Charlotte, according to the statement.

Officers secured the scene and a K-9 tracking unit responded to begin a search for the suspects. After information and description of the suspects and the other vehicle were given to area law enforcement agencies, officers with the Tega Cay Police Department and the York County Sheriff’s Office stopped a vehicle and arrested several suspects, including the ones who fled the scene when Fort Mill police arrived, according to the statement from police.

Neither a police report nor the names of the suspects were available Monday afternoon.
