Rash of Greenwood County Burglaries Continues
Brian King
Staff Writer

GREENWOOD, SC – The rash of burglaries in Greenwood County continued Wednesday night when two homes were broken into on Wilson Bridge Road in Ninety Six. Police are still searching for the people responsible.

The second of the two burglaries occurred around 7:40pm. Deputies responded to an alarm, but the suspects had already fled the scene after apparently being scared off by the alarm. The Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate a rash of burglaries throughout the county.

The Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office is encouraging everyone to pay attention to wha is going on in their neighborhoods. If they see a suspicious vehicle, they should try to get the license plate number and notify the sheriff’s office immediately. If anyone has any information, no matter how insignificant they feel it may be, they should contact the Major John Murray at the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office. They should also call if they notice anyone suddenly appearing with large screen TVs or computers.

“The Sheriff is committed to stopping these burglars in Greenwood County,” Major Murray told GwdToday in a statement. “Any information the public has concerning these crimes should be immediately reported to the Sheriff’s Office, regardless of how small or insignificant they believe it to be.”

If you have any information concerning these recent burglaries contact the Major John Murray at the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office at (864) 943-8052. Anyone giving information may remain anonymous if they choose.

I agree, Crimewatch will work if ALL neighbors get involved & just citzens out working during the day. If you see anyone loading a TV from a house slow down & take a look, these people seem to be doing this in broad daylight in lost cases. When I am out working I try to always pay attention & if soemthing looks out of place or strange, call it in.Get an alarm, dog,motion lights, get your local law enforcement to send out an officer to show you what you can do to make your home safer. You may still not stop them, but at least make it harder.
