Vinny's Pizzeria Burglary Suspect Now in Custody

web posted August 23, 2014

EDGEFIELD   A man wanted in an October 16, 2012 burglary at Vinny's Pizzeria is now in custody at the Edgefield County Detention Center after serving time in Georgia on an unrelated charge. Corey Leon Frazier, 31, is being held on a $30,000 bond for single charge of burglary in the first degree for his part of the burglary. Fingerprint evidence found at the scene was used to help identify Frazier.

In the burglary, a total four large flat screen televisions were stolen, two which were hanging over the bar areas and two others that had just been purchased and were still in the box. An estimate on the value of the TV's is around $2,000. An estimate on the amount of damage done by busting out a glass door to gain entry, tearing out the TV's off their mounting, and a cash register was not available.

Our report on the burglary at the time investigators were called to the scene stated that only two flat screen were taken. It was not until investigators met with the owner at a later date that they learned of the other televisions still in the box waiting to be installed.

At this time it is unknown if Frazier acted alone in the burglary. He will have a "first appearance" in General Sessions Court in October. His prior criminal record was not available for this report.

If convicted for burglary in the first degree, depending on his criminal history, he could face up to life in prison. In south Carolina, a life sentence means until death.

Calls to obtain a booking photo before press time went unanswered.
