Two Fox Creek Students Arrested After Tuesday Morning Burglary

web posted June 11, 2014

MERRIWETHER A Cheves Creek couple called 911 to report a burglary in progress Tuesday morning after the husband noticed a truck pull up on neighboring property he owns. He went to investigate and saw two young white males in a double car carport trying to remove the battery out of his bass boat. He yelled at the teens who fled the scene in a black truck, but not before he was able to write down the tag number.

The truck came back to the address of a burglary suspect that is currently out on bond from a March 9 arrest for burglary in the first degree, two counts, grand larceny and larceny charges. One deputy tried to intercept the truck on Currytown Road but the truck sped off and lost the deputy. A second deputy arrived at the home and found the two teens in the back of the house washing the truck.

With the eyewitness descriptions matching to "a tee" and the tag number matching, both teens were arrested. One, a 16-year-old juvenile, was referred to Family Court to handle the charges. The second suspect, Jacob Anderson Britt, 17, was taken into custody and booked on charges of burglary in the third degree and larceny.

Britt, who was wearing an ankle monitoring bracelet at the time, was currently out on bond from two burglary in the first degree charges from early March. The tracking devise was used to solve the two burglaries in Merriwether that had taken place just days prior, and included the arrest of his older brother Jeffery Britt - who remains in custody on similar charges.

Edgefield Count Chief Investigator Randy Doran said he will try to have Jacob Britt's bond revoked due to the arrest. With a recent rash of burglaries to outbuildings, Inv. Doran said they will be pulling the records from Britt's ankle bracelet over a time period. "Who knows, we might just solve a few more cases."
