Aiken County and SC authorities hunting two burglary suspects

Aiken County authorities are searching for two men they say are involved in a burglary at 518 Rainbow Falls Road in Graniteville on Thursday morning.

Capt. Dave Myers, of the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office, said the bloodhound team, along with a helicopter from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, conducted a search of the area between the 7 and 11 mile markers on Interstate 20 in Aiken County earlier today. The bloodhound team recovered clothing believed to have been worn by the burglars, Capt. Myers said.

The men rode to the home on a stolen motorcycle, broke in, and fled the area on foot, Capt. Myers said. Authorities had little description of the two suspects other than they were black males.

Anyone with information on the individuals should contact the Aiken County Sheriffs Office at (800) 922-9709. Individuals can also call Crime Stoppers of the Midlands at (888) 599-TIPS. Callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of between $50 and $1000.
