Homeowner thwarts burglary attempt



North Augusta authorities say a homeowner helped thwart a burglary attempt late last week by chasing the suspects until helped arrived.

About 2:40 p.m. on Thursday, Grace Abrigo, of North Augusta, told police that she noticed an unfamiliar black Ford Explorer in the driveway of her McKenzie Street house, according to a North Augusta Department of Public Safety incident report.

When Abrigo attempted to block the SUV in with her car, the suspects drove through the yard. Abrigo followed the SUV until public safety officers caught up, ultimately stopping near the intersection of Carolina Springs and Brigham roads.

Officers found about $2,000 worth of electronics stolen from Abrigo’s home inside the vehicle.

The suspects, Milton Edmond Taylor IV, 22, of Augusta, and Domonique Tyrone Clark, 22, of Augusta, were arrested and booked into the Aiken County Detention center on felony charges of burglary in the second degree.
