A Columbia County sheriff's deputy talks to a motorist entering the Rivershyre subdivision on Thursday afternoon. Police were searching for two burglary suspects that fled from their SUV Thursday morning in neighboring Woodruff Landing subdivision.

Timothy Ware, 25, of Evans, was found in the Rivershyre Subdivision following a tip, Morris said. A third suspect, known only as "Bear," remains at large.

Earlier in the day, deputies said they arrested Maurice Crawford, 30, of Evans, after a brief vehicle chase in which the other two suspects fled on foot.

Deputies were called just after 11 a.m. by a resident who reported a suspicious vehicle, a green Ford Expedition, slowly driving through residential neighborhoods off Mullikin Road.

Police attempted to stop the vehicle, which led them on a brief pursuit before the driver abandoned the SUV on Woodruff Court and the occupants fled on foot.

Crawford was immediately taken into custody, and police soon set up around the area that includes Woodruff Landing, Rivershyre and Maple Ridge subdivisions.

Police are investigating whether items including a flat-screen television found inside the SUV are stolen, Morris said.

They were targeting attendees of the "Tea Party Party". They also read the daily obits. Are we not blessed to live in this day and age?

"Unleash the hounds, Smithers...."
When a family member dies, if you list the date and time of the service in the newspapers, ALWAYS have at least on person stay in their home during the service to guard it or the thieves will be there. Ask any funeral director and they will confirm this.

AC, will I get this pulled if I say I hope that the K-9's found the one hiding under the house and that I hope the K-9 bit the mess out of him?
