SWANSEA, S.C. — A Lexington County firefighter has been placed on administrative leave after being arrested on burglary charges.

Fifty-seven-year-old Ben Tillman Crider Jr. of Swansea was charged earlier this week with second-degree burglary and petit larceny of less than $2,000.

County administrator Joe Mergo says Crider is a paid firefighter and is on leave.

Crider is accused of breaking into his landlord’s warehouse and taking about $1,300 worth of merchandise.

I like all people the same,

I like all people the same, regardless of profession. Initially, that is. Until I have a reason not to. Ego556, you do read the newspapers and you do have access to the Internet, don't you?
