Wednesday, Locklair said the suspect was identified as Kenneth Kuan Kwame Zimmon, 21, of Florence. He was reported to stand 6'01" and weigh 175 pounds.

Friday, Locklair said Zimmon was arrested by Darlington County Deputies and U.S. Marshalls. He has been charged with burglary, grand larceny and criminal conspiracy.
