HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) A traffic stop in the Myrtle Beach area has led Horry County Police to four suspects reportedly involved in eight burglaries throughout Horry County.
Sgt. Robert Kegler, spokesman for the Horry County Police Department, said officers responded to a home along Clandon Drive Tuesday in reference to a burglary in progress. Witnesses told police a silver vehicle with four suspects inside was seen leaving the home.
When the vehicle was then spotted by officers, a traffic stop was initiated. The four suspects, Ben Allen Denton, 18, of Woodbury, CT, De'Aisha Lashai Denton, 17, of Surfside Beach, Zachary Braxton Bullock, 18, of Myrtle Beach and Emmanuel La'Don Foriest, 19, of Myrtle Beach were taken into custody.
Kegler said several pieces of property the suspects count not account for were located inside the vehicle.
At that time, an investigation into the foursome was initiated and officers were able to learn that they were linked to seven other burglaries in the Socastee, Forestbrook, Carolina Forest and Conway areas.
They are now facing the following charges and additional charges are expected:
Ben Denton is charged with burglary in the second degree, possession of burglary tools and two counts of attempted burglary.
