Posted: Updated:

MARION, SC (WMBF) - City of Marion Police officers have arrested two men and charged them in separate burglary incidents. Investigations into the burglaries continue and more charges are expected, officers said Friday afternoon.

Terrance D. Charles, 19, was arrested and charged with second degree burglary and failure to stop on command.

The charges stem from an incident at a home on the corner of East Oakenwald and Main Streets, on Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 8 a.m. According to the incident report, officers were patrolling in the area when they made contact with Charles, who was carrying a backpack.

As officers began questioning him, Charles dropped the backpack and ran. The officers pursued and caught up with him. Stolen items, including a digital camera, a camcorder, Nooks, and other personal items were recovered.

Upon further investigation, it was determined that the home at 400 West Oakenwald had been entered through a broken rear window.

In another incident, Justin Levan Howard, 24, of Latta, was arrested and charged with possession of stolen goods, possession of burglary tools and violation of a beginners permit.

Officers found Howard in a parked car behind a Fairlee Street business around 1:50 a.m. Friday and began questioning him.

Howard allowed officers to search the vehicle, in which they found a back pack with several items. According to the incident report, among the items were old spoons, a jewelry box, screw driver, wrench, jewelry, and prescription medicines. Additionally, officers searched the trunk of the white Mercury, which held many other household and personal items.

Continuing their investigation, officers discovered that a home at 209 East Fairlee Street had its back door pried open. Entering the residence, officers found three bags next to the back door, filled with other personal merchandise.

The two suspects have been booked into and are being held in the Marion County Detention Center.
