HORRY COUNY, SC (WMBF) – Horry County Police found a home near Conway burglarized after checking on it because the family said their son's X-Box Live account was logged into while they were out of town, according to a police report.

Jeremy Gore, 18, was arrested Monday and charged with first-degree burglary and safecracking in connection with the burglary, according to records from J. Reuben Long Detention Center. Richard Gresham, 22, was arrested on Friday in connection with this incident. He has been charged with burglary and safecracking.

According to the police report, Horry County Police responded to the home on Tidway Circle, southwest of Conway, on January 4. A friend of the family's son contacted him and said that his X-Box Live account was signed into at 3:30 a.m. that day, while the family was out of town.

Police found a window screen was ripped off and the back door of the house was unlocked, according to the report. The master bedroom appeared rummaged-through, and a safe in the bedroom appeared to be pried open, with a hammer and knife laying nearby.

The victim told police that there were a total of 12 guns in the safe and around the house, according to the report. Police lifted a fingerprint from the window where entry was made, and talked to a neighbor, who told them about a person seen walking in the neighborhood a few days before.

As of Tuesday, Gore and Gresham remained incarcerated at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
