DARLINGTON COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Three people have been arrested after two men allegedly forced their way into a Darlington County home and threatened the residents with violence, according to officials.
Darlington County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a report of a home invasion at about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday in the area of Iseman Road, off Potato House Road.
A juvenile male reported that two men forced their way into the home, and one was armed with a rifle. They made threats to the residents, and then left the home without taking any items or hurting anyone. The caller reported that they left in a black SUV driven by a woman.
James Franks Polson Jr., 60, James Bryce Futrell, 27, and Lauren Elizabeth Timmons, 27, were later taken into custody. Polson has been charged with first-degree burglary, according to Darlington County Detention Center records. Futrell was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted violent felon.
Futrell and Timmons were arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance last week after authorities found an active meth lab at a home on Riverview Road. A child was taken from the home and is now with a relative.
A bond hearing for the three suspects from Wednesday's home invasion is scheduled for Thursday.
