MARLBORO COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – The Marlboro County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man wanted in connection with the theft of multiple vehicle batteries on several occasions around Marlboro County, according to Lieutenant Jamie Seales.

Lieutenant Seales said the man deputies seek is 21-year-old Rashawn Ricktavis Covington. The sheriff’s office outlined one incident when Covington allegedly went to a cotton gin on Fayetteville Avenue in Bennettsville and took batteries from several work trucks, and a garage in Clio, SC. For those cases, Covington faces two counts of grand larceny.

Covington is also facing three additional counts of larceny for batteries stolen from truck drivers who parked in a vacant lot in Bennettsville.

The MCSO said there is evidence Covington may be living in Scotland County.

Around the beginning of October, investigators searched a car they say Covington used while carrying out thefts in Laurinburg, NC. They said they found and seized evidence from the car.

Deputies with MCSO said they found and recovered most of the stolen batteries in Scotland County, NC, and Aynor, SC along with evidence they said links Covington to the case.

Covington is described as a black male, five-feet and eleven-inches tall, and weighs 207 pounds. He has lived in Clio, SC and has family there but also has known associates in Laurinburg, NC.

Any person with knowledge of Covington’s whereabouts is asked to call the MCSO at 843-479-5605, or 911 in local jurisdictions. Information provided will be kept confidential.
