FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – A Myrtle Beach man who was wanted in connection with an alleged sexual assault of an 8-year-old was arrested and charged for allegedly breaking in to three schools in Florence late last month.

“For the last couple of weeks, we have experienced a number of burglaries at some local businesses as well as some schools,” said Major Carlos Raines with the Florence Police Department.

Enrico Jones was arrested in Florence after 5 p.m. Friday and charged in connection with break-ins and burglaries at Delmae Heights Elementary School on Wednesday night and Williams Middle School on Thursday night, according to Major Carlos Raines with Florence Police. Jones was with five counts of first-degree burglary and five counts of having tools to commit burglary.

“We had been working on this, we had been increasing our patrols in the area where these break-ins were taking place. We were able to recover some video of the suspect in the act of breaking in to these various locations," Raines said.

Jones is alleged to have broken into Delmae Heights Elementary School Wednesday night and stole money from the school's vending machines and a cafeteria drawer, according to officials. Officials also believe Jones broke in to Williams Elementary through the exterior doors behind the cafeteria; however, no items were reported missing. Police said Jones alson broke into Carver Elementary School.

Last week, Horry County Police also announced Jones was wanted in connection with an alleged sexual assault of an 8-year-old girl in Horry County in September.
