FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - Deputies with the Florence County Sheriff's Office responded to Byrnes Boulevard in the Country Club of South Carolina regarding a suspicious vehicle on Saturday. Two people are now in custody after allegedly stealing items from a home.

The vehicle was reported as suspicious on East Old Marion Highway earlier in the day.  FCSO Aviation Unit and FCSO Tracking Team were called to attempt to locate the suspects, according to Major Michael Nunn.
