HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Both Horry County Camping World locations have fallen victim to a string of break-ins dating back to April.

“We've been hit quite commonly over the last few months and it's possible he's the same guy who's been doing it over the last couple of months," said Daniel Knight, general manager. "We just want to get him arrested.” 

Multiple dates in April, two in May and another on June 14 are some of the dates Camping World was hit. Staff originally thought a homeless man was sleeping in the RVs, but soon realized items were missing.

All of the reported break-ins have happened overnight and now there's video surveillance catching the suspect in the act. Knight said the man was seen putting televisions into the back of white Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The video shows the TV in the suspect's arms as he opens the door to put it the Jeep. Then the driver, who police believe is a woman because of her long hair, hops over the center console to the passenger seat for the suspect to get in and drive off.

Store managers at the 501 Camping World location said the suspect isn't taking a TV less than 32 inches wide and seems to take his time, according to surveillance video, spending 20 minutes inside each RV.

Not only is staff upset they've been hit over and over again, so are customers.

According to another store manager, TVs have popped up in pawn shops already and Camping World isn't the only RV dealership or shop that's been hit.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Horry County Police Department at (843) 915-8477.
