HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Two men were arrested and charged with burglary after allegedly stealing a safe containing $30,000 dollars and $20,000 worth of rare coins from the stepfather of the of the men.

On Friday, December 9, police responded to a home near Myrtle Beach, where the victim told police that wife’s son broke into the home and stole the safe, in addition to numerous firearms. The man said he knew it was the son because he was the only person who knew where the money, and only the safe was taken.

The next day, police responded to America’s Home Place motel on Waccamaw Boulevard, where a family member had located the suspect, 23-year-old Jesse Cannon, the report states. An officer tried to detain Cannon, and a struggle ensued. Cannon was taken into custody and taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries he sustained during the struggle.

Police entered the hotel room and found the safe, several syringes, and a substance that field-tested positive for heroin.

Cannon was arrested and charged with second-degree assault and battery, burglary, and grand larceny. According to police, 21-year-old Charles Jason Crum is a co-defendant in the case; he was charged with first-degree burglary and grand larceny. Both men were booked into the J. Reuben Long Detention Center, and remain incarcerated as of Tuesday afternoon.

    Flooding across the area is causing people to leave their homes behind, wondering when then they can return. People who live in the Brunswick Plantation said during previous storms water never came up to their driveways, but are experiencing a much different story here as more than 3 feet of water is over taking their homes.
