FLORENCE COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A 17-year-old was arrested in connection with a bicycle that was removed from outside of Dollar General, located on 5305 South Irby Street in Effingham, on or about Feb. 28 at around 3:20 p.m., according to a press release from Florence County Sheriff’s Office.

A juvenile victim rode his bicycle to the store, parked it outside, and went inside the store.

Investigators allege that while he was inside Brent Alonzo Bacote took the bicycle and left in a BMW.

Store video surveillance caught the incident and the images of the suspect.

Bacote will appear Wednesday before a Florence County Magistrate for a bond hearing.
