HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Law enforcement are searching for a “suspicious person” Friday morning in the Cameron Village neighborhood, according to information from the Horry County Police Department.

Police are searching the area around Registry Drive and Bonita Loop after multiple residents called about seeing a man around their homes during the overnight hours.

HCPD says they have been on scene since about 3:30 a.m. Friday.

Neighbors are worried.

“I moved away so that I don’t have to hear this stuff," Joe Kingsley said. "And it’s happening.”

One man says the suspicious person tried to break into his home.

“About five minutes after I got to work, my brother called and said someone tried to break in the back door," Eric Shaw said.

Shaw says he’s taking steps to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

“He got me this time,” Shaw said. "But he won’t get me again. I’m going to protect my home. I’m putting cameras up this afternoon, basically for his protection.”

If you live in the area and see anything suspicious, contact Horry County police.
