CONWAY, S.C. (WMBF) – A man is behind bars after police said he broke into or attempted to break into several Conway businesses.

Jeremy Shelton, 42, faces four burglary charges, four attempted burglary charges and obtaining goods by false pretenses.

Shelton is accused of breaking into or trying to break into River City Accents, 3rd Avenue Grill, Fostering Hope, Daisy Fair Flowers, Mermaids Parlor, Essential Massage and Wellness, Carolina Appliance and Furniture, First Baptist Church and Pawn South.
