Last May, officers responded to Loblolly Lane in the Myrtle Beach area for a burglary complaint.

The victim told officers that sometime between May 19 and May 25, someone entered his home while he was out of town and took three televisions, three brand new sound systems that were still in the box, a soundbar and his wedding ring.

There were no signs of forced entry however, the victim believes Macbay might have been able to pick the handle lock on one of the side doors because he didn’t lock the dead bolt.

The televisions were valued at approximately $600 each. The soundbar was about $400 and each of the sound systems were valued around $200. The wedding ring was worth about $300.

Macbay is charged with first-degree burglary in the first degree.

He’s 23 years old with a last known address of Liberty Church Road in Conway.
