A second suspect was hired as a handyman, but the victim says the suspect's hands were used for stealing his personal momentos. See if you can help authorities track them down.
We begin with Wade Paul Calhoun. Horry County Police responded to a Speedway gas station off Highway 90 in Longs earlier this month. The victim says earlier that night she and the suspect were at the Loris Motel on Highway 701 North. She says a woman came into their hotel room to purchase drugs, and when that woman left, the suspect accused the victim of taking his drugs because he was missing more than he just sold. That victim says Calhoun began hitting her in the face and head, that he put his hand and later his shirt around her neck restricting her air flow. She says he pushed her and kicked her in the stomach. The victim says Calhoun then drove her to the Speedway gas station and pushed her out of the car. Calhoun is 27-years-old and is charged with domestic violence in the second degree. His last known address is on Cane Branch Road in Loris.
Horry County Police are also looking for Billy Lee Lucas, Jr. The victim says his University of Miami class rings and one of his wrist watches were stolen from a dresser drawer underneath some clothing in his home. He says no one knew where those items were hidden, and there was no forced entry into his home. The victim says the only people in his home were the cleaning lady and Lucas, Jr., who was hired to do some work in the victim's master bathroom.
