Three teens arrested in pawn shop burglary

Three teens, two of which are juveniles, were arrested early Saturday morning after police say they broke into an area pawn shop and stole several handguns.

According to a report from the Greenwood Police Department, police were dispatched to Lakelands Pawn and Gun, located at 1421 Bypass 72 NE, after a report of a break-in at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday morning. When police arrived, they observed a window broken out of the building as well as a glass gun case. The owner of the business told police that his wife observed someone break into the building on surveillance cameras.

According to the report, the surveillance video showed three individuals walk across the street from Gary Russ, through the Sonic parking lot and into the back parking lot of the pawn shop. After several minutes, one of the subjects broke a window with a large rock and then broke a glass gun case with the rock. The suspects grabbed six handguns: two Taurus .22 caliber handgun, a Heritage RM .22 caliber handgun, a Ruger .22 caliber handgun, a Chiappa .22 caliber handgun and a Rossi .22 caliber handgun. The total value of the guns was $2,088.92.

According to the report, police issued a BOLO for the three subjects. They were spotted in Uptown Greenwood. Officers that were out with the three suspects located the handguns on two of the suspects. One of the suspects was identified as Kijafa Martin, 18, of 247 Wisewood Circle. The other two suspects were a 14-year-old male and a 15-year-old male. Martin was arrested and taken to the Greenwood County Detention Center. The juveniles were taken to the Department of Juvenile Justice in Columbia.

All three teens have been charged with first degree burglary and grand larceny. Martin has also been charged with felon in possession of a firearm.
