Two men were arrested after they allegedly stole a GPS from a vehicle. The victim reportedly fired a shot at the two men as they ran away from his house.
According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, the victim, who lives on Brookfield Drive, was awakened by his dogs barking at about 3 a.m. last Wednesday morning. The victim told police that he heard a car door slam and grabbed his 9mm pistol before heading to his garage. As he exited the garage, the victim said he saw a man exiting one of his vehicles that was parked in the driveway.
According to the report, the victim said that he told the man to stop or he would shoot and the man started running. The victim said he told the man to stop again, but he continued running. The victim told police that he then fired a shot at the man, but was unsure if he had hit the man or not.
According to the report, police located a backpack that contained two GPS units and a cell phone. One of the GPS units belonged to the victim. A vehicle was located on an adjacent street that was registered to Curtis Harrison, 18, of 122 Faith Home Rd. There was no one near the vehicle and residents of the street did not recognize the vehicle.
According to the report, Harrison and another man, Brandon Sumerel, 20, of 125 Duke St. in Ninety Six, spoke to investigators last Friday and gave a full confession to breaking into several vehicles on July 3. Both have been charged with breaking into a motor vehicle and petit larceny.
