Three charged in attempted burglary at scrap yard
Three Union County men have been charged after reportedly attempting to steal metal from a local scrap yard.
Adam Connor Kelley, 18, of 209 Erwin Ave., Union, Mitchell Bryan Benton, 24, of 123 Fant St., Union, and Dillon Smith Scott, 21, of 124 Old Pump Station Rd., Union, have all been charged with third degree burglary and possession of stolen nonferrous metals in connection with the incident.
According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to an alarm at Harvely’s Scrap Yard, located at 4612 Hwy. 178 S., just before 2 a.m. Thursday morning. Deputies entered the metal yard on foot and discovered Kelley and Benton inside near the containers which house nonferrous metals. Kelley and Benton, who also goes by “Pop Tart,” both tried to evade deputies, running into a patch of briars where they were apprehended. Deputies located a 1992 Chevy Lumina registered to Smith across the road from the scrap yard. Deputies could not immediately locate Smith.
According to the report, Kelley told deputies that Benton and Smith picked him up from his residence in Union and asked him to help with a “lick.” Kelley said the trio parked across from the scrap yard and entered on foot and loaded the stolen metals in to barrels and were attempting to load them into the vehicle when deputies arrived. Benton initially agreed to cooperate with the investigation, but refused to cooperate once deputies advised him he matched the description of the person on security footage committing other burglaries at the scrap yard.
According to investigators, Smith could not be located at the time of the incident. He was located several hours later in some woods near the incident location.
