Two Greenwood teenagers are facing multiple charges after Greenwood police reportedly found the pair in a Ridgewood Circle home and a number of stolen items in their vehicle.
William Hunter Cameron, 18, of 114 Colonial Drive, and Kristopher Dean Butler, 18, 0f 427 New Castle Rd., were arrested and are each facing charges of first degree burglary, failure to stop on lawful command, resisting arrest and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
According to a Greenwood Police Department report, a woman called 911 to report burglars in her home just after 4 a.m. Tuesday morning. The woman told dispatchers she snuck out of her bedroom window and saw the burglars’ vehicle parked in the road near her residence. The woman told dispatchers she saw some of her belongings in the vehicle, removed the keys from the vehicle and went to her neighbor’s house to call police.
According to the report, officers arrived moments later and took position at the front and rear doors. The two suspects saw police outside and attempted to run. The two teens split up, but both ran toward the wood line behind the residence and were both eventually caught. Cameron shoved both hands under his body in an effort to avoid being handcuffed, to no avail. After being handcuffed, Cameron had to be forced to walk back to the patrol cars. Butler likewise attempted to keep police from handcuffing him. Once handcuffed, Butler walked back to the patrol vehicles.
According to the report, police found several necklaces in Cameron’s pocket which the victim identified as belonging to her. Police also searched the path Cameron traveled while running and found a Coach wallet which belonged to the victim. Police found a digital camera in Butler’s pocket which the victim identified as belonging to her. Police also searched the path traveled by Butler when he ran from officers and found a .32 caliber handgun. The victim said some of the items in the vehicle belonged to her and some did not. The entire residence was in disarray.
Investigators say more charges could be forthcoming for both teens.
