Colleton County sheriff's deputies on Saturday arrested a Walterboro teen accused of burglarizing his cousin's home.
Oshalum Grant, 17, of Miley Street, is charged with first-degree burglary, Colleton County court records show.
Ronjrel Farmer, 18, of Pine Needle Drive, and Shyheem Roden, 18, of Brittlebank Road, both of Walterboro, also were charged with accessory after the fact to a felony, court records show.
The charges were filed in connection with a burglary that occurred around 12:30 p.m. Saturday on Red Comet Road, according to an incident report.
A woman reported to deputies that she arrived at her home and saw a gold Crown Victoria parked in her driveway. The driver and a passenger were sitting inside the vehicle with the doors open, the report said.
The woman pulled her vehicle behind the Crown Victoria and asked its driver why he was at her home, deputies said. He replied that he was just dropping off Grant, the woman's cousin, according to the report.
The woman could hear someone moving around in her house and saw that her kitchen and bedroom windows were open, deputies said.
When Grant walked out of the home, he told the woman he wasn't doing anything wrong, the report said. Then, he left in the Crown Victoria with the two other teens.
Sheriff's deputies pulled over the vehicle shortly after receiving a call about the burglary.
A .40-caliber Taurus pistol and four cellphones that were missing from the home were found inside the car, deputies said.
All three suspects were arrested and held at the Colleton County jail pending a bond hearing, deputies said.
