Lexington County teens arrested after crime spree

Two Lexington County teens face numerous charges related to a series of crimes this week.

Tristian Harmon of Leesville and Skylar Shuey of Gilbert broke into Bethlehem Baptist Church where they vandalized property and broke into a safe, according to investigators. Detectives have also tied the 17-year-olds to car break-ins and the theft of a golf cart near the church.

“Based on our investigation, these two did some heavy damage to the inside of the church Monday,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Fortunately, investigators returned several items back to the church and recovered the golf cart.”

Harmon and Shuey are charged with second-degree burglary, malicious injury to a place of worship, safecracking, two car break-ins, grand larceny and conspiracy, according to arrest warrants.

They are being held in the Lexington County Detention Center. Both are expected to appear in bond court at 3 p.m. #LESM #LCSDnews

Did you know we have a Summer Adventure Squad with Saluda Shoals Park and ACF Midlands to teach kids healthy eating habits and life skills?

Today was wildlife day, where the children learned about animals and how to respect wild animals. They also got to make omelets, smell fresh herbs and make healthy snacks.

Here's a sneak peak, but there's more to come! #LESM #LCSDnews

You’ll have to look through some patio railing on this one, but we need your tips on a burglary caught on camera.

Two people drove up in a truck and stole some things last month from a home in the 700 block of Founders Road.

If the truck looks familiar to you or if you know anything about this case, call Crimestoppers at 888-Crime-SC.

Happy Friday, even if the rain is on its way! Drivers: remember to leave plenty of room between you and the car in front of you, especially when the roads are slick.

Our deputies will be on these roads throughout the weekend patrolling for speeding, DUI and seat belts.
