Two women are facing multiple charges in connection to the burglary of a concession stand at a Pelion sports complex.
Brittney McDaniel (above left) and Kayla Wallace were arrested Friday morning after a brief pursuit near Cooper Park, according to deputies.
“A deputy responded to a call of a burglary in progress and saw McDaniel and Wallace leaving the concession stand as he arrived at the park,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “They jumped in their car and initiated a pursuit after the deputy activated his blue lights and siren.”
The brief chase ended on Pine Street, according to Koon. The deputy found an ax and a metal hook tool in the car with the women. He also located other items identified as property of the sports complex.
“The deputy also found open containers of alcohol and an unmarked bottle of prescription pills in the car,” Koon said.
McDaniel is charged with third degree burglary, possession of burglary tools, open container of beer and liquor in vehicle, minor in possession of beer and liquor and possession of a schedule II narcotic.
Wallace is charged with third degree burglary, possession of burglary tools, failure to stop for blue lights, open container of beer and liquor in vehicle and possession of a schedule II narcotic.
