LEXINGTON, S.C. – Lexington County deputies arrested a Leesville man Tuesday night after receiving a call that he allegedly broke into a home.
Benjamin Yon, 41, has been charged with first-degree burglary, according to an arrest warrant.
“We received a call from the victim stating Yon was inside her gated neighborhood Tuesday night,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Deputies spotted Yon’s vehicle where the victim told them it would be. Yon said he was waiting for the victim to return home when he was located by deputies.”
Yon and the victim were formerly in a relationship, according to Koon. The victim told deputies she no longer wanted to see Yon.
“Yon had some items in his backseat in plain view when he was talking to deputies,” Koon said. “The victim identified those items as her belongings.”
Yon has been released from the Lexington County Detention Center after meeting the conditions of his bond.
