October 5, 2018

A Warrenville man pleaded guilty Thursday to burglary and drug possession in January.

Stephan Cole Bogdansky, 28, of the 200 block of Piney Heights Road, pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree burglary and possession of meth with intent to distribute, according to court records.

Eleventh Judicial Circuit Judge William Keesley sentenced Bogdansky to 22 years in prison without the possibility of parole, records show.

On Jan. 14, Aiken County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded around 5:30 p.m. to School Street in Gloverville in reference to a warrant service on Bogdansky after he was reported to be in the area, according to the report.

Upon arrival, Bogdansky was spotted; he started running and threw a black drawstring bag to the ground, police reported.

Deputies managed to apprehend Bogdansky, and the bag he had dropped was filled with stolen items, along with 5.6 grams of methamphetamine.

He was arrested and taken to the Aiken County detention center.

Investigators also spoke with a 24-year-old woman on School Street who said Bogdansky broke in to her home and stole multiple items, including jewelry, police reported.

Police were also called to Dunbar Street in Warrenville on Jan. 14, where a 45-year-old Warrenville woman reported someone had broken into her home by reaching through the doggy door to unlock the door, according to the report.

Investigators determined Bogdansky was responsible for that burglary as well.

The Sheriff’s Office also investigated a string of burglaries and car break-ins in Warrenville on Jan. 5 and Jan. 6, which all were linked to Bogdansky, police reported.
