Aiken County man, woman charged in Warrenville burglary involving juveniles
An Aiken County man and woman were charged Wednesday in connection to a burglary on Ralph Green Drive in Warrenville, which involved multiple juveniles.
Charles Eugene Weathersbee Jr., 35, of Ruby Street in Gloverville, is charged with first-degree burglary and four counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to jail records.
Cindy Kay Rearden, 35, of Ralph Green Drive in Warrenville, is charged with first-degree burglary and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, records show.
Aiken County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the 100 block Ralph Green Drive around 4 p.m. Sunday in reference to a break-in, according to the report.
Deputies met the 46-year-old victim who said she arrived to her residence and heard several people running inside the house, the report states.
She opened the front door and observed a juvenile running down the back porch steps with his brother who is also a juvenile, according to the report.
The victim said she recognized the juveniles because they were neighbors. Police reported the juveniles returned to their residence and were staring at the victim through their windows.
Investigators went to the juveniles’ home and detained them for questioning.
They implicated two other juveniles, claiming they had also been in the house. Deputies detained those two juveniles for questioning, as well.
Police determined the two suspects had broken into the residence while the owner was gone and encouraged the other kids to break into the home with them, according the arrest warrants.
The suspects and juveniles took multiple items from inside the home, many of which were found inside the juveniles’ homes, police reported.
The two suspects also encouraged the juveniles to “consume marijuana by providing marijuana in exchange for some items stolen from the burglary,” the warrant states.
Following an investigation, it was determined Weathersbee and Rearden were the suspects involved in the burglary. They were both arrested early Wednesday morning and taken to the Aiken County detention center.
