Staff Writer
Three people have been arrested in connection with a break-in reported Friday.
Amanda Kay Hughey, 22, of 635 Browns Creek Church Road was charged by the Union County Sheriff's Office with grand larceny.
Corbin Ward Easler, 23, of 141 Lancaster Road, Spartanburg, was charged with possession of stolen goods.
Heather Marie Millwood, 19, of 231 Poplar Road, Jonesville, was charged with possession of stolen goods and simple possession of marijuana.
The victim on 132 Echo Valley Road told Sgt. James Johnson that he came home from work and found his front and side doors standing open. His 42-inch plasma high definition TV, three video gaming systems and five games are missing. These are worth around $2,625.
Friday afternoon, deputies were informed that Ms. Hughey, Ms. Millwood and Easler were at a business in Buffalo trying to sell the TV. Sgt. Dee Haney and Cpl. Scott Ruby went to the location and took the three into custody. Two small bags of marijuana were found in Ms. Millwood's purse.
A report said Lt. Kenneth Riddle had already signed a warrant on Ms. Hughey after receiving information in the case.
Attempted robbery
The sheriff's office is looking for a man who attempted to rob the Li'L Cricket on 1241 South Duncan By-Pass Sunday night.
The clerk told Deputy Roxie Belue she was in the back of the store getting some drinks when a man dressed in black clothing came in. The clerk's 16-year-old daughter was in the store and the man shoved her behind the counter and ordered her to open the register.
The girl told the man she didn't work at the store and couldn't open the register. He pulled his sleeve over his hand and started pushing buttons. He was unable to open the register and left the store.
Two Union teen-agers told Deputy Roxie Belue they were the victims of a robbery late Friday while walking in the 200 block of the Sardis Road.
The boys, who are 16 and 17, said a man got out of a white, older model car and left another man inside. They said the man who approached them did not show a gun but simulated having a weapon under his shirt and told them to empty their pockets. The man took a Samsung cell phone belonging to one of the boys worth $75 and a set of headphones belonging to the other worth $20.
An investigation is continuing.
Candidate's sign
Saturday, Republican sheriff of Union County candidate Freddie Gault told Sgt. Dee Haney that someone had used pink paint to vandalize his election sign at the corner of Webber Lake Road and Peach Orchard Road.
Haney noticed the same paint was on a tree and a small bottle of the paint was in the yard at 1332 Peach Orchard Road. Haney spoke with two 14-year-old girls at the residence. Both had pink paint on their hands and admitted to putting the paint on the sign.
Gault said he did not want to prosecute the girls. Their parents were contacted. Damage to the sign was estimated at $50.
Drug arrest
John Stacy Bagley, 38, of 3515 Otis Drive, Chester, was charged Friday by the Union County Sheriff's Office with attempting to purchase cocaine, distribution of a Schedule 3 narcotic, driving under suspension, third offense; operating an uninsured vehicle and failure to surrender a suspended driver's license.
A report said Lt. John Sherfield with the sheriff's office and Investigator Mickey Parker with the Union Public Safety Department were contacted by an operative who said she knew a person who wanted to trade pills for cocaine.
Officers provided the operative with imitation cocaine and sent the operative to a location to meet Bagley. She traded the cocaine look-alike for three 7.5 mg Hydrocodone pills.
As Bagley attempted to leave the parking lot he was stopped by Sherfield and Sgt. Dean Gibson and arrested.
After Bagley's arrest officers found he was driving under suspension. Two driver's licenses were in his vehicle and he had no insurance on his 2006 Dodge truck.
