Greenwood police arrested a suspect Monday three days after a burglary was reported at the Woodland Court Apartment complex.
Patrick Summer, 19, of 717 Old Pucketts Ferry Road, Greenwood, was charged with burglary in connection with the incident. Records indicated a 15-year-old male was also taken into custody Monday and faces a juvenile complaint in reference to the April 4 break-in.
The victim returned home from work early Thursday morning and told officers someone broke into his apartment along West Cambridge Avenue and stolen several items. The items included a Sony Playstation, a video game and $30 in cash. According to a city police report:
A neighbor told officers he saw two suspicious males behind the victims house between 4-5 p.m. the day of the break-in. The neighbor said the men saw him and walked west from the apartments, got into a car parked along the road and left. The neighbor described the men, and the victim told officers it might have been the suspect and the juvenile.
