MYRTLE BEACH — A Georgetown teen was charged in connection with a string of burglaries in Maryville, according to authorities.
Raekwon Shaheed Jarrell Grant, 18, was charged with criminal conspiracy and unlawful sale of a machine gun, according to authorities with the Georgetown Police Department. Grant is being held at the Georgetown County Detention Center pending a bond hearing.
Grant’s arrest stemmed from an investigation into burglaries that have happened earlier this year in the Maryville community, Georgetown police said in a post on Facebook. The investigative operation has been conducted by the Georgetown Police Department, the 15th Judicial Circuit Drug Enforcement Unit and agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
“The Georgetown Police Department would like to thank the residents of Maryville for their patience and cooperation during what has been an unsettling period for them,” officials said in the post. “These arrests do not resolve all the burglaries that took place and our investigation remains ongoing with more arrest expected.”
It was unclear how police connected Grant to the burglaries or if additional charges and arrests will be made.
