A bloodhound tracking team helped fined a burglary suspect in Garden City Wednesday, said Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Carrie Cuthbertson.

Stephen Lundy Singleton, 38, of Murrells Inlet is charged with second-degree burglary and receiving stolen goods.

Deputies responded to an alarm call on the 900 block of South Waccamaw Drive in Garden City and saw a Singleton fleeing the home on foot when authorities arrived about 8 a.m.

A bloodhound tracking team was called when deputies lost sight of Singleton. He was found hiding in shrubbery. A moped, reported stolen out of Horry County, was found a short distance from Singleton. It was not clear if Singleton was accused of stealing the moped.

Singleton is being held at the Georgetown County Detention Center.
