Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) investigators arrested two male suspects, one a juvenile, after they allegedly entered a home in East Camden while the occupants slept and stole an iPhone, car keys and a small quantity of cash. These items had been on the night stand next to where the occupants were sleeping. They subsequently stole a vehicle after leaving the home.

According to a KCSO press release, investigators took Robert J. Davis, 33, from New Hampshire and most recently of East Camden, and a 16-year-old juvenile from Camden into custody following a complaint from the residents of a home on Bailey Street in East Camden. According to the residents, they were awakened in the early morning hours of May 20 by a black male standing over their bed holding what they thought was a firearm. The suspect told the residents to get down and stay quiet. In the meantime, the suspect grabbed items from the nightstand and fled the residence.

Both suspects subsequently stole a 1997 Honda Accord using the set of keys they had gotten from the residence. Investigators identified the suspects after following footprints from the victim’s home to another home on Bailey Street. Investigators then interviewed some residents in the neighborhood who knew Davis and the juvenile. The stolen vehicle was recovered in Cassatt after a citizen discovered it wrecked on the side of the road and called Kershaw County 911.

Later on May 20, investigators arrested Davis at his home on Bailey Street. The juvenile was arrested after his S.C. Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) probation officer brought him to the Camden DJJ office. Both suspects were interviewed and provided investigators with their accounts of their involvement in this incident.

Davis was taken to the Kershaw County Detention Center and remains in jail on a $40,000 bond. The juvenile is currently being detained by DJJ in Columbia. Both are charged with first-degree burglary, grand larceny and breaking into a motor vehicle.

Davis has previous arrests for dealing in or possession of prescription drugs, willful concealment, theft by taking, violation of protective order, simple assault, breach of bail condition and forgery of motor vehicle document, all taking place in New Hampshire.

The juvenile has been involved in several prior incidents with the KCSO.
