Perry Lee Mirza

An east Camden man who got out of jail Wednesday on one set of charges ended up back at the Kershaw County Detention Center hours later on another set of charges.

Tuesday, the Camden Police Department (CPD) arrested Perry Lee Mirza, 18, following an alleged assault at a West DeKalb Street department store. The CPD charged him with malicious injury to personal property, third degree assault and criminal domestic violence. Mirza left the detention center sometime on Wednesday. One set of online jail records list no bond amount; another set lists “sentenced served” as the reason he was released.

Mirza ended up back at the county jail some hours later, this time arrested by the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) on burglary charges.

A CPD report shows Mirza allegedly assaulted his ex-girlfriend after he tried to visit with her and their son in the West DeKalb Street store. At one point, Mirza allegedly tried to take the baby from the young woman’s shopping cart. He allegedly punched her when she moved to stop him from doing so. Mirza also allegedly broke the woman’s glasses.

According to a KCSO press release, deputies arrested Mirza along with a 16-year-old male juvenile after responding to a burglary call at a Jefferson Davis Highway, east Camden new and used merchandise shop. A third suspect fled the scene and is still being sought.

Deputies responding to the scene determined the burglars entered the store by smashing out the front door glass. They found three different shoe impressions in the dirt parking lot outside the store and in an adjacent parking lot. The bloodhound team responded and led deputies to a home on McRae Road where they detained two individuals wearing shoes that matched the tracks found in the parking lots. Deputies later identified the pair as Mirza and the juvenile.

The owner of the McRae Road home gave deputies permission to search the property, leading to the recovery of most of the stolen property. Deputies then took Mirza and the juvenile into custody.

The juvenile is being petitioned to family court and is currently under the supervision of his mother.

Mirza has previous arrests for minor in possession of alcohol and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

“In 2013, the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office bloodhound tracking team located 31 suspects from 53 calls for service. They are a real asset to the sheriff’s office and do a great job,” Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews said. “It looks like they are starting off well for 2014. We have the fitter guys that keep up with the dogs. They have to run through the woods and wherever the dogs take them. The dogs have to be certified. They train constantly. It’s an expense to keep them going with dog food and veterinarian care. We have some veterinarians in the area that really help us out with that.”
