Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputies arrested three county men Saturday after they were caught burglarizing a home on White Street in Camden.

According to a KCSO press release, deputies charged Tyler Glenn Kennington, 19, of Jefferson Davis Highway, Camden; Richard Thomas Morgan, 21, of Mill Creek Road, Bethune; and Jonathan William Ray, 20, of State Road, Cassatt, with second-degree burglary.

A relative of the homeowner walked in on the trio and a fourth man at the White Street home shortly before 5 p.m., according to the report. The relative called the KCSO and provided a description of the men. Deputies set up a perimeter of the area and called in their bloodhound team, but apprehended Kennington, Morgan and Ray before the dogs arrived. 

A KCSO investigator and deputies gathered physical evidence at the home and sent it to the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) for analysis. Investigators are seeking the identity of the fourth suspect. 

According to the press release, Kennington has no prior arrest record. Morgan has a prior arrest for burglary, criminal conspiracy, breaking into an automobile, grand larceny, petit larceny, second-degree burglary, shoplifting and driving under suspension. Ray has previously been arrested for public disorderly conduct and breach of peace.

All three suspects were taken to the Kershaw County Detention Center.
