The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) arrested two Cassatt men Sept. 1 after incriminating themselves in burglaries from the previous night. The arrests may clear up a number of burglaries from throughout Kershaw County.

According to a KCSO incident report, deputies conducted a routine traffic stop and found Dashawn Rondell Robinson, 23, and Eric Michael Richardson, 28, both of Dogwood Lane, Cassatt, in a vehicle with an altered temporary tag. The report identified Robinson as the driver with the passenger, Richardson, wearing a baseball cap seen in surveillance videos from the earlier burglaries. According to the report, Richardson also matched the physical description of the suspect in the surveillance video.

During a consensual search of the vehicle, deputies found crowbars, ski masks and other clothing matching the burglary suspects’, and a bank bag marked with the name of a business in the trunk of the car. Deputies took Robinson and Richardson to KCSO headquarters for questioning, where they reportedly incriminated themselves as being involved in burglaries the previous night. Investigators also determined the vehicle identification number on the car Robinson drove was from another vehicle, according to the report.

As of Tuesday morning, Robinson was still listed at the Kershaw County Detention Center (KCDC) on charges of second degree burglary, two counts of malicious injury to animals or personal property, receiving stolen goods and removing or falsifying a vehicle identification number to conceal a vehicle’s identity. According to the KCDC’s website, total bond has been set at more than $46,000.

According to online court records, Richardson is also charged with second degree burglary and two counts of malicious injury to animals or personal property with a total bond set at more than $16,000. He is not listed at the KCDC and, according to the online records, posted bond Sept. 3.

The KCSO reported the following other incidents during the period of July 30 - Sept. 6:

Deputies arrested three Camden men and a juvenile on drug and weapons charges following a July 30 checkpoint stop by the S.C. Highway Patrol. Bloodhounds tracked one suspect and deputies discovered a loaded rifle, two pistols, a bookbag containing marijuana, additional marijuana, digital scales and $2,611 in cash.

Deputies recovered a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer following a Sept. 3 traffic stop during which the driver escaped on foot. A woman claimed it had been stolen after 4 p.m. that day, but deputies had been searching for it since 10 a.m.
