Four charged in Lexington County burglary
Four Gilbert men have been arrested and charged with breaking into another person’s workshop and stealing scrap metal.
Lexington County Sheriff’s deputies said Michael Damien Blasco, 17, Adam Kevin Branham, 22, Antoine Damarco Stroman, 19, and Meechie Joseph Stroman, 18, are charged with second-degree burglary.
According to deputies, the four suspects live together, and Antoine Stroman and Meechie Stroman are brothers. The four are accused of breaking into a workshop outside a Two Notch Road home early Thursday morning and stealing the scrap metal. The homeowner reported seeing them and that they ran away, but the homeowner was able to describe all four suspects to deputies.
The four later were arrested at their home, where deputies said they found them pretending to be asleep. Bond for each of the four was set at $20,000.
