Sumter sheriff's office: Robbery suspects reportedly make sure of victim's absence before taking firearms

Posted

Three adults are facing charges after two men allegedly stole firearms and other items from a house after another suspect made sure the victim would not be home Jan. 17.

According to warrants from the Sumter County Sheriff's Office, Herbert Anderson IV, 33, and Jason C. Sims, 33, reportedly forced open the rear door to a residence on Bush Branch Road and took multiple firearms, lock boxes and other items from both the house and a storage shed.

Before entering the house, 38-year-old Shonda N. Sauls, of Pinewood Road, reportedly contacted the victim to learn when no one would be home, according to a release from the sheriff's office.

Anderson, of Montpelier Lane, and Sims, of Waterwheel Drive, are both charged with first-degree burglary.

Sauls is charged with accessory before the fact to a felony and criminal conspiracy. Bond was denied for all three suspects.

Booking photos were not available as of press time Monday.
