A man was arrested Wednesday night for allegedly stealing his aunt’s rent money, Rock Hill Police say.
On Aug. 14, the victim reported to police that she believed her nephew, Morris Byers, 48, of McConnells stole $800 from her Todd Street home. She believes Byers stole the key to her home from his mother.
The victim installed a camera in her home after several items had been stolen from her home previously. The video shows Byers ransacking her living room and the drawer where she keeps her rent money, police say.
Byers was arrested at his Brattonsville Road residence. He was charged with two counts of second degree burglary and two counts of petit or simple larceny. Byers was also wanted by York County for failing to appear for a burglary charge. He is being held at the York County Detention center on a $50,000 bond.
