A Fort Mill man was arrested this weekend in connection with recent burglaries at two Rock Hill car dealerships.
The C&K Automotive on North Anderson Road was reportedly burglarized in October, when someone took three automotive scanners valued at $9,025, a Rock Hill Police report states.
On Nov. 3, employees at the Royal Automotive on Saluda Street reported a burglary in which the suspect allegedly took a Sony PlayStation 3, a 25’’ Insignia TV, and $85 from the cash register.
Through an investigation, detectives identified Forrest Halcet Byrd III, 46, as the suspect in both burglaries, according to the report.
Police observed Byrd driving a yellow 2000 Mustang on White Street and Main Street on Nov. 12 and pursued him, when he reportedly fled from police. Byrd accelerated his speed and began driving erratically through traffic, evading police.
On Sunday afternoon, Byrd was found on East White Street and arrested. He was charged with two counts of burglary third degree, and failure to stop for police, the report states. He is held at the Rock Hill Jail on a $25,000 bond.
