Rock Hill teenager accused of burglary, grand larceny

Police arrested a teenager who may have broken into a Rock Hill woman’s home and stolen almost $5,000 worth of valuables.

Jamie Williams, 18, of Rock Hill was arrested Thursday morning at his home on Soft Winds Village Drive, a Rock Hill Police report states.

His mother told police he wasn’t home, but police found Williams inside his locked bedroom, the report states.

On Tuesday evening, police met with the 28-year-victim at her Gentle Breeze Lane residence about a burglary. The victim left at 7:15 p.m. for a football game and returned home two hours later to find that the bedrooms were ransacked, the report states.

Police believe the burglar entered the home through an open kitchen window with the screen rigged. A PlayStation 4 game console, two iPads, $1,400 in cash, and an engagement ring set worth $1,400 were stolen, the report states.

A K-9 unit and forensics experts helped the investigation and Williams was identified as a suspect.

He is charged with second degree burglary and grand larceny of less than $10,000. Williams was booked at the York County Detention center on a $200,000 bond.
