The fourth and final suspect in a rash of home burglaries and car break-ins turned himself in Aug. 19.
Chase Griffey, 16, turned himself in at the York County Sheriff’s Office, said Maj. David Nelson, a Tega Cay Police spokesman. Griffey, who Nelson said is being charged as an adult, faces two counts of first-degree burglary, two counts of conspiracy to commit first-degree burglary and one count each of larceny and grand larceny.
The charges stem from 16 burglaries in the Lake Ridge community last month. Two homes were broken into, and the rest of the cases involved vehicles.
An alleged co-defendant of Griffey, 20-year-old Cameron Head, was arrested Aug. 16 on more than 40 charges that included breaking and entering a vehicle, burglary, grand larceny and weapons charges.

Griffey was the last suspect at large in connection with the Tega Cay thefts, Nelson said. Two other suspects, Raj Kumar and Luke Griffey, were arrested earlier in July.
