Manhunt in Progress

BEAUFORT, SC (March 10/12:45 PM) – A manhunt is currently in progress in the area of Shanklin Rd and Stanley Farm Rd in reference to suspicious activity, possibly related to recent home burglaries.

Just before 12:00 PM, two black males were observed walking down the railroad tracks carrying large flat screen televisions in the area of Laurel Bay and Westgate Cir. The suspects, whom were spotted by a deputy patrolling the area, fled upon being ordered to stop. The televisions, which were recovered near the last location the suspects were seen, have since been reported stolen from a Westgate Cir home.

A perimeter has been established in the immediate area and the Sheriff’s Office K-9 Tracking Team is actively involved in a ground search for the suspects.

The two suspects were described only as tall, slender black males. No further description is available at this time.

Residents in affected areas (Shanklin Rd, Laurel Bay Rd, Stanley Farm Rd, and neighboring side streets) are encouraged to stay inside their homes and immediately contact 911 for sightings of any suspicious person(s) in the area.
