— Lexington County deputies arrested four men Thursday in connection with a break-in at a workshop at a home on Two Notch Road near Gilbert.

Michael Damien Blasco, 17, Adam Kevin Branham, 22, Antoine Damarco Stroman, 19, and Meechie Joseph Stroman, 18, all of Two Notch Road in Gilbert, are charged with second-degree burglary.

According to arrest warrants, about 12:12 a.m. Thursday, the four suspects broke into the workshop with the intent to steal and carry away items that were in the building, Sheriff James Metts said. But the homeowner saw the four, who then fled, and called law enforcement with descriptions of the suspects.

Copper wire, two metal pans and one metal light fixture were found in piles near the rear door of the building, Metts said.

Deputies went to the home of the four men and found them pretending to be asleep.

Blasco and Branham were released from the Lexington County Detention Center Thursday after each posted a $20,000 bond, Metts said. Antoine Stroman and Meechie Stroman, who are brothers, are being held on $20,000 bail each.
