Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott is asking for the community's help in locating a man wanted for burglarizing a home that had been damaged by fire.
Sheriff Lott said Allan Morgan broke into the home at 615 Folkstone Road about 11:30 p.m. Jan. 17 and stole appliances. Deputies said when they found Morgan inside the home he told them the residents had given him permission to take any salvageable items.
Deputies let Morgan go because they could not find the residents to verify his story.
Several days later, investigators found the residents who told them Morgan did not have permission to take anything from the house Sheriff Lott said.
Never miss a local story.
Anyone with information about Morgan's whereabouts should call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIMESC or text 'TIPSC' to CRIMES (274637).
