Two Gilbert men face charges in connection with the theft of a window air-conditioning unit from a vacant mobile home, the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department said.
Arromus Jamario Abney, 21, and Johnny Lavon Bowers, Jr., 19, both of Summers Place Drive, were arrested Tuesday, according to reports. Abney was arrested on charges of second-degree burglary, pointing and presenting a firearm and criminal conspiracy. Bowers was arrested on a charge of second-degree burglary.
The owner of the mobile home alerted the Sheriff’s Department around 11:16 a.m. Tuesday, saying two men, one allegedly armed with a handgun, were breaking into the home at 3810 Augusta Highway, reports said. The owner lives at a second mobile home adjacent to the vacant unit. Deputies arrested the two suspects a short time later.
Both were being held Wednesday at the Lexington County Detention Center.
