Lexington County authorities have arrested two people, one a juvenile, in connection with the Sept. 2 burglary of a home.
Police accuse Tayon Maurice Young, 20, and an unnamed 16-year-old, both Lexington County residents, of breaking into a home on Peak View Road and taking two Nintendo Wii game consoles, two laptops, a DVD player, gold jewelry in a cheetah-patterned cloth bag, and two backpacks, Lexington County Sheriff James Metts said in a news release.
Detectives found the jewelry bag at the juvenile’s home, Metts said.
Young, who according to the Sheriff’s Department has prior convictions for burglary, will be charged with first degree burglary. Warrants for his arrest listed the charges as first degree burglary, grand larceny and criminal conspiracy.

Detectives will recommend that the Lexington County solicitor prosecute the 16-year-old as a juvenile in family court on charges of second degree burglary, grand larceny and criminal conspiracy, Metts said.
Young was being held Tuesday at the Lexington County Detention Center and the juvenile at a pre-trial facility operated by the state Department of Juvenile Justice.
