Two men face charges in connection with a business break-in.

Christopher Lee Irick, 18, and Kristopher Shultz, 19, are charged with burglary and larceny, Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said in a news release Friday.

Deputies were responding to a burglary in progress when one deputy saw a vehicle matching a description given to dispatch of the suspect vehicle. Deputies initiated a traffic stop, at Rosewood Drive and Bluff Road, at which time Irick and Shultz were taken into custody, Lott said.

The suspects are accused of cutting locks on gates and kicking in a front windown around 2:15 a.m. Friday at Carolina Rims and Wheels, 1550 Old Dairy Drive, and taking an HP Mini and HP Compaq Mini, among other items, Lott said.

The two were taken to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
