A man living on Irmo Drive called the Lexington County Sheriff's Department around 2:18 p.m. Monday to report he arrived home to find a strange car was left running in his carport and a nearby door was standing open.
After turning off the car and removing the key, the homeowner went inside and found a man and woman standing outside the kitchen.
The homeowner told deputies the pair ran into a bedroom and out a window, the department said.
Sgts. William Galardi and Barry Sowards spotted the suspects near a home on Annondale Court and arrested them, Metts said. They were identified by the Irmo Drive homeowner as the suspects in the break-in.
