Two Bluffton teens have been charged with breaking into a vehicle in Lawton Station early Thursday morning.
Tevin Rivers and Zackery Houge face felony charges in the break-in. Both are being held for prosecution according to the Beaufort County jail log.
Bluffton Police were called to Lawton Station at about 2 a.m. Thursday, according to a news release. Later that morning, police found Rivers, 18, outside his home in the Mill Creek subdivision with items that had been taken from the vehicle.
Further investigation led police to Houge, 17. The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office went to Houge's home with a search warrant for the items still missing from the vehicle. Houge was arrested Thursday afternoon.
Bluffton police are continuing to investigate the incident to determine if any other cars have been broken into. Residents should lock their vehicles and store valuables out of sight. Anyone with information can call Detective Henry Criss, 843-706-4516.
