A Laurens County man was formally charged this week in reference to a break-in earlier this year in north Greenwood.
Greenwood County deputies took Devante Pulley, 20, of Clinton, into custody Monday morning and charged him with first-degree burglary, grand larceny and malicious damage to real property in connection with the Jan. 18 incident.
Records indicate Pulley was arrested by Laurens County deputies the day of the alleged burglary in Greenwood County. He was convicted in September for multiple counts of burglary and grand larceny in Laurens County, and is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence, according to State Law Enforcement Division records.
Greenwood County investigators brought him here to serve warrants on him Monday. According to officials, he conspired in the break-in and participated in it as well. Investigators noted this was the lone Greenwood County burglary to which they link him.
According to a Greenwood County incident report:
Officers responded to the victim's home in the 1300 block of Bucklevel Road the morning of Jan. 18. The victim said nearly $3,000 worth of items were stolen from the residence, including an iPad, a laptop, a Nintendo DS gaming system, a 32-inch flat screen television, a Kindle Fire and a safe containing a 9mm pistol.
Deputies arrested two other suspects in connection with the incident and recovered several of the stolen items during a raid on Windtree Court the day of the alleged break-in.
