AIKEN COUNTY, S.C. (WRDW) -- Investigators say they've arrested one of the suspects who allegedly broke into vehicles in the Sage Creek Subdivision.

He was booked on one warrant for breaking into a motor vehicle, two warrants for financial transaction card theft, three warrants for financial transaction card fraud and two bench warrants, the Aiken County Sheriff's Office said.
