NEW ELLENTON S.C. (WRDW) -- The search continues for one of four attempted armed burglary suspects.

Several law enforcement agencies, including the Barnwell City Police Department, the Barnwell County Sheriff's Office, the Aiken County Sheriff's Office and the dog tracking team were searching along Williston Road Tuesday night.

Barnwell City Police Capt. Wayne Martin says this all started from a home invasion that turned into an attempted armed robbery in Barnwell City.

He says four suspects left the home in an SUV. Barnwell County deputies chased the SUV into Aiken County.

New Ellenton deputies put out stop sticks around 9:45 p.m. to stop the car.

Out of the four men, one stayed in the car and three ran into the woods. Three were caught.

The remaining suspect is described as a black male, 5'3" with long dreadlocks.
