DENMARK, SC (WRDW) -- A burglary suspect was still on the run Monday night near Denmark Technical College.

Bamberg County Sheriff Sheriff Ed Darnell says a home-owner walked in on the crime, and the intruder "high-tailed it." No one was hurt, but the incident sparked a manhunt.

A helicopter has been searching from the air, and crews are on the ground hoping to find him. Neighbors tell News 12 a SLED helicopter was still out searching even after the sun went down.

We are working to learn more information about the search and the suspect and will pass along any information as we get it.
