AIKEN CO., S.C. (WRDW) -- A teenager has been arrested in connection to an Aiken County home invasion on Christmas Eve.

It started on the morning of Dec. 24, 2013 when deputies said three people with guns invaded a home on Mockingbird Lane demanding money and drugs, just outside Aiken City limits.

SWAT, SLED ACSO and APS threw a few flashbangs into the home. After a two hour standoff, they realized the house was empty.

Deputies believe Jamal Raheem Richardson is one of the three suspects in the invasion, Captain Abdullah said. The two other suspects are still on the loose.

Richardson was charged in October with second degree burglary and grand larceny for a home burglary on Whitemarsh Drive on Oct. 1, 2013, according to the Aiken Department of Public Safety.
