ST HELENA ISLAND, SC -

Two teens were arrested Monday following an attempted burglary at a St. Helena home.

Eighteen-year old Brent Elliott Doddridge and 18-year old Logan James Phillips were arrested shortly after attempting to break into a home at 169 Sea Pines Dr.

Sheriff's deputies responded to a reported burglary in progress, called in by 63-year old homeowner. The victim told police that at approximately 1:45 p.m. she was inside her home when she noticed two unknown white males, wearing bandanas over their faces, walking through her front yard. She became concerned and called 911when they jumped over the fence into her backyard, where she lost sight of them.

While deputies were responding, the victim saw the subjects jump back over the fence and run towards a dark blue sedan parked in a wooded area beside her home. As deputies converged on the area, a dark blue Volkswagon Jetta occupied by two white males was observed driving on Coffin Point Rd near Cee Cee Rd.

A traffic stop was initiated and contact was made with Doddridge and Phillips. Both were positively identified as the suspects the victim had seen in her backyard. During the course of the ensuing investigation, Doddridge and Phillips were also identified in three additional burglaries reported over the last two weeks on Lady's Island.

At this time both men have been charged with the following:

  • Attempted Housebreaking (169 Sea Pines Dr on 11-18-13)
  • Burglary 1st degree (25 Marsh Hawk Dr on 11-13-13)
  • Burglary 2nd degree (26 Pleasant Place Dr on 11-7-13)
  • Burglary 2nd degree (14 Woods Ln on 11-6-13)

The investigation remains ongoing and additional charges may be pending. Anyone with information is asked to contact either Investigator A. Zsamar at 843-255-3408 or Crimestoppers.
