BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – Authorities in Berkeley County are searching for a man who they say is considered armed and dangerous.

According to the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office, Dashawn Lamont Seabrook, 19, is wanted for theft of a motor vehicle and tampering with a motor vehicle.

Deputies say Seabrook and three other individuals entered the Nexton community the morning of April 4th with the intent to break into vehicles in the area.

“Seabrook and his crew are responsible for multiple vehicle break-ins along with a motor vehicle theft during their crime spree,” deputies said.

Personal property, including firearms, were removed from several vehicles. Deputies say neither Seabrook nor any of the subjects involved appear to live in the Nexton area and “specifically targeted the community to commit the crimes,” according to the sheriff’s office.
