A call from a concerned citizen resulted in the arrest of 47-year-old Gerald Anthony Greene Tuesday afternoon.
Georgetown County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Carrie Cuthbertson says the caller to 911 reported a suspicious vehicle parked next to a shed on Ruffin Court.
Deputies were told there was a burglary in progress.
“The victim confronted the suspect who fled the scene on
foot,” Cuthbertson said.
Greene – of McDonald Road - was found a short time later hiding in some bushes at a home on Sollie Circle. He was arrested without incident, Cuthbertson said.
She said he is charged with third degree burglary and possession of stolen property.
