A man suspected of being an accomplice of high-volume burglary suspect Dantwan Wilson is so far eluding Richland County Sheriff’s deputies.
Wilson is the suspect in at least 40 home burglaries in Columbia, Forest Acres and Richland County. The suspected accomplice, Kayce Donquell Washington, 20, has ties to the Eau Claire/Ridgewood area and is suspected of burglary and grand larceny.
Washington came to detectives’ attention through tips about a suspicious vehicle connected to an April burglary in the City of Columbia.
A pickup truck stopped for a traffic infraction was identified as the same vehicle, and the driver was able to provide information that developed Washington as a suspect. The driver was not arrested.
The investigation into the burglaries continues and more arrests could follow, the sheriff’s department said.
