Richland County Sheriffs officers are seeking two people spotted fleeing an attempted burglary scene earlier this week.
A caller alerted the department to a burglary in progress just after midnight Tuesday on the 10000 block of Monticello Road. Responding deputies saw two unidentified people fleeing the area, leaving behind some copper they apparently were after.
The copper three rolls of electric wire valued at $5,000 came from a storage shed that had been forced open. A video surveillance camera caught the whole thing. The suspects faces were partially concealed.
Anyone with information about the break-in or the identity and location of the suspects can leave a tip for the department at Crime Stoppers, (888) CRIME-SC (274-6372).
