Couple with ‘homemade grenade’ arrested in pharmacy burglaries

Jun 2, 2010 1:15:00 PM - thestate.com

A North man arrested Tuesday is accused of stealing thousands of prescription pills from Lexington County pharmacies, and his girlfriend is in jail for not turning him in.

Officers from several Lexington County agencies and the U.S. Marshal’s Service arrested Brainen Jason Borchers, 31, of Savannah Highway, North, and Amanda Jennea Smith, 26, of Frink Street, Cayce, after receiving a tip they were staying at a West Columbia motel.

Officials charged Borchers with three counts of second-degree burglary, one count of grand larceny, one count of petit larceny and one count of possessing burglary tools.

Borchers’ charges stem in part from his being suspected in a break-in of a pharmacy on Platt Springs Road near Springdale where prescription medications were taken.
