Deputies search for burglars after home break-in

The Aiken County Sheriff's office is looking for two suspects after a morning home invasion in Warrenville. An 11-year-old boy was home when it happened.

Sgt. Jason Feemster said just after 9A.M., the boy called 9-1-1 to his home on the 1300 block of Oxford Subdivision.

"We determined there was an 11-year-old home in the house sick for the day. He said two men, two black males, came in the back door."

Sgt. Feemster said the boy described both men as wearing black. One had a green hoodie or a green sweatshirt on. Both, the boy said, left the scene on foot.

Deputies also said the suspects got away with items. The Aiken County Sheriff's Department blood hound tracking team was called in and some of the items were recovered. Deputies were not able to release what items were taken or recovered.

But they said the boy is a hero.

"He was a hero, "Sgt. Jason Feemster said, "He helped us by calling as quickly as he did. We got out here and set up a perimeter and started tracking people."

Deputies said the tracking team wrapped up, but the suspects are still on the run.

Sgt. Jason Feemster said, "We just ask that if they [the public] see people on foot matching the description, please call law enforcement and let us know."

Neighbors tell Fox 54, they aren't worried and are just glad the boy is ok.

Neighbor Paul Coupal said, "It's very unsettling obviously, but I'm sure they'll be caught. The Sheriff's Department patrols this area regularly and it's a neighborhood watch community."

Warrenville Elementary School went on soft lockdown as a precaution around 10:30 A.M. School officials told Fox 54 everything was back to normal by 12:30.
