Aiken County investigators say they have identified one of the suspects in a string of car break-ins in the Sage Creek subdivision. 

Christopher J. Griffin, 20, is accused of using a stolen credit card at the Whiskey Road Walmart and at the BP gas station at the corner of Whiskey Road and Powerhouse Road on April 24. 

Earlier that morning, several vehicles in Sage Creek were broken into, deputies said. Several items were stolen, including the credit card Griffin is accused of using.

Investigators have obtained a warrant for Griffin for breaking into a motor vehicle, two warrants for financial transaction card theft and three warrants for financial transaction card fraud. 

Deputies believe another man is also tied to the car break-ins, but they have not identified him. 

Anyone with information about the identities of the men in the photos can call the sheriff's office at 803-648-6811 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC (1-888-274-6372).
