WHITMIRE, SC (WIS) - Newberry County deputies have arrested two more suspects in a Whitmire home invasion last week, and say all four of the men responsible are in custody.

Newberry County Sheriff Lee Foster said Christopher Deauntray Gist, 18, and Sylister Dantrelle Jeter, 20, both of Union, were arrested on Wednesday without incident.

Gist and Jeter will join Lamarcus Mantrell Lindsay, 18, and Kenneth Scott Worthy, 18, both of Whitmire, at the Newberry County Detention Center. Lindsay and Worthy were arrested two days after the December 15 incident.

Foster said the four men burst into a home on Highway 66 near Whitmire wearing masks and carrying guns, and robbed the victims of $60, a laptop and a lockbox that contained the deed to Ellison's home.

"It makes me scared to death to stay in my own home," said victim Becky Ellison.

Investigators said community tips and the Whitmire Police Department helped deputies identify the suspects. "The information provided to our investigators was crucial to solving this case so quickly," said Foster. "It is clear that the people of the Whitmire community will not tolerate such criminal activity in their close knit community."

Deputies said Gist was not wearing a mask during the incident, and the victims were able to give enough information for a police sketch. Investigators say that the similarity of the composite to Gist's appearance is uncanny.
