LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Two witnesses helped Lexington County Sheriff's Deputies arrest a man wanted for burglarizing a home Tuesday.

Deputies arrested 27-year-old Michael Anthony Sharpe of Gaston on a charge of first-degree burglary, which carries a life sentence if convicted.

Sheriff James Metts said two people saw Sharpe force open a side door of the home on Jacob Circle near Gaston Tuesday afternoon.  Metts said one of the witnesses confronted Sharpe, who ran away.

Metts said the witnesses provided a detailed description of Sharpe, and deputies found someone matching his description running on Sharpes Hill Road near Hass Lucas Road. After getting a look at him, the witnesses told investigators he was the one who they saw break into the home.

If you have any information about other cases which Sharpe may be involved in, contact Crimestoppers at 1-888-Crime-SC.
