BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) -
A suspect has been identified in Tuesday's vehicle theft from a Bluffton business.
Beaufort County Sheriff's Office investigators have identified a suspect in Tuesday's vehicle theft from a Bluffton business.
Eighteen-year old James Jermaine Duncan has been identified as the suspect believed to have stolen a white 2011 Ford Expedition from Peacock Cabinetry, located at 26 Buckingham Plantation Dr, and is currently wanted on one count of grand larceny.
Duncan entered Peacock Cabinetry just before 3 p.m. acting as if he was interested in potential employment. An employee of the business left Duncan at the front desk to write down his contact information as she showed a customer around the showroom.
Another employee noticed Duncan leaving moments later from the parking lot in the victim's Ford Expedition. It is believed Duncan stole the keys from the victim's purse at the front desk.
The vehicle was recovered by Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police on Wednesday evening.
"We do believe Mr.
Duncan may be in the Savannah area, we also know that he comes over here on a
regular basis to visit family at Old South so right now, we're on the lookout," said Beaufort
County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Robin McIntosh.
Duncan is also considered a person of interest in two other recent vehicle thefts that occurred from nearby Powerhouse Gym in December. Witnesses reported seeing a subject matching Duncan's description at the business just prior to the thefts.
Powerhouse Gym has
changed its policy since the thefts. They now require all customers to be
responsible for their own keys and management is adding surveillance cameras
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of James Jermaine Duncan is asked to contact Investigator Cpl. W. Conant at 843.255.3424 or Crimestoppers.
