A 17-year-old male and five juveniles have been arrested for multiple burglaries in Orangeburg County.

According to the Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell, 17-year-old Tyreeqk Shuler and five juveniles were taken into custody this past weekend in connection to three burglaries on Trouble Lane and Bair Road.

"The five juveniles were detained after being taken into custody Friday," Ravenell said. "The five juveniles were observed feeling a home with two of the homeowner's weapons. Law enforcement quickly cornered the suspects in the woods near the residence and recovered the homeowner's weapons."

According to the report, two of the juvenile subjects are 14 years old and three of the subjects are 15 years old.

The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office noted Shuler was arrested on Saturday along with his juvenile brother after their mother called reporting the two were fighting in their home with handguns.
