Two woman, one man arrested on burglary charges


Two Columbia women and a Columbia man have been arrested by the Lexington County Sheriff's Department after breaking into a home late Thursday night.

Lenore Jennings, 43, Terrell Miller, 25, and Martha Pringle, 20, were all taken into custody on Friday on charges that they broke into a home on Bush River Road with a stolen 9-mm handgun.

Major John Allard says the break-in occurred after a dispute earlier on Thursday with a teenage girl that lives in the home and another teenage girl regarding their involvement with a teenage boy.

Authorities say that the group was found one block away from the Bush River Road home at a convenience store.

According to Lexington County Sheriff A. Lewis McCarty, Jennings was charged with first-degree burglary, unlawfully possessing a firearm that had been reported stolen, unlawful possession of a firearm by a person who was convicted of a violent crime that is a felony, and unlawfully carrying a firearm.

Allard stated that Miller and Pringle were each charged with first-degree burglary.

Deputies also arrested two 15-year-old girls and a 15-year-old boy in connection to the Bush River Road residential break-in.
