KERSHAW COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

The Kershaw County Sheriff says the department's bloodhound team got some help from observant citizens to track down a teen wanted for having a stolen vehicle in his possession.

Sunday afternoon, Sheriff Jim Matthews said a deputy was called to Norris Avenue in Camden for a report of a speeding SUV. The deputy spotted the SUV parked in a yard and knocked on the door to tell the driver to slow down. The deputy ran the registration on the SUV and learned it had been reported stolen out of Orangeburg County.

As other deputies arrived at the house, Matthews said Ty Rik Linnard Jacquez Gaffney and Shane Edward Glover, both 18 and from Orangeburg County, ran out the back door of the house. Gaffney was quickly taken into custody but Glover ran off.

It took the Sheriff's Department's bloodhound team an hour to track Glover through a wooded area and a swamp. Along the way, several citizens told deputies which way Glover ran. Eventually, Glover was taken into custody.

Glover and Gaffney are charged with receiving stolen goods and petty larceny. They face additional charges out of Orangeburg County regarding the theft of the vehicle. Both are being held at the Kershaw County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.

Glover, who is from Orangeburg, has no previous arrest record, according to Matthews.

St. Matthews native Gaffney has previous arrests for weapons, possession of a stolen vehicle and ill treatment of animals.

“The bloodhounds and some help from several citizens contributed to the apprehension of at least one of these car thieves,” said Sheriff Matthews. “We always encourage citizen help and will take it whenever we can.”
