Two men have turned themselves in to face charges in connection with a burglary in the Olympia neighborhood.

According to the Richland County Sheriff's Department, Mitchell Wiley, 24, and Charleston Sweat, 19, have both been charged with first-degree burglary and grand larceny.

Investigators say the pair broke into a home on Dover Street through a back door and stole $6,000 from the victims' safe, two handguns, jewelry, and a video game system. Sweat, according to investigators, was a friend of the victims and had been inside the home before. 

Officials are still investigating other burglaries in the area near the Dover Street incident. Additional charges could be filed.
