RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Deputies are looking for two suspects that attempted to steal a vehicle from an Arcadia Woods Road home early Monday morning but instead stole a remote door opener for the home.
According to the Richland County Sheriff's Department, at approximately 2 a.m., one suspect approached a vehicle parked in a carport attached to a home and successfully opened the door to the vehicle. The suspect signaled to a second suspect waiting on the side of the road and both suspects entered the vehicle.
The suspects then attempted to start the vehicle, believing the remote door opener to be a key fob to the vehicle. When the vehicle wouldn't start, both suspects fled the vehicle, leaving with the remote door opener.
The victim had a security camera watching the car and the carport, showing the suspects' actions.
