Two Kershaw men remain behind bars a week after they were arrested in connection with a burglary spree in the southern end of the county.


Therine Junior Miller, 23, 141 Conally St., and Andre William Stewart, 21, 623 E. Richland St., were each charged April 25 with multiple counts of burglary related to a string of burglaries the week before, according to a Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office press release.

Miller and Stewart are charged with breaking into the Kershaw News-Era, at 103 S. Hart St., on April 15, and into Cromer’s, at 322 N. Hampton St., and K-Town subs, at 104 E. Church St., each on April 21, the release said.

Stewart has also been charged with breaking into Joann’s Styling Salon, at 135 E. Marion St., on April 21, the release said.

All four businesses are within a mile of each other.

Lancaster County deputies found Stewart walking with another man in the 200 block of W. Marion St. on April 25, a sheriff’s office incident report said. After checking his name for warrants, deputies learned he was wanted in Kershaw County and arrested him. He was then held for Kershaw County deputies, the report said.

Miller remained jailed Monday, May 6, at the Lancaster County Detention Center on a $110,000 bond.  Stewart is jailed at the Kershaw County Detention Center in Camden on a breach of trust charge awaiting transfer back to Lancaster County, according to Kershaw detention center records.

On Tuesday, May 7, Stewart remained jailed in Kershaw on a $2,145 bond, per detention center records.

According to the S.C. Judicial Department website, Stewart was found guilty of breach of trust, $2,000 or less, during a March 12 bench trial in the 5th Judicial Circuit. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail and was scheduled to be released April 11, per judicial records.

“We are very pleased to get these two in jail,” said Lancaster County Sheriff Barry Faile. “They have been causing problems in Kershaw and we are glad to have them in jail where they need to be.”
