Two men have been caught as part of an ongoing investigation in Lamar County.
Ramsey Pittman and Brandy Frazier are two of the five people being sought, and both had active warrants for credit card fraud and auto burglary.
Pittman and Frazier were caught and arrested in Marion County after a short case with the help of the Marion County Police Department.
Both were charged with credit card fraud and auto burglary. Additional charges are pending.
“I want to thank the public, it was tips from the public and people in our community that made this possible and helped the case along,” Lamar County Sheriff Danny Rigel said.
The other three names are not being released at this time, pending the ongoing investigation.
According to Lamar County Sheriff Danny Rigel, the burglary happened late Tuesday night or in the early hours of Wednesday morning in Serene Hills off King Road.
“The suspects took an automatic pistol and personal content that was in the vehicle,” Lamar County Sheriff Danny Rigel said. “Around 5:30 a.m. Wednesday, the group of people used a credit card that was stolen in the burglary at Walmart on U.S. 98.”
Rigel said a short time after, around 8:30 a.m. they went to the Marion County Walmart in Columbia.
“This was an auto burglary, and the car was left unlocked, again we just ask and remind everyone in the community to keep your vehicles locked, and if you do have valuables in the vehicles or a weapon, be sure to bring that inside,” Rigel said.
