Burglary suspect caught in restaurant cooler

LEXINGTON, S.C. – A Columbia man surrendered to deputies inside a walk-in cooler after tripping a burglar alarm at a Lexington County restaurant.

Michael Davis, 33, of Columbia was arrested Monday morning at Zorba’s Greek Restaurant on Saint Andrews Road, according to warrants.

“Deputies responded to the alarm and found a door pried open,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “A K9 unit responded to sweep the building and the suspect gave up a short time later while hiding inside a cooler.”

Koon said deputies found cash on the suspect as well as tools used to break into the restaurant.

Davis has been charged with grand larceny, second degree burglary and possession of burglary tools. He’s been released from the Lexington County Detention Center after posting $66,000 bond.
