Lexington police say female suspect arrested on warrants from Public Storage and Harvest Church case
Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) – Lexington Police Chief Terrance Green said Friday that his investigators have now arrested Cynthia T. Sallee, age 39 of Leesville, who was wanted for her involvement in several recent burglaries, grand larcenies, and vandalism cases. Now, they need the public’s help in locating Andrew Thomas Goff, age 34 of Leesville who has several warrants for his arrest in the same case. Michael Nerini, age 42 of Lexington, the third member of this group, had already been arrested by officers earlier in the week.
According to Chief Green, the three were wanted for stealing from the Public Storage and The Harvest Church, both located on Sunset Blvd. in Lexington. These properties had been burglarized, vandalized, and multiple items had been stolen from each.
At Public Storage, officers found that the fence to the business had been cut and locks had been removed from several storage units. The suspects stole fine china, carved animal figures, and crystal ware. Two trailers were also taken. Just the items stolen from Public Storage were valued at over $21,000.
At The Harvest church, officers found an outdoor shed had been broken into and lawn equipment, a golf cart, and other items had been taken. These items, valued at over $7,000, took the trio’s loot total to almost $30,000 once it was all added together.
Officers had good video surveillance footage from the scene of these crimes, and they turned to the public for help identifying suspects based on pictures taken from those. The public quickly helped with tips that helped identify the three suspects. Investigators interviewed them, and eventually obtained warrants for their arrest on multiple charges of Grand Larceny, Criminal Conspiracy, Burglary 3rd Degree, Vandalism, and Driving Under Suspension 1st Offense.
Now that Sallee and Nerini have been taken into custody, police are anxious to capture Goff. As much as the public has helped with this case, officers know that they can help find Goff and reunite him with his friends in the detention center.
