Three Laurens County robbers ended up in jail after stealing from the wrong person. The incident occurred last week, as a homeowner told the authorities that he caught two individuals trying to steal two chainsaws from his shed.
Laurens County Robbers Told the Homeowner that They Need Money
Last week, the Laurens County sheriff’s deputies arrested 27-year-old Tjay McQueen along with 18-year-old Marcel McQueen and 18-year-old Richard McQueen after they’ve attempted to steal some tools from a homeowner.
According to the authorities, around afternoon they’ve received a phone call from an individual who said that two robbers that tried to raid his toolshed. Upon arriving, the Pinehill Road homeowner told the sheriff’s deputies that he saw Tjay and Marcel outside the window traversing his courtyard.
Allegedly, the man took his gun and went outside to confront the robbers. Upon seeing the armed homeowner, Tjay became defensive and told him that he and his brother needed money, and that’s why they stole two chainsaws from here.
During his parlay with the Laurens County Robbers, the homeowner saw the third individual inside a car. To prevent the thieves from escaping, the man shot two of the car’s tires. When the homeowner opened fire, Marcel and Tjay bolted and sought refuge inside the vehicle.
The authorities managed to track down the car after a traffic monitor agent saw the flat-tired vehicle speeding across the road.
Unfortunately for them, they were nabbed by the authorities later that day after trying to rob another armed homeowner.
According to the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office, the deputies received a phone call later that day who informed them about two individuals who were trying to steal some items from his house.
All three were charged with robbery and have been booked in county jail.
