      Burglary suspect arrested in Georgetown County

      A man that was wanted by Georgetown County sheriff's deputies has been found and arrested.

      Officials were looking for Eric Wade Sanders, 22, of Pawleys Island on Monday.

      Sanders had two outstanding warrants for Burglary in the second degree in connection to several recent burglaries in Pawleys Island.

      Georgetown County sheriff's deputies found Sanders on Chapel Creek Road in Pawleys Island Monday night around 11.

      They saw him through a window of a home. The homeowner let deputies in and led them upstairs where Sanders was hiding in a bathroom with the door locked, according to a press release. Deputies arrested him.

      While Sanders was being taken into custody, deputies found drug paraphernalia, 12 bindles containing a brown powdery substance and seven white pills, according to the release.

      Sanders was booked into the Georgetown County Detention Center Tuesday morning around 12:30.

      He is being held without bond and is charged with two counts of Burglary in the second degree.

      More charges are pending.
