The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office has arrested three additional people over the past two days in connection with the recent burglary and car theft ring in Laurens County.

On Thursday, deputies arrested Bryan Eugene Dilleshaw, 23, of 304 Academy St. in Clinton, and charged him with receiving stolen goods. After Dilleshaw’s arrest, deputies were able to recover two stolen vehicles.

On Friday, investigators and narcotics agents arrested Dartagnan Pruitt and Kayla Dawn Armstrong with the assistance of the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) Fugitive Task Force and the Woodruff Police Department. 

At the time of his arrest, Pruitt was in possession of a motorcycle that had been reported stolen from Charlotte and a Honda Accord that was reported stolen from Anderson County. 

“I am very proud of my investigators and the deputies of this office,” said Sheriff Don Reynolds. “They have worked both night and day for the past few weeks, trying to disrupt this crime ring. We will continue to arrest any and all individuals that may be associated with this group.” 

All subjects have been transported and booked at the Johnson Detention Center.

The LCSO said that the investigation is ongoing.
