Lexington County Sheriff’s Department deputies arrested a man and woman they say broke into two storage buildings near Leesville.
On Tuesday, Nov. 6, deputies arrested 31-year-old Corenia Marie Hanna of Leesville and 33-year-old Henry Stokes “Trey” Moseley, III of West Columbia on charges that they broke into two storage buildings on Tuesday on private property on Cedar Grove Road.
Hanna was arrested on charges of third-degree burglary and unlawful neglect of a child by a legal custodian, deputies say. Moseley was arrested on charges of third-degree burglary and receiving stolen goods.
Hanna and Moseley each were being held on Wednesday, November 7 at the Lexington County Detention Center while awaiting bond hearings, according to sheriff’s deputies.
Arrest warrants allege that on Tuesday Hanna and Moseley broke into the two storage buildings on private property on Cedar Grove Road with the intent to steal items that were stored in the buildings.
Deputies say they later found a metal detector, portable electric shop fan and a wood statuette that was in the storage building, inside a truck that Moseley possessed and operated.
An arrest warrant further alleges around 4 p.m. on Tuesday a man who rented storage space at the Cedar Grove Road property found Hanna on the property without any legal reason to be present on the property.
Deputies say the man who was armed with a firearm, confronted Hanna, who had a baby boy under the age of 1 in her custody when she and Moseley broke into the two storage buildings. The baby boy later was placed in his grandmother’s custody.
Detectives served Moseley with an arrest warrant that they previously had obtained on charges that at about 1:30 a.m. on July 16 he received a 2012 Xtratuff utility trailer that contained $4,000 worth of motorcycle equipment, deputies say.
The trailer and motorcycle equipment were reported stolen from Covenant Community Church at 1302 Old Orangeburg Road near Lexington, the report stated. Deputies say the trailer was stolen between July 13 and July 15.
Deputies with the Sheriff’s Department K-9 Unit and their K-9 police dog partners tracked Moseley down at a home on Ansel Caughman Road and arrested him without incident, the report stated.
