Deputies investigating burglary at Spartanburg Co. library branch


Spartanburg County deputies are investigating after the Cyril-Westside Library was broken into on August 14.

Deputies said they were called to the library on Oak Grove Road after the third shift maintenance worker encountered a burglar.

The worker told deputies he was cleaning when he heard a shattering sound from the front of the library, per incident reports. The worker then saw a man wearing a blue shirt turn a corner. Both men ran in opposite directions upon seeing one another.

The maintenance worker reported that a green Ford Explorer left the parking lot shortly after the strange man ran out of the front of the building.

Deputies said it appeared a brick was used to break a pane of glass.

The suspect has not been identified.

On August 22, deputies released photos of the suspect on Facebook.

If you can help identify the suspect, call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
