According to DCSO officials, DCSO investigators, with the help of alert citizens, were able to identify a burglary ring operating in the Archdale area of unincorporated North Charleston. Detectives linked the seven adults and a juvenile to burglaries of more than twenty residences and arrested four suspects and a juvenile suspect in connection with the burglaries.
Subsequent investigation led law enforcement to a North Charleston area business, Crazy Bob's Electronics, where investigators found numerous items stolen in the burglaries, according to DCSO officials. The owner of the business, Robert Bertino faces multiple charges of possession of stolen goods in connection with the burglaries, according to DCSO officials.
Other cases have been identified by the North Charleston and Goose Creek Police Departments, according to DCSO officials.
The investigation continues.
