Two Taylors men are accused of breaking into more than 30 construction vehicles and stealing more than 100 batteries.

Greenville County deputies said the thefts happened at Ballenger Paving Company on West Lee Road in Taylors between Nov. 21 and Jan. 7. They said the replacement costs for the 101 stolen batteries was $10,422.

Deputies eventually identified 38-year-old Jonathan Capps and 27-year-old Wesley Berryman as the suspects and said they stolen the batteries as scrap metal.

Capps was charged with 34 counts of auto breaking, 33 counts of petit larceny, one count of grand larceny and one count of conspiracy. Deputies said the grand larceny charge was in connection with the theft of a 2012 Caterpillar skid steer valued at $45,000. Capps is currently being held in the Greenville County Detention Center on a $257,000 bond.

Berryman was charged with 34 counts of auto breaking, 33 counts of petit larceny and one count of conspiracy.
