GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Anderson County deputies said a man who was fatally shot by Greenville County deputies earlier this week was involved with numerous car break-ins the day before he died.
Lt. Sheila Cole said 22-year-old Jordan Browder, along with Dylan Lamar Tiller, 21, and Michael Harden 20, are accused of breaking into cars along Tall Oaks Circle, Madison Bridge Road, Pleasant Woods Road and Bentwood Drive in Anderson.
According to Cole, the thefts happened between late Saturday, May 31 and early Sunday, June 1.
She said purses, wallets, flashlights, binoculars, tools, GPS devices, and handguns were taken from the cars. Credit and debit cards that were taken from the vehicles were used by the trio in several counties, according to Cole.
Early on June 2, Browder was fatally shot during an altercation with a Greenville County deputy near a car at the Citgo on Piedmont Highway just south of Interstate 85, according to the sheriff's office.
Tiller was the driver of the car and was arrested on unrelated charges that morning, deputies said.
Cole said Greenville County deputies recovered numerous items as evidence from the vehicle and Anderson County investigators recovered more items from a home belonging to one of the suspect's relatives.
Tiller is currently being held at the Greenville County Detention Center on the charges of unlawful carrying of a pistol, sale or delivery of pistol to and possession by unlawful person, manufacturing, distribution, etc. of methamphetamine, and financial transaction card theft.
Haren is facing 11 charges of larceny/breaking into a motor vehicle and is being held at the Anderson County Detention Center.
Cole said Browder will not be charged after his death.
She said the arrests are expected to close at least three other cases.
