INMAN, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Spartanburg County deputies apprehended two suspects after a person reported that a thief made off with their neighbor's trailer. 

Deputies responded Wednesday to a larceny of an enclosed trailer in progress near the 1200 block of Rainbow Lake Road. 

The victim's neighbor called 911 to report the theft, deputies said in a news release.

The neighbor followed the suspect while updating the 911 dispatcher of their location. When the suspect saw a deputy turn on Highway 9, he turned onto Foster Road and later abandoned the truck and stolen trailer on Wilkins Road, just off Foster Road, deputies say.

A perimeter was set up and deputies located two suspects who have been taken into custody.

Deputies identified the suspects as Justin Pressley, 24, of Foster Mill Road, and Charles Blake Vinson, 25, of Myra Street in Roebuck.

Pressley was charged with failure to stop for blue light and receiving stolen goods.

Vinson was charged with receiving stolen goods.

Both suspects are being held in the Spartanburg County Detention Center.
