WALHALLA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies have made arrests in connection with a burglary and larceny incident in Walhalla in June.

The news came in a press release from the Oconee County Sheriff's Office on Thursday.

On Thursday, June 22, deputies responded to an address on Campbell Town Road in Walhalla for reports of a break-in at a residence in the area. Deputies said the homeowner tried to hold some suspects inside the house, but the suspects were able to get away before deputies arrived.

After examining the scene, deputies said that the suspects had been able to get into the residence through a window, and had cooked food inside the home as well. 

Deputies obtained arrest warrants for 24-year-old Caitlynn Denise Diminovich of Walhalla on June 22, and later obtained warrants for 32-year-old Dustin Mack Jones of Seneca, in connection with the incident.

Deputies said Diminovich was arrested June 26 and charged with first degree burglary and petit larceny. She was also charged with one count of first degree burglary and one count of petit larceny for a break-in reported on June 21 at the same Campbell Town Road residence, and was charged with one count of second degree burglary and one count of petit larceny for another break-in at a different address on Campbell Town Road on April 18.

The investigation continued, and deputies said 32-year-old Dustin Mack Jones of Seneca was arrested June 27 on charges of first degree burglary and petit larceny in connection with the June 22 incident at the Campbell Town Road home.

Jones remained in custody at the Oconee County Detention Center on a combined $32,125 surety bond as of 1 p.m. Thursday. Diminovich remained in custody at the Oconee County Detention Center where she is being held on a $86,000 surety bond.
