ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Anderson County Sheriff's Office is searching for a suspect and said two others are in custody after a burglary at a business on Thursday.

The incident occurred at Caribbean Storage on Highway 24 just before noon. Deputies said the property owner spotted three suspects trying to get away with items from one of the storage unites in a Ford F-150.

Items began falling from the bed of the truck and he observed an open unit, deputies said.

The owner tried to hold the suspects at gunpoint at the property gate, but they fled, nearly hitting him, deputies said. Then the owner and another individual followed the suspects to Marina Road.

Deputies said the owner again tried to hold the suspects at gunpoint, but they scattered in different directions.

The Sheriff's Office responded to the scene where deputies said 27-year-old Marina Brittany Wood was immediately detained while running toward the lake. A K-9 unit on scene apprehended 23-year-old Katherine Duffell, who was bitten in the process, deputies said.

She was transported to the hospital but later released to the Anderson County Detention Center.

Deputies said the search is ongoing for a third, male suspect. They said they believe they have his identity and do not think he is a threat to the community.
