Investigators have identified the two suspects who they say are still on the run following a burglary in Cherokee County in late April.

One person has been arrested following a manhunt in Cherokee County Thursday.  Two others remain on the loose, according to deputies.

Sheriff Steve Mueller tells 7 On Your Side that a homeowner found two burglars inside the home near the intersection of Grassy Pond Road and Cherokee National.  One other suspect was waiting in a car outside.

Investigators say the suspects jumped out of the window.  One was able to get into the getaway vehicle.  Another ran away.

Deputies say the homeowner fired shots as the gold SUV as it sped off.

During a search for the suspects, Sheriff Mueller says he spotted the man who ran on foot trying to hitchhike nearby.  

According to a news release, the man told the sheriff he had been at a party and was going to his girlfriend's house.  Sheriff Mueller asked the suspect to show him the home where he was earlier.  He says when the suspect showed him the home, it turned out to be one of his deputy's in-law's house.

The man was taken into custody, and is currently working with investigators to find the other two suspects.

The suspect was later identified as Samuel Ebon Ledford of Shelby, N.C.  He faces charges of grand larceny and burglary.
