OCONEE CO., SC (WSPA) – Deputies have arrested a man they say broke into an Oconee County home twice in a two-month period.
According to the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office, 59-year-old Wayne Emory Drost is charged with two counts of first degree Burglary and two counts of Petit Larceny.
Warrants said that Drost broke in to a house on Leila Road sometime between May 1 and May 24 and stole several tools.
Deputies were called to the same home on June 21 for a burglary in progress.
Investigators said they found Drost at the home who told them that he had keys to the home and that he had permission to be there.
