A Windsor woman was detained on burglary and grand larceny charges in connection with a December burglary in Kalmia Hills, according to the Aiken Department of Public Safety.
Kelly Lynn Pyle, 32, was charged with one count each of first-degree burglary, third-degree burglary, grand larceny and possession of stolen goods, and four counts of larceny, according to reports. She was placed in the Aiken County detention center, where she remained on Wednesday afternoon.
The charges stem from a burglary at a home on Dibble Road in the early hours of Dec. 15, 2013, according to Lt. Jake Mahoney, a spokesman for Aiken Public Safety. Investigators determined that Pyle entered a closed garage and took more than $10,000 in tools, chain saws, golf clubs and saddles. Also taken was the victimís 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe, which was later recovered, according to reports.
Mahoney said Pyle is not believed to have acted alone, and she is a suspect in several additional burglaries in the Kalmia Hills area. Investigators are awaiting laboratory results that may identify additional suspects.
Anyone with information about the unsolved Kalmia Hills burglaries is asked to call Aiken Public Safety at 803-642-7620, or CrimeStoppers of the Midlands at 888-CRIME-SC. Callers will remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
