Kenneth Robert Clark, Jr.
(Walhalla, SC)--------------------------------------An Anderson County man remains in jail today at the Oconee County Detention Center, on a combined $15,000 surety bond, after his arrest last Friday in relation to a stolen vehicle investigation.
45 year old Robert Shane Todd, of Lollis Road in Belton, was booked into jail in Oconee County on December 9th around 5:43pm after being transported from the Anderson County Detention Center.
Todd is the third Anderson County men arrested on charges related to the theft of two pick-up trucks from the Pioneer Rural Water District Office last month.
Two other Anderson County men, 54 year old Kenneth Robert Clark, Jr., of Travis Road in Anderson, and 30 year old Steven Louis Garrison, of Rowland Road in Anderson, were arrested last week for their involvement in the crime.
Clark, Jr. was arrested on one count each of Accessory before the Fact of a Felony and Accessory after the Fact of a Felony. Garrison, of Rowland Road in Anderson, was arrested on one count each of Grand Larceny and Malicious Injury to Property.
A Uniform Patrol deputy was dispatched to the office location on Highway 24 near Oakway the morning of November 23rd due to reports of two white males that entered the property and stole two work trucks earlier that morning. The drivers of the two work trucks then rammed the front gates of the business and headed on Highway 24 towards Anderson.
The two work trucks were both white Toyota Tacoma’s, a 2017 model and a 2019 model. Both trucks were eventually recovered in Anderson County, one on November 24th and the other truck on November 25th.
The investigation was turned over to the Criminal Investigations Bureau. As the investigation continue, and evidence was gathered in the case, it was determined that Garrison stole one pickup truck while Todd stole the other pickup truck. Both subjects rammed the gates of Pioneer Water as they left the property.
Clark, Jr. was charged as he provided transportation to Garrison and Todd, knowing that a crime was going to be committed. After the crime was committed, Clark, Jr. benefitted personally from the crime.
The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation.
