Three masked men were chased off private property on Mroz Road in Burton Friday afternoon after they were found coming onto the back of the property, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office report.
The three trespassers were chased off by three individuals who were working in the area at the time, according to the report. They believed the masked individuals were there for a burglary. One of the property owner’s employee’s stopped the chase to let deputies know what was going on while the other two kept chasing the masked men.
One of the suspects was caught and he was issued a trespass notice, according to the report. A bicycle, some shoe prints and a “do-rag” were dropped or tossed aside by the intruders as they ran. The bike was returned to the suspect and the rest were documented or taken in as evidence.
