A Bluffton teen who allegedly stole guns and ammunition from her father’s home and then taunted law enforcement while on the run has been released from the Beaufort County Detention Center on bail.

Rylee Hall, 17, allegedly broke into her father’s University Park home July 26 with the help of 19-year-olds Jahkheme Scott and Kiyan Johnson, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office news release.

The three are accused of taking several semi-automatic rifles, handguns and ammunition that has yet to be found by investigators, Capt. Bob Bromage said Wednesday.

All three turned themselves in and were charged with second-degree burglary and grand larceny.

Hall, according to the Beaufort County Detention Center’s website, was released Tuesday. The amount of bail she posted was not available on the Beaufort County Court website because she is a minor.

Johnson, of Ridgeland, was released Saturday after he posted a $15,000 bail, according to the court’s records.

Scott remained at the detention center Wednesday morning.

Hall used a four-letter expletive followed by the number 12, a phrase meant to insult police, in a post on her Facebook page a day after the burglary.

She also wrote, “they gotta find me first straight up.”
