An Easley teenager has been charged with burglary in the theft of an AK-style gun from a Powdersville pawn shop, according to a warrant and report from the Anderson County Sheriff’s office.
Michael Jeffrey Harrison, 19, is charged with second degree burglary in connection with the incident on January 5 in which  he entered the building without consent and stole the AK47 style weapon. An AK47 style weapon is a military style semi-automatic rifle.  The weapon was valued at $640.
The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that a juvenile was also taken into custody. The juvenile’s name has not been released by the Sheriff’s Office. A warrant says Harrison was with “another participant” at the pawn shop.
In a statement and a warrant, the Sheriff’s Office said Harrison was identified in surveillance video from the pawn shop and the image led investigators to a Powdersville apartment where deputies found evidence connecting him to the theft.
The incident report was entered by Deputy J.E. Baker.
Earlier that same day, according to a separate incident report, Harrison also committed vandalism on a building at Powdersville High School, doing damage of less than two thousand dollars. The report was entered by Deputy I.N. Moore.
