Its OK for Me to Be Here

The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to Burdette Road, Gray Court at 2:14 Friday afternoon on a report that a vehicle had been seen backed up behind a building with smoke coming from the vehicle. Deputies responded and found it was actually steam from the radiator. They observed a woman allegedly coming from inside the vacant house with a bag of items apparently taken from the house. 21-year-old Heather Michelle Knight of 286 Mt. Carmel Road, Gray Court was charged with Burglary. Deputy Jamie Edwards states that Heather Knight broke into a building on Burdette Road Friday without consent and with intent to commit a crime therein. A $25,000 bond was set on the charge. Ms. Knight was also being held for Greenville County. She reportedly expressed to a deputy that it was OK for her to pick up scrap metal at the location.
