An early morning burglary that occurred at the South Carolina Department of Transportation facility in Rock Hill was disturbed by a DOT employee.  Police say two people were in the process of loading equipment into a U-Haul truck, when the DOT worker spotted them.  This occurred around 1:00 a.m.

Police have charged a 40-year-old woman, and 42-year-old man with grand larceny, criminal conspiracy, and second-degree burglary, according to Rock Hill police booking reports.  In many states throughout the United States, a person must enter the dwelling of another in order to be charged with the crime of burglary.  However, in South Carolina, if one enters a building with the intent to commit a felony or larceny therein, that person may still be charged with burglary under South Carolina law.
