Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Richland County deputies have arrested three suspects in connection with a recent string of burglaries in Lower Richland County.

Officers took 17-year-old Dayquan Ruff, 17-year-old Christopher Long, as well as a 15-year-old juvenile into custody.

According to investigators, the suspects targeted homes in a group of neighborhoods between Highway 378 and Leesburg Road.

Officers say the crimes took place between April 16 and April 18. During one of the crimes, officers say a female victim was at home at the time, and says she saw one of the suspects wearing a mask in her bedroom.

Investigators say they were able to tie the men to the robbery because a shoe print was left on the door when it was kicked in. Officers say they matched the print to Dayquan Ruff.
