Two arrested after burglary, shooting

EASLEY — Two people have been arrested and three more remain at large after a Dec. 17 shooting and burglary at a home on Angie Lane in Easley.

According to warrants from the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office, Danny William Adams Jr., 23, of 121 Waccamaw Lane in Central, Charles Antoine Burgess, 31, of 3761 Moorefield Memorial Highway in Pickens, and Robert Matthew Fulmer, 23, of 264 Watts Road in Liberty all face charges of attempted murder and burglary charges. Adams and Fulmer also face charges of petit larceny and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Adams and Burgess have been arrested and are currently being held at the Pickens County Detention Center without bond.

Officers with the PCSO also charged two females with accessory after the fact.

Investigators say a home on Angie Lane in Easley was broken into at about 10:45 p.m. Dec. 17, and shots were fired. When officers arrived at the scene, they found the homeowner lying in the yard of the residence with multiple people surrounding him. He had been shot three times, but none of the wounds were life-threatening according to police.

After the victim was taken to the hospital, deputies noticed the rear window of the residence was broken. People at the scene told officers of glass in the roadway that may have been a change jar and could have come from the home.

Deputies reported that upon entering the home they smelled what they thought was marijuana. Once in the home, they entered a bedroom, where the they saw a closet door open and remnants of a green leafy substance lying on a shelf. They also found a large scale in the closet.

The search of the far bedroom resulted in finding a small lock box lying on the floor with remnants of a green leafy substance and a small bag on the nightstand with a crystal-like substance. Narcotics officers were then called to the scene.

Arrest warrants for the two women say that police believe that on the night of the shooting that Heather Leeann Posey, 20, of 3761 Moorefield Memorial Highway in Pickens, and Jennifer Lynn Allred, 25, of 102 Pickens Drive in Pickens both “rendered assistance to a felon knowing that the felon had committed a felony.”

Police say they believe the women used one of the defendants’ vehicles to pick up the co-defendants and had just dropped the co-defendants off at the victim’s home the night of the shooting.
