A 20-year-old man is wanted in connection to a burglary in the Pinewood area.

Willie J.N. Green is wanted on charges of second-degree violent burglary and third-degree burglary, according to Mark Bordeaux, public information officer for Sumter County Sheriff’s Office. Green allegedly stole numerous items, including a four-wheeler, from a residence in the Pinewood area on March 28.

Investigators have collected evidence and started making arrests in these cases.
