Four suspects were arrested Thursday, charged with the early-morning break-in at the Provision Co. restaurant near Holden Beach.

According to a sheriff’s office press release, an employee noticed a broken window, damaged items and a stolen flat-screen TV when the employee went to work and reported the break-in.

Sheriff’s deputies conducting surveillance in the area noticed the suspects loading the TV in the back of the car.

The surveillance was being done as part of the sheriff’s office community policing initiative, which targeted several other break-ins in the Supply area, the release states.

According to the release, when the suspects left the scene, deputies conducted a traffic stop on the suspect’s vehicle. The stolen property was returned to the owner.

The investigation is on going and more charges are expected.

The following suspects were charged in connection with the break-in:

•Clinton Bruce Harrelson, 31, of 1308 Cedar Landing Road, Supply; charged with breaking and entering and felony larceny. Harrelson was in custody at the Brunswick County Detention Center in lieu of a $20,000 bond.

•Jessica Dawn Matthews, 25, of 2846 Peg Leg Lane, Supply; charged with possession of stolen property. Matthews was taken to the detention center and is under a $5,000 bond.

•Tanya Renee Powers, 31, of 1308 Cedar Landing Road, Supply; charged with possession of stolen property. Powers was at the detention center under a $5,000 bond.
