LORIS, SC (WMBF) -
Three men are facing charges after reportedly robbing an Horry County family who were decorating their home for the holidays.
The Horry County Police Department charged 19-year-old K'Shawn Aldontay Morris with armed robbery, burglary, resisting arrest, unlawful carrying of a pistol and six counts of kidnapping.
Investigators also charged 21-year-old Maurice Alexander Morris and 21-year-old Troy Tereal Gibson with armed robbery and resisting arrest.
The victims said they were decorating the family Christmas tree Saturday night when three masked, armed men entered their Loris home on Camp Swamp Road Saturday night.
According to the victims, the three suspects held them at gunpoint and forced them to get on the ground while they ransacked their home. A police report states that the suspects separated the parents from the children before robbing them and stealing one of their vehicles.
Authorities say the suspects also stole an Xbox 360, Kinect, two jewelry boxes with jewelry, two men's watches, a portable DVD player, medicines, and cell phones.
Officers were then notified to be on the lookout for a stolen 2007 Toyota Yaris in connection to the home invasion. Police say a car matching the description was spotted running a stop sign as it turned onto Freemont Road from Pine Needle Estates.
According to police, the officer that spotted the stolen vehicle activated his blue lights and followed the car, which was driving in the wrong lane. A report states that the suspects' car turned onto Harris Road where the the three abandoned the vehicle which was still in motion.
Police say the vehicle then crashed into a home as the suspects took off on foot down a dirt path behind a home.
According to investigators, the officer was able to catch up to one of the suspects, 19-year-old K'Shawn Aldontay Morris. The other two men got away but were caught the following day.
Neighbors near the crime scene say home invasions and burglaries are becoming more and more commonplace because of limited police patrols and close proximity to the North Carolina Border.
"We don't have many police patrols out here," said neighbor John Gerald. "You've got at least 20 or 30 minutes for someone to respond out here."
