Lexington County detectives have identified and charged a man seen in home surveillance footage after sharing the images with the public.

 Stephen George Wilson Jr. faces a first degree burglary charge for stealing a TV from a home in the 1100 block of Redmond Road in Lexington County.

 Michelle McLinden Collins is charged with being an accessory to the Redmond Road burglary.

 “The public really helped our detectives in this case,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “We hope anyone mug1who might have more information on these individuals will come forward. We think they’re involved in other burglary investigations that we’re still working.”
