The Richland County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a vandalism incident that occurred at the home of Jonathan Pentland.
Richland County deputies were called to the Pentland home around 8:20 pm due to unknown protesters vandalizing the home. Objects were thrown at the home and one went through an upstairs window. A light fixture attached to the home was also broken.
While RCSD has always supported peaceful protests, criminal acts will not be tolerated and those who committed this vandalism will face consequences.
The family has been extracted from the home by law enforcement and transported to another location. Due to the criminal activity, deputies have closed access to Barony Place and surrounding streets except to residents. We ask that the public stay away from the location.
