{}CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Two people have been arrested in connection with two burglaries that happened in West Ashley earlier this month. Charleston Police have charged 27-year-old Romel B. Chaplin and 25-year-old Katherine Eve Holliday.

According to detention center records, Chaplin was given a $50,000 bond. Holliday received a $25,000 bond.
