A man accused of desecrating a grave in Berkeley County has been arrested.

The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office says Jordan Furman, 19, of Hanahan was arrested Sunday evening in Charleston County.

According to the BCSO, Furman was stopped by Charleston County deputies Sunday night because he was driving a stolen vehicle.

Inside the vehicle, the BCSO says Charleston County deputies found figurines reported stolen from a grave at Plantation Memorial Gardens in Moncks Corner earlier in the day.

BCSO officials say they believe Furman sometime between Saturday and Sunday afternoon stole the figurines, then set a pile of trash on fire atop the grave marker.

Furman is in jail at the Charleston County Detention Center, awaiting transfer to Berkeley County. He's charged with theft of the motor vehicle and destruction or desecration of human remains.
