BLYTHEWOOD, SC (WIS) -

Richland County Sheriff's deputies are searching for a man they believe is responsible for stealing over $20,000 in audio equipment and sterling silver from an area church in mid-October.

Sheriff Leon Lott says DNA evidence collected at the scene has linked 19-year-old Dnice Sulton to the burglary.

Sulton is accused of breaking into Grace Cathedral on Winnsboro Road during the night of October 19 or early October 20. 

After breaking a rear window of the church, Sulton stole audio equipment and sterling silver valued at $20,500, Lott said.

Richland County Sheriff's Department forensic technicians collected DNA evidence at the scene that later linked Sulton to the crime, the sheriff said.  

If you know Sulton's whereabouts, you are urged to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC. You could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1000.
