Teenage roller skaters turn Columbia gym break-in into bizarre burglary story

Columbia, South Carolina – The Richland County Sheriff’s Department (RCSD) apprehended four teenagers for two break-ins at the R1 CrossFit Gym.

These break-ins happened on Saturday, December 23, and Thursday, December 28, at 3400 Forest Drive.

On December 23, deputies went to the gym after a break-in alarm went off. There, they found Hannah Harder and Alexander Clement, both 17, roller skating inside.

The deputies discovered a backpack with tools for breaking in, which belonged to one of the teenagers.

Harder and Clement were arrested for second-degree burglary, taken to jail, and later released on a $15,000 PR bond.

On December 28, another alarm led deputies to Timothy Walden and Kyle Livingston, both 17, in the gym.

After a warning from a K9 unit, Walden and Livingston surrendered and were arrested, also for second-degree burglary.

RCSD reports that, including these incidents, seven people have been arrested for burglaries at this gym in the past month.
