    ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WACH) – A man with a lengthy criminal history is now facing even more burglary charges, according to the Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office.

    According to Sheriff Leroy Ravenell, 44-year-old David Hoover, Jr. has been charged with second-degree burglary, grand larceny and malicious injury to property.

    “The detention center doors seem to be revolving doors for this individual,” the sheriff said. “As soon as he is out on bond, he’s back in for yet another charge.”

    Hoover, Jr. has been in the Orangeburg County Detention Center since early June on a total of $26,000 bond charges accusing him of breaking into two churches in May.

    Forensic evidence then came back from testing that implicated Hoover, Jr. in a May 17 home burglary in North where more than $2,000 worth of electronics were stolen.

    Before Hoover, Jr. broke into the two churches, he was charged with burglarizing Orangeburg County property in Neeses in January.

    Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Investigator Jared Kittrell also said Hoover, Jr. has an extensive criminal history that dates back to 1992.

    Bond was set on Hoover, Jr. at $120,000 Wednesday.
