ANDREWS, S.C. (WCIV) -- Georgetown County deputies arrested two people on charges of stealing copper wire from a business. 

According to the sheriff's office, deputies were dispatched to Andrews Wire Friday afternoon on reports of suspicious noise coming from the building. While clearing the building, deputies found a man hiding and a woman trying to run from the area in a vehicle.
