A 19-year-old Duval County man was arrested early Wednesday morning charged with four counts of burglary to vehicles in the parking lot of a Ponte Vedra Beach apartment complex.

According to the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office, Dherick David Lockett was booked into jail and held on $10,000 bond. 

Deputies responded at 12:45 a.m. Wednesday to reports of two men looking into vehicles in the parking lot of The Fountain's in the 600 block of A1A North and checking to see if the doors were locked.

When the first responding deputy saw the two men standing near a Jeep, the suspects ran to the back of the complex. Additional deputies responded and established a perimeter around the complex.

One of the subjects, Lockett, was spotted near the entrance by a deputy a short time later and was taken into custody without further incident. The second person was not located or identified.

Deputies confirmed that at least four vehicles were entered at the complex. Additional charges are pending further investigation as the search for the second suspect continues.
