CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA -- A Charleston County homeowner held an intruder at gunpoint early Sunday after hearing a noise on the second floor of his home on Grand Concourse Street, authorities said Sunday.

Jessie Pinckney, 19, of Charleston, has been charged with first-degree burglary, according to an arrest warrant. A judge ordered Pinckney held without bond.

Charleston County Sheriff's Office deputies said a man used a ladder in the homeowner's back yard to climb to the roof at 1:12 a.m. and enter the house through an unlocked window.

When the homeowner heard a noise upstairs, he got a shotgun and found the intruder in a hallway. The intruder was held at gunpoint until deputies arrived, according to the warrant.
