South Carolina locksmiths say recent sex-offender arrest highlights need for reform on state locksmith regulations

By Elizabeth Townsend

In the wake of local locksmith and convicted sex offender Panteleimon "Peter" Spirakis' most recent arrest, some locksmiths along the Grand Strand point to a need for legislation that regulates the industry in South Carolina. "If there isn't a law, there needs to be," Michelle Evans, one of Spirakis' former customers, said.

Nick Allen, owner of Affordable Lock and Key agrees that regulations are needed, and he rekeyed Evans' home for free after she told him Spirakis changed her locks before his arrest.
