One man has been arrested and ne is still on the run after the pair allegedly fled from authorities and crashed a car into a house this week.
The 15th Circuit Drug Enforcement Unit, in a press release, said 20-year-old Walker Dwane Bone was arrested at around noon Wednesday. He had been sought in connection with the incident that occurred Monday night.
According to the release, agents saw three men in a 1998 Lincoln SUV “engaged in activity consistent with drug sales and numerous traffic infractions.”
At this time Agents attempted to stop the vehicle which was being driven by Bone of 1837 Pringle Ferry Road. He failed to stop.
After travelling a short distance, Bone jumped from the moving car and fled on foot. The front seat passenger, Xavier Rashon Reed, 19, of 29 Oxford Lane in Georgetown, then took control of the vehicle.
“Reed crashed the Lincoln into a house at the intersection of Yadkin Ave. and Congaree Lane before attempting to run over Agents who were on foot. Reed, and another passenger, then fled the scene with the vehicle,” the release states. “With the help of citizens the Lincoln was tracked to Linen Lane in Georgetown where Shaquille Walker, the passenger, was arrested. Reed fled on foot through a creek and was not located.”
Agents found drug paraphernalia and marijuana remnants in the vehicle as well as hand gun bullets. Walker was arrested, charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and taken to the Georgetown County Detention Center.
Warrants were obtained for both Bone and Reed.
After Bone was found at his home Wednesday, he was charged with Failure to Stop for Blue Lights, Obstruction of Justice, two counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance.
