Agents with the 15th Circuit Drug Enforcement Unit arrested two men and are looking for a third in connection with drug sales in Georgetown County, said Carrie Cuthbertson, spokeswoman for the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office.
About noon Wednesday, agents arrested Walker Dwane Bone, 20, of Georgetown, Cuthbertson said. He is charged with failure to stop for blue lights, obstruction of justice and two counts of possession of a controlled substance.
Shaquille Walker, 20, of Georgetown, on Monday was charged with one county of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Police have a warrant for the arrest of Xavier Rashon Reed, 19, of Georgetown charging him with two counts of first-degree assault and battery and failure to stop for blue lights.
Agents saw the three men in a 1998 Lincoln SUV “engaged in activity consistent with drug sales” and traffic infractions on Aug. 11, Cuthbertson said. When police tried to stop the vehicle, which Cuthbertson said was driven by Bone, the men fled.
Bone, according to police, fled on foot from the still moving vehicle. Reed, who had been sitting in the front passenger seat took control of the vehicle which crashed into a house at the intersection of Yadkin Avenue and Congaree Lane “before attempting to run over agents who were on foot,” Cuthbertson said.
Reed and another passenger fled the scene in the Lincoln SUV.
Residents helped police track the Lincoln to Linen Lane. There police said Reed fled on foot through a creek.
Inside the car, police found drug paraphernalia, marijuana remnants and hand gun bullets.
Authorities continue to look for Bone and Reed who are considered possibly armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information about their whereabouts can call the Drug Enforcement Unit, 461-1661, or send an anonymous tip by texting “GCSOTIP” followed by the message to 274637.
