Lugoff, SC (WACH)- A police chase in Lugoff lands two Camden men in jail.
Around 11:15 a.m. Monday, Kershaw County Sheriffâ??s deputies arrested Marcus Antwon Greene,24, and Davon Jermaine Mickle,26, both of Camden. Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Mattews says both men have extensive criminal records.
A Kershaw County Sheriffâ??s investigator responded to a call of a fight in progress at a Youngâ??s store on US-1 in Lugoff after all uniformed patrol officers were tied up on other calls. A description of the suspectsâ?? vehicle was transmitted by 911 dispatch and the investigator spotted the suspect vehicle on US-1 between Lugoff and Elgin. The investigator began pursuing the vehicle as it went through several neighborhoods, running cars off the road. The pursuit ended when Greene ran his vehicle into a ditch. Both Greene and Mickle fled the scene on foot.
A deputy pursued Greene on foot and was able to arrest him as he was attempting to break into the back door of a home on Rabon Circle in Elgin. In the meantime, Mickle who had fled the scene attempted to hide behind a storage building behind a home on Hickory Lane in Lugoff, only to be spotted by the homeowner who called 911. Deputies who were nearby were able to apprehend Mickle.
