CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston County Solicitors Office served Polk Bonding Agency with a Warrant for Elbert Simpkins' arrest.  Simpkins failed to appear in court on a Grand Larceny charge after being held on a $5,000 bond with Polk Bonding Agency.

Polk Bonding agent David R. Beatson, started working the case on the afternoon of September 3. He had a lead that Simpkins was staying in the downtown Charleston area, possibly on Line Street.

Later that evening, Simpkins was featured on Live 5 News as a "Most Wanted" person for the Grand Larceny warrant as well as new charges that the City of Charleston Police Department had including a charge for the burglary of the KFC/Taco Bell on Spring Street.

On Friday, September 11, around 10 pm, a tip was phoned in that Simpkins was seen entering the residence at 233D Line St. Beatson and City of Charleston Police Department immediately converged on the apartment, and Simpkins was taken into custody.

Although at the time of his arrest Simpkins was in possession of a firearm, his apprehension occurred without incident. He and the firearm were then transported to City of Charleston Police Headquarters on Lockwood Boulevard for processing.
