COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A tip from a Live 5 News viewer led to the capture of Michael Donahue, a man recently featured on the weekly Most Wanted Segment.

Donahue, 29, was captured late Tuesday afternoon in St. Stephen. He was wanted for a probation violation in Colleton County.

He was place on probation after serving 10 years in prison for criminal sexual conduct with a minor and assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.

"He is a registered sex offender and I believe he is a danger to the community," said Probation and Parole Agent Jay Lemacks.

An arrest warrant was issued for Donahue in August after he failed to report to his probation supervisor.

"He's failed to provide us with documentation for his employment. He's failed to maintain a residence," said Lemacks.

Donahue also failed to finish sex offender counseling.

"Sex offenders are a huge issue for our department. We want to supervise them very closely," said Lemacks.
