Most Wanted: Christopher Shope

Posted: Updated:


CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -Probation and Parole agents in Charleston County are looking for Christopher Shope.

Shope, 27, is wanted for a probation violation after being convicted of assaulting a police officer.

"Anybody who assaults a police officer obviously is a danger to the community at large," said Agent in Charge Mitchell Ray.

Probation agents say Shope last reported to his probation officer in September 2010, and then disappeared.

"He's moved away from his residence. we've done a home visit, the residence is basically vacant. Basically he moved out under the cover of night and we've not heard from him since," Ray said.

Shope has a rap sheet that includes a conviction for resisting arrest.

Probation agents can't understand why Shope ran after getting a break from a judge, a sentence of 53 days and one year on probation.

"With a light sentence like that one would tend to believe you would want to complete the terms of your probation and get it over with," said Ray.

Anyone with information on Shope's whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.

You can remain anonymous and may earn a cash reward.
