In a U.S. Marshal led operation, Lowcountry authorities joined together to nab four fugitives last week, one of whom was on the run for four years.
Authorities arrested 42-year-old Mosaline Deas, 26-year-old Marvin Brown, 28-year-old Albert "Biz" Harris and 25-year-old Anthony Clark.
Deas was charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature. Acting on developed information, investigators traveled to the 6000 block of Branton Rd., in Ravenel. Authorities say Deas was found in the back bedroom after family members told officials Deas was not home. Two family members were subsequently charged with providing false information to police.
Brown was charged with attempted murder, armed robbery and possession of a weapon during a crime of violence. Brown is accused of shooting an individual in the stomach and stealing his I-pod. The victim later died. Brown was seen walking in the Park Circle area of North Charleston behind a school.
Harris was charged with two counts of trafficking cocaine and is also wanted by South Carolina Probation and Parole for a probation violation. Harris, who had been on the run for 4 years, was found at a trailer in St. Stephens hiding in a bedroom, an incident report states. He was locked up at the Berkeley County Detention Center.
Clark was wanted for a probation violation, but has an original charge of trafficking cocaine. Investigators, acting on a tip through a confidential informant, located Clark in an apartment complex near Ladson and Dorchester Road.
"Cooperative law enforcement is the key to success. The U.S. Marshals and their fellow law enforcement officers work as a collective group, which acts a force multiplier, making our task forces so successful. These arrests are a result of an ongoing effort of law enforcement to make our communities safe for us today, and for our children tomorrow." stated Kelvin Washington, U.S. Marshal for South Carolina.
