ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - U.S. Marshals arrested two men in Raleigh, NC who are wanted for crimes in Orangeburg County.

The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office says 18-year-old Tyshon Johnson and 26-year-old Orlando Neals, both of whom reside on Rail Street in Bowman, were taken into custody around 8 a.m. Monday.

Johnson is charged with attempted murder in connection with a shooting and assault which happened on Perry Street on Aug. 24. Authorities say Johnson shot the victim multiple times before striking him with a handgun.

Neals is charged with petit larceny and swindling after authorities say he sold a vehicle he falsely claimed to be his grandfather's. That vehicle, which Neals sold to a recycling business for $400, actually belonged to an Orangeburg man, deputies say.

"The collaborative investigative efforts of the U.S. Marshal Service continue to prove fruitful as we are locating fugitives and returning them to Orangeburg County to face the charges they have in this county," Leroy Ravenell, Orangeburg County Sheriff said.

Both suspects will be taken to the Orangeburg County Detention Center, pending a bond hearing.
