Bond set at $200k for Ravenel manhunt suspect

HOLLYWOOD, SC (WCSC) -

Bond was set at $200,000 for a man suspected of stealing an SUV and leading deputies on a chase in Ravenel earlier this month.

Latrone Butler was charged with kidnapping, attempted murder and carjacking in an incident at Jericho Mobile Home Park on Monday. He was denied bond on the carjacking charge.

Butler, 27, was taken into custody early Thursday morning after Charleston County sheriff's deputies received a tip that he was at Hamm Grants Club on Scott White Road in Hollywood.

The tip informed deputies that Butler was in possession a burgundy Acura taken during a carjacking and kidnapping Monday at Jericho Mobile Home Park.

Butler was also linked by deputies to a similar incident involving a stolen black Ford Explorer on Dec. 1 that led to a chase with deputies on Highway 17 in Ravenel. He was being sought on outstanding charges of failure to stop for blue lights and possession of a stolen motor vehicle in that incident.

When deputies arrived at Hamm Grants Club Thursday morning, they located the stolen Acura parked behind the club. Butler was taken into custody without incident.
