COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Less than six hours after her photo was released to several news organizations in the Lowcountry, one of Colleton County's Most Wanted suspects turned herself in Monday night.

According to the Colleton County Sheriff's Office, 37-year-old Shelby Kirby turned herself in after seeing her photo as one of the Colleton County Sheriff's Office Top 10 Most Wanted.

Kirby was wanted for 18 bench warrants for failure to appear in court for fraudulent checks. Deputies say she was avoiding apprehension.

Earlier Monday, the sheriff's office released the second installment of its 10 Most Wanted suspects list. In February, the sheriff's office released its initial list and within a week, five of the suspects were captured and taken into custody.
