SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

Berkeley County deputies have arrested a Live 5 Most Wanted suspect sought by Summerville police.

Joseph Allen Dean, 34, was wanted on charges of failure to stop for a blue light and grand larceny in connection with a May 23 incident in which an officer tried to pull Dean over.

"Saw a trailer without any tail lights in an area where we've had an extensive amount of air conditioning units and motorcycles stolen," said Capt. Jon Rogers.

Officers tried to stop Dean and that's when he stopped the truck got out and ran, according to Rogers.

"Turns out once we got it all sorted out he had borrowed the truck from a friend and then he had gone and stole the trailer from someone else."

Dean has a long criminal record that includes several convictions for theft.

He was taken into custody over the holiday weekend.
