COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Colleton County Sheriff's Office deputies have captured one of their top ten most-wanted suspects after he escaped their clutches Friday.

According to sheriff's office Chief Deputy Ted Stanfield, Christopher Sible was taken into custody Monday around 3 p.m. at a home on Dublin Street in Walterboro.  The main resident of the home, Christopher David Morton, is charged with harboring a fugitive.

Authorities said Sible again tried to dive out a window to avoid apprehension, but the window was open this time and more deputies where outside waiting where he was taken into custody.

His arrest comes three days after deputies were serving an arrest warrant at 5141 Pleasant Grove Road for Christopher J. Sible, wanted for a Oct. 30 assault, on Friday afternoon.

When deputies entered the residence, Sible ran out of a closet and dove through a closed window, shattering the glass and apparently caused a laceration to himself, possibly in the abdomen area. When deputies gave chase, he ran into an adjacent wooded area on foot.

One deputy was injured when he fell on a concrete area during the foot pursuit and received abrasions and a laceration to his leg which required emergency medical attention and several stitches.

The Colleton County Sheriff's Office Tracking Team responded to the area along with assistance from the Charleston County Sheriff's Office Aviation Unit and a search was held, but they could not find Sible, until Monday.

He is now charged with resisting arrest with injury to officer.
