Charleston police officer locates fugitive on Johns Island

JOHNS ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

Authorities say a 20-year-old man wanted by the Charleston County Sheriff's Office was arrested after a Charleston police officer on patrol on Johns Island spotted the suspect jumping into a car.

Charleston police handed Marty Lee Gladden over to Charleston County deputies.

On Wednesday afternoon, police say an officer was patrolling the area of Brownswood Road near Comsee Lane on Johns Island when Gladden appeared to jump into his girlfriend's car.

Authorities say Gladden matched the description of a suspect who fled on foot from an attempted burglary that happened in the nearby Summertrees neighborhood.

When police stopped the vehicle, Gladden said he and his girlfriend had only stopped the vehicle to switch drivers.

Police say the officer checked Gladden's driver's license and discovered he was wanted by the Charleston County Sheriff's Office for an incident last year for failure to appear in reference to the possession of a firearm.

On June 14, 2012, a Charleston County Sheriff's Office deputy arrested Gladden following a traffic stop. According to investigators, it all started when Gladden refused to stop for a deputy end eventually parked on a driveway on Yost Lane.

A sheriff's office report states that as other authorities arrived on scene, the deputy noticed Gladden appearing to watch him and slowly slipping his right hand down the side of his seat and pushing something.

The deputy told Gladden to stop moving and get out of the car.

Investigators say they found a small pistol on the driver's side where Gladden appeared to be moving something. According to the sheriff's office, Gladden made a confession on audio and video that the pistol was his and told investigators that he was currently out of jail on bond for armed robbery.
