Investigators locate Mt. Pleasant fugitives at downtown Charleston home

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Investigators located two fugitives and two stolen guns at a downtown Charleston home on Wednesday.

The Charleston Police Department arrested 22-year-old Dominique Horry and 19-year-old Eric Martin Scott Jr. Both men have several outstanding warrants with the Mount Pleasant Police Department.

CPD officials say Horry was also out on $25,000 bond for an attempted murder charge out of Mount Pleasant.

At 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, officers went to a home on North Romney Street in order to locate Horry and Scott.

A police report states when officers knocked on the door, Scott opened it, saw the officers and attempted to close the door. Officers say they were able to gain entry into the home and detain Scott.

Officers reported seeing Horry, who was only wearing underwear, laying on the couch in the living room, and asked police if he could put on his pants. Investigators say officers found a clear plastic bag containing 7 grams of marijuana in Horry's pants.

Authorities also found two stolen handguns, 7 grams of marijuana and more than $700 in cash.

In addition, CPD officials say 21-year-old Jasmin Palmer and two children were found in the apartment.

Charleston police charged Palmer and Scott with two counts of possession of a stolen handgun and two counts of unlawful conduct towards a child. Horry was also charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute.

Police are continuing the investigation.
