(Walhalla, SC)——————Earlier today, the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office issued a press release after receiving word from the U.S. Marshals Service that a suspect charged in a March 2015 homicide near Seneca was apprehended in Charlotte, North Carolina.
31 year old Dw’Ntraquis Rashaad Campbell of Oak Hill Street in Greenwood, SC, was arrested without incident earlier this morning by the U.S. Marshal Service Operation Intercept Fugitive Task Force.
According to records from the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office online, Campbell was booked into jail around 9:35am this morning.
According to information the Sheriff’s Office received, the U.S. Marshals Service received information this week that Campbell could be in the Charlotte, NC area. Earlier this morning, Campbell was observed by the Marshals Service leaving a house on a bicycle near Coronet Way. The Fugitive Task force pursued Campbell, set up a perimeter and received additional support and resources from the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. After checking a couple of residences in the area, the Task Force surrounded a home, upon which Campbell came out of the house with hands up and surrendered to law enforcement.
Campbell was charged in arrest warrants obtained by the Sheriff’s Office on March 9th, 2015 with one count of Murder in the shooting death of Anthony Letron Holden of Seneca, plus, three counts of Attempted Murder and one count of Possession of a Weapon During Commission of a Violent Crime in an incident that occurred at the former Sonny’s Bar and Grill on Shiloh Road at Wells Highway that took place during the early morning hours of March 8th, 2015.
“The fugitive being located is the result of our investigators persistence in working with the U.S. Marshals,” says Oconee County Sheriff Mike Crenshaw.
Campbell will be going through the extradition process for his return to Oconee County.
