Two fugitives from out of state were caught in Kershaw County last week. 

On January 4, Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputies and the U.S. Marshals Task Force arrested Jacob L. Penn III, 33, of Cassatt and Rodney Malloy, 37, address unknown, after receiving information that Penn was wanted by authorities in North Dakota, according to a KCSO press release.

At about 3:45 p.m. on January 4, a KCSO/U.S. Marshals Service arrest team arrested Penn at 2542 Porter Road, Cassatt, on failure to appear arrest warrants on charges of possession with intent to distribute controlled substances, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, theft of property (two counts), prohibited possession of a firearm, child endangerment (two counts), possession of drug paraphernalia (two counts) and aggravated assault. Penn is also wanted by the N.C. Highway Patrol for fleeing to elude arrest and driving left of center. Additionally, Penn is wanted by Minnesota authorities for violation of a court order and two felony failure to appear warrants. At the scene of the arrest, Penn was found to be in possession of a quantity of methamphetamine and was charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine by KCSO.

“The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Service frequently work together in locating and arresting fugitives and this effort produced extra results,” Sheriff Jim Matthews said in the press release. “We have enough of our own local criminals with whom we deal and we are happy to help catch these out-of-state criminals and get them out of Kershaw County.”

During the course of Penn’s arrest, another individual at the residence, later identified as Rodney Malloy, was found to be wanted by the Arkansas Board of Parole for a parole violation, failure to register for child sex offense, terroristic threatening, failure to appear, possession of controlled substances and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the press release.

At the location of the arrests, KCSO investigators discovered a 1997 Honda Accord that was reported stolen from Oklahoma on Dec. 28, according to the press release.

Penn has been previously charged in North Carolina, Missouri, Arkansas, North Dakota and Minnesota with theft by receiving, possession with intent to distribute counterfeit Schedule I drugs, domestic assault by strangulation, assault on a child under 12, possession of a stolen vehicle, receiving stolen vehicle, breaking and/or entering, larceny after breaking and entering, obtaining property by false pretenses, possession of stolen goods, misdemeanor larceny, probation violation, forgery, uttering a forged instrument, common law forgery, simple assault, assault on a female, resisting a public officer, disturbing the peace, tampering with motor vehicle, driving with no license, driving under suspension and trespassing, according to the press release.

Malloy has previously been arrested in North Carolina, Nebraska, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas and Tennessee and charged with domestic battering (3rd degree), terroristic threatening, failure to appear, criminal contempt, possession of counterfeit substances with intent to distribute, sexual assault (4th degree), breaking or entering, theft of property, failure to register as sex offender, possession of controlled substances schedule I and II, possession of drug paraphernalia, multiple narcotics arrests, theft of motor fuel, numerous traffic offenses, criminal impersonation and aggravated assault (domestic violence), according to the press release.

 Penn and Malloy were transported to the Kershaw County Detention Center where they remain pending extradition, according to the press release.
