S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) agents arrested a Camden man April 29 and charged him and his already jailed 18-year-old son with threatening a Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputy.

According to a SLED press release, agents arrested Jesse Junior Salmond, 48, and his son, Skigerria “Sky” Tyreck Salmond, 18, and charged them with threatening the life, person or family of a public employee and criminal conspiracy. SLED investigated the case at the KSCO’s request.

According to copies of warrants SLED provided with its press release, Sky Salmond threatened the deputy “with bodily injury or death” during a recorded jail call with his father on April 4. The warrant alleges that Kershaw County Detention Center (KCDC) officials informed him that all comments were going to be heard by law enforcement.

“The message was received by the victim,” the warrant said, referring to the unnamed deputy. “This communication did threaten the life of a public law enforcement officer and was directly related to the victim’s professional responsibilities.”

A separate warrant on Sky Salmond alleges that, by communicating with his father, they conspired to threaten the deputy.

The warrants against Jesse Salmond allege that he, too, threatened the deputy’s life or well-being during the phone call. It also alleges that he actually stated that he knew the call would be heard by law enforcement and did not care. A second warrant also charged Jesse Salmond with conspiracy.

According to online KCDC records, Sky Salmond was already in jail, being held on more than $17,000 bond after being arrested and charged by deputies in mid-March for third-degree burglary and two counts of petit larceny.

Deputies arrested Sky Salmond in March when he was already out on bond for previous arrests in August and October 2017 for grand larceny, value more than $2,000 but less than $10,000, and two counts of third-degree burglary. He had been out on a total of $23,500 bond at the time of his arrest in March.

Online Kershaw County Clerk of Court records indicated deputies arrested Jesse Salmond on March 6 for third-degree burglary. A bail bonding company paid his $10,000 bond the same day. Deputies arrested Jesse Salmond again just three days later interfering or hindering officers serving a warrant. He was released the same day on a $3,000 personal recognizance bond.

After their arrests, a magistrate judge set a total of $20,000 bond each for Jesse and Sky Salmond for the public employee threat and criminal conspiracy charges. They remain detained at the KCDC.
