On August 29, 2017, a Kershaw County Sheriff's Office deputy arrested Cody Gene Jackson (26) from Elgin after Jackson fled from a residence on Seminole Way in Elgin and led the deputy on a lengthy foot chase. Jackson was charged with receiving stolen goods for being in possession of a stolen automobile. During that arrest, Christopher Alexander Cravets (21) who was wanted on armed robbery charges, also fled the residence on foot. He was arrested several hours later after an armed homeowner found him hiding in the homeowner's car and held him for deputies.
