The physical fitness and tenacity of two Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputies is being credited in the arrest Saturday of a Camden man wanted by the S.C. Department of Probation, Parole and Pardons (SCDPPP). According to a KCSO press release, deputies spotted Freddie Kenneth Davis, 36, at approximately 1:15 p.m. at an East DeKalb Street laundromat after receiving information Davis had been staying at an east Camden residence. After being seen at the laundromat, Davis fled on foot into Little Pine Tree Creek, where deputies Bryan Byrd and Michael Ross lost sight of him.
