ANDERSON — John Luther Murphy, 26, of Williamston, was arrested near Woodbine, Ga., after a six-hour chase through the area’s marshes and woodlands, according to the Florida Times-Union.


Murphy was wanted in connection with the Feb. 1 grand larceny of a 2002 Honda Accord, which occurred at the Spinx Station on S.C. 86 in Piedmont.


Murphy was apprehended by Camden County deputies after he fled the scene where the stolen vehicle ran out of gas.


Anderson County investigators were notified of Murphy’s arrest when a query via the National Crime Information Center’s (NCIC) database indicated that Anderson County had an active warrant for his arrest.


Per investigators, Murphy will undergo an extradition hearing in Georgia before being returned to South Carolina to answer the pending charge. The vehicle, which was towed to the Camden County Sheriff’s Office in St. Marys, Ga., will be returned to the owner as soon as possible.
