A third suspect has been arrested in a complex case that involved two high speed chases in the Nakina area.
Shaquelle Oneal McArthur, 27, of Happy Home Rd., Nakina was charged with conspiracy to obtain property by false pretenses on a warrant issued Oct. 13. He was arrested this week.
Oneal is alleged to have agreed to buy a stolen Honda Recon ATV, valued at $5,000, from Christopher Dean McPherson on Oct. 13.
McPherson was allegedly driving the stolen four wheeler when he was spotted by a deputy responding to call about the theft. He left the roadway on the ATV, eventually ditching the vehicle near a swamp. A tracking dog lost the scent near the water.
A short time later, Elizabeth Kirsch– driving a car identified as being near the scene of the theft — led deputies on a high speed chase that crossed the state line automobile. The car chase ended in Horry County. Both suspects face a number of felony charges in both states.
