A man wanted as a fugitive and on burglary charges out of Georgia was arrested late Thursday on Hilton Head Island and now faces additional charges, according to a news release just after 10 p.m. from the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.
An alert several hours before had warned residents and visitors about a heavy police presence in the Marshland Road and Leg O' Mutton Road area as the Sheriff's Office searched for the man.
The suspect — 26-year-old Bernard Garvin — was wanted on fugitive and burglary charges in Georgia, said Lt. Col. Bill Neill, spokesman for the Sheriff's Office.
"We attempted to make the arrest when he fled," Neill said.
Garvin, of Hilton Head, was being held on Friday morning at the Beaufort County Detention Center on charges of failure to stop for blue lights, driving with a suspended license, being a fugitive from arrest, fleeing to evade arrest, trespassing and simple possession of marijuana, according to jail records.
Bond had not been set, the records indicated.
