Five Arrested In Two Incidents

    On Jan. 14, the Sheriff’s Office responded to a residence on Chappells Highway in reference to a larceny in progress. The subjects fled into the woods. The bloodhound tracking team responded to the scene and shortly after, Phillip Derrick and Christopher Claphan (both of Greenwood County) were both arrested and charged accordingly.
  Three suspects were arrested on Jan. 15 in connection to a burglary that occurred near Holly Ferry Road. Jessie Brazell, Nicholas Bullock, and Melyssa Skowron (all from Lexington County) are currently behind bars at the Saluda County Detention Center.
  Sheriff Price is proud of the hard work of the men and women of the Sheriff’s Office and their commitment to keeping the citizens of Saluda County safe.


Court Clears 44 Cases

   The Saluda County General Sessions court was almost back to normal in December.
  Unlike the last session that was all virtual, the December court had in-person appearances by defendants, attorneys, judge and staff.
  But like the previous session, there was no jury.
  Clerk of Court Sheri Coleman said she has not been able to draw names for grand jury and petit jurors, and doesn’t know when she be able to during the pandemic.
