UPDATE: Wanted man turns self in

Christopher Wilson Strange, a Clover man described as armed and dangerous, turned himself into authorities at the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office Tuesday at 2:22 p.m., one day after Myrtle Beach Police recovered the 2013 red Ford Lariat pickup truck Strange is suspected of stealing last Thursday from a Rodgers Chapel Road residence.

According to Halifax County Sheriff Fred S. Clark, Strange was wanted on two counts of breaking and entering, two counts of grand larceny and two counts of vandalism. 

At approximately 11 a.m. Thursday morning, investigators received information Strange was at a residence on Mill Road in Clover. 

Upon their arrival, he fled into a wooded area behind the house, Clark said. 

Deputy C. A. Bates V responded with his tracking canine and was able to track the subject for a distance. 

Authorities said they believed a vehicle possibly picked up Strange at another location on Mill Road. 

Following his arrest Tuesday, the sheriff said additional charges are pending against Strange.

Investigator M. A. Womack was in charge of the investigation that led to Strange’s arrest on Tuesday.


Clark praised Womack’s investigation of the case and expressed appreciation to the citizens who had provided information and tips leading to Strange’s arrest.
