On July 26, 2014 Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Antonio Green (48) who lives at 1978 Bunker Hill Rd. Elgin, SC after he reportedly assaulted his 12 year old son. During the early morning hours of July 26th, Green, who was intoxicated, got into an argument with his 12 year old son over some missing keys. During the argument Green hit the boy in the head with a flashlight and with his fists. The boy fled the residence and went to several neighbor’s homes for help. The residents of one home called 911 and deputies responded. Kershaw County EMS was also called and treated the boy at the scene before transporting him to Kershaw Health hospital. Deputies arrested Green at his home on Bunker Hill Rd. and transported him to the Kershaw County Detention Center. A Kershaw County investigator interviewed the victim at the hospital and obtained a statement and photographs of his injuries. Green has been charged with assault and battery 2nd degree. On Sunday July 27, 2014 Green’s bond was set at $20,000.00 and he remains in jail at this time. The victim has been removed from the home and is staying with relatives. Green has an extensive arrest record to include arrests for contributing to the delinquency of a minor, numerous resisting arrests, assault and battery, disorderly conduct, DUI (multiple), DUS (multiple), criminal domestic violence, criminal domestic violence high and aggravated and open container. “This is a very sad situation. No child should be subjected to this kind of abuse by a parent. Mr. Green’s alcohol problem and the violence it leads to needs to be dealt with before he more seriously injures someone,” said Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews.

The Kershaw County R ecreation Department and First Baptist Church Camden  teamed up this week to provide swimming lessons to 14 kids who attend FBC’s urban stars group, part of FBC Camden’s urban missions ministry.  Kids ages 7-14 learned to swim at the rec dept’s pool on Battleship Road in Camden.  The rec dept rewarded each participant with a pool membership for the remainder of the 2014 pool season for completing the course!  “Swimming is a life saving skill which many of our kids wouldn’t have had the opportunity to learn without the rec dept’s help” said KOOL 102.7’s Patty Rose, director of the urban missions ministry at FBC. “Thanks to Joe Eason, Amy Peebles and all at the Kershaw County Recreation Department who made the swimming lessons possible”.

On July 23, 2014 Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office investigators, along with detectives from the Oceanside Police Department in Oceanside, California, arrested Lindsay Gretchen Sutton (27) who resides in Camden, SC on a warrant charging her with Accessory to Murder.

In late 2013 Oceanside investigators contacted the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office asking for help in locating Sutton. They advised Kershaw County investigators that Sutton had been involved indirectly with a gang related homicide in Oceanside. KCSO investigators were able to locate Sutton at her place of employment and she agreed to be interviewed. Oceanside detectives travelled to Kershaw County for the interview.

Subsequent to this interview and additional investigation by the Oceanside Police Department, they obtained an arrest warrant for Sutton. They once again contacted the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office and asked investigators for assistance in locating Sutton. Oceanside detectives again travelled to Kershaw County and were present when Sutton was arrested on July 23rd.

Extradition proceedings are taking place at this time. Her bond in California has been set at $1 million. She remains incarcerated in the Kershaw County Detention Center pending the completion of the extradition process.Lindsay Sutton

“It is our information that Sutton moved to Kershaw County to escape the gang situation she had been involved in. She apparently had begun to turn her life around and was starting over in Kershaw County where she had family ties. Unfortunately for her, her past caught up with her and now she has to suffer the consequences of her previous bad choices,” said Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews.

Sutton has no previous arrests in Kershaw County, but has an arrest for DUI, being under the influence of a controlled substance and possession of controlled substance paraphernalia in California.
