SCSO third shift deputies spotted a stolen truck this morning in the Clifton community of Spartanburg County believed to be operated by Joshua Kyle Warren, W/M, DOB: 012088, 476 Halls Bridge Rd., Campobello, SC, 29322. That truck is believed to be the same truck that was stolen from this county on June 3, 2017, and then it was involved in the incident in Rutherford County, NC, where the occupants of that truck fired multiple rounds at a Rutherford County deputy on June 6, 2017, when he attempted a traffic stop. Since that incident in North Carolina, this agency has been working closely with the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office, and information was developed over the weekend that Warren may be hiding out in the Clifton area. Numerous officers saturated that area yesterday and located Warren’s girlfriend, Susan Brooke Abernathy, W/F, DOB: 021584, 110 Dixie Dr., Blacksburg, SC, 29702. She refused to cooperate with investigators and was arrested on an outstanding bench warrant for Driving Under Suspension from this county and a Fugitive from Justice charge, since Rutherford County had an active warrant on her for being in possession of the stolen truck from here in their county. Deputies remained in the Clifton area, which led to the incident this morning, and that report can be found on pages 30-31 of today’s media report. The truck had been painted a different color in an effort to conceal its identity. First shift officers replaced our third shift officers  in the Clifton area, and later this morning, a resident in that area notified us that he believed he had captured Warren on his home surveillance system carrying a long gun. The resident shared those images with us, which greatly aided us in narrowing our search area, and Warren was spotted without the gun and arrested without incident before noon. Warren invoked his right to an attorney, and he was transported to the hospital for treatment of a foot injury. He was released from the hospital and booked into the detention facility at 4:50 PM. In addition to a Grand Larceny warrant for the stolen truck, Warren also had active warrants for Violation of Probation, and 4 General Sessions bench warrants, 2 for Failure to Appear for Possession of Stolen Vehicle and 2 for Failure to Appear for Lewd Act on a Minor. Our investigation continues in trying to locate the weapon Warren is carrying in the surveillance photos. It is unknown if that weapon is the one that was used in the incident in North Carolina. Both the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office and the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office sincerely appreciate the assistance of the residents of the Clifton community in apprehending Warren and Abernathy and would encourage all citizens to continue working with law enforcement to ensure their neighborhood is safe. All of our personnel also send our best wishes to the Rutherford County deputy, as he continues to recover from his injuries, and are thankful his incident didn’t end more tragically.
