‘Most Wanted’ probation violator caught in S.C.

Published 10:21 am Monday, October 12, 2009

One of four people who made last week’s list of Most Wanted Probation Violators has been apprehended in South Carolina; authorities said they have leads on the other three people featured last week.

Lawrence County Chief Probation Officer Carl Bowen II said David Christian, 33, of Chesapeake, was captured this week. But Bowen may have to stand in line: Christian has accumulated charges in South Carolina and Boone County, Ky., wants him too.

“We have a holder on him. When they get finished with him we’ll bring him back to our county,” Bowen said.
