ROCK HILL One of the people on Rock Hill Police Departments "most wanted" list is being held on a $250,000 bond at the Moss Justice Detention Center in York.
The Rock Hill Police departments street crimes unit arrested Travis Lamont Hines, 27, of Rock Hill, on Thursday night and charged him with intimidation of witnesses, said police spokesman Mark Bollinger.
Detectives have been looking for Hines since issuing an arrest warrant in early May, Bollinger said.
Detectives say Hines received information about witnesses in an upcoming court trial against one of his friends, Bollinger said. In March, Hines and two other men started threatening and intimidating the witnesses, Bollinger said.
The two other people accused of intimidating the witnesses were arrested last month Shaquille Lamont Mathis, 19, and Kentrell Lavar Hines, 21, both of Rock Hill.
Mathis and Kentrell Hines are being held at the Moss Justice Detention Center, according to the York County Sheriffs Office.
Kentrell Hines bond has not yet been set and Mathis is being held on a $200,000 bond, according to the sheriffs office.
The witnesses, whom police say were being intimidated, are set to testify in a case involving a pistol whipping in Rock Hill, Bollinger said.
Travis Hines is not accused in the pistol whipping crime, but does have a criminal history, he said.
Travis Hines was convicted in 2004 for unlawful carrying of a pistol and convicted in 2008 for possession or manufacturing of drugs, according to York County 16th Circuit Court records.
Travis Hines also plead guilty to other drug charges in 2008, court records show.
According to court records from Greenville County Travis Hines pled guilty to involuntary manslaughter after he was arrested in 2011 on murder charges. Greenville authorities dismissed weapons charges against him related to the 2011 murder charge.
After looking for Travis Hines for nearly a month, Rock Hill police added him to the citys Most Wanted website.
Others on the most wanted list are accused of assault, harassment and criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
