Authorities responding to a report of a break-in in rural northern Iredell County on Tuesday arrested a man wanted for attempted homicide in South Carolina.
The suspected intruder at first gave sheriff’s deputies a fake name when they arrived at the scene of the outbuilding break-in on Bunny Lane northeast of Statesville, Sheriff Darren Campbell said. Further investigation revealed he was 40-year-old Joshua Windfield Drummond of Greer, S.C.
Drummond was charged with breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, giving fictitious information to an officer and on a South Carolina fugitive warrant. He was jailed on $760,000 bail.
Drummond has been convicted of robbery, burglary, assault and other offenses, S.C. court records show.
