DARLINGTON, SC (WMBF) – A St. Stephen man was arrested in Darlington County Monday night for possessing a stolen weapon and a number of other outstanding warrants.

According to a press release from the Darlington County Sheriff’s Office, Darrian Travaris Timmons, 24, was wanted for two counts of second-degree domestic violence, malicious injury to personal property, possession of a stolen firearm, failure to stop for a blue light and driving under suspension.

On Oct. 4, a patrol deputy attempted to stop a vehicle drive by Timmons on Turnpike Road for speeding, the release stated. The suspect briefly fled from law enforcement before stopping on Windy Plains Drive and exiting the vehicle with an SKS 7.62-caliber rifle.
