GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - One of three men remains on the run after the trio led agents on a chase Monday, August 11, authorities say.

Xavier Rashon Reed is being sought after by officials and was last seen in Georgetown. He should be considered armed and dangerous.

Reed, along with two captured suspects, fled after agents said they saw the trio engaged in a drug deal.

Walker Dwane Bone and Shaquille Walker have been arrested and taken into custody.

Agents say they observed three males, in a 1998 Lincoln SUV engaged in drug transactions and numerous traffic infractions. The agents tried to stop the vehicle, when Bone fled and led police on a chase.

After traveling a short distance, Bone jumped from the vehicle and fled on foot.

Reed was in the passenger seat. After Bone jumped, Reed then took control of the vehicle. He crashed the SUV into a house at the intersection of Yadkin Avenue and Congaree Lane before trying to run over agents who were on foot.

Reed, and another passenger, then fled the scene with the vehicle.

Citizens helped locate the SUV, where Walker was arrested.

He has been charged with one count of possession of drug paraphernalia and is being housed at the Georgetown County Detention Center.

Agents found drug paraphernalia and marijuana remnants in the vehicle as well as hand gun bullets.

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of either Reed is asked to contact the 15th Circuit Drug Enforcement Unit at 843-461-1661 or the Georgetown County Sheriff's office. Due to the presence of the ammunition in the vehicle and the actions of Bone and Reed, agents consider them possibly armed and dangerous. Citizens should avoid any contact with them.
