HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - The Horry County Police Department has honored two of its own with awards for the month of April.

The department said the two officers removed a convicted felon from the streets of Horry County after responding to Four Oaks Motel in April.

According to the HCPD, the subject gave one of the officers a false name at first.

Through further investigation, the officer was able to obtain the male subject's correct information, according to the department.

The subject was wanted out of Waterbury, CT for parole violations and the subject was an escapee. The subject was arrested without further incident, according to the HCPD.

This is a great example of a thorough investigation into a call for service that led to an apprehension of a felon on the run, the department said.
