MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A fugitive who crashed a car during a police chase and then stole a truck from Broadway at the Beach has been apprehended in North Carolina, according to Myrtle Beach Police.

Jamal Marquis Daniels, 22, of Myrtle Beach, was arrested in a hotel room in Wilmington at about 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, officials stated. The New Hanover Sheriff’s Office utilized their SWAT team to arrest Daniels. Myrtle Beach Police will release more information on his arrest and charges soon. According to court records, Daniels had failed to appear on four charges from an April 2013 arrest: assault and battery, robbery, burglary, and kidnapping.

Police also identified the other suspect arrested in connection with the car chase and crash near Broadway at the Beach Wednesday as 21-year-old Roderick Smith. He is currently charged with possession of cocaine and resisting arrest, according to jail records.  Police say he will have additional charges.

Daniels was a fugitive trying to flee from officers when he was involved in a crash near 29th Ave. North and Highway 17 Bypass, then fled into Broadway at the Beach, stole a truck, and fled the scene, according to officials. The truck was later located empty elsewhere in the city.
