FLORENCE, S.C. (WMBF) - A man wanted in connection to a homicide investigation in the Pee Dee is now in custody, according to police.

The Florence Police Department said Le’Andre Kajuan Richardson was arrested Saturday after officers spotted him in a vehicle near Alexander and Sumter Street.

He then tried to escape from officers, abandoning his vehicle on Schofield Drive.

Police were later able to find and arrest Richardson a short time later with assistance from the Florence County Sheriff’s Office and a K-9 unit.

Richardson is charged with murder and armed robbery in connection to the death of Joshua Brosiga, who was found dead in his home in January.
