A local man was arrested in Camden County, Georgia on several felony warrants out of St. Francois County and Iron County.
Marvin Bone, 43, of Pilot Knob, was indicted in St. Francois County on felony charges of statutory rape in the first degree against a child less than 14 years old, attempted enticement of a child, endangering the welfare of a child and aggravated stalking.
St Francois county Prosecuting Attorney Jerrod Mahurin said it appeared the incident occurred in April 2016 and the indictment came down in May 2016.
“We haven’t had a chance to serve a warrant on him, so he had been on the run for a while,” said Mahurin. “He has been out of state, maybe on the run for a while. On any felony case we will extradite back.”
Bone is also being charged with a class B felony of child molestation in the first degree in Iron County for an incident that reportedly happened in June 2013. That warrant was issued in May 2016, but was never served.
According to the Camden County Sheriff’s Department, Bone was picked up in Waverly, Georgia after they received a tip that he would be coming through the area.
“On Nov. 17 Camden County Sheriff’s deputies received information of a fugitive from justice that was possibly in Camden County,” Camden County Sheriff Jim Proctor said. “The suspect, Marvin Bone, was wanted in St. Francois County and Iron County on felony warrants.”
Camden County deputies made contact with the Park Hills Police Department and were told that Bone, has been a fugitive from justice for more than two years.
Proctor said Lt. Cedric Brown, Cpl. Lamar Bowen, and Deputy Michael Blaquier with the Camden County Sheriff’s Department received information that Bone would be arriving in Waverly, Georgia at about 3 p.m. Nov. 17.
At 3:10 pm deputies saw the vehicle that Bone was a passenger in and the traffic stop revealed that Bone had outstanding arrest warrants in Missouri.
“Bone is currently housed at the Camden County Jail awaiting transport to Missouri,” Proctor said. “This arrest was accomplished by Camden County, Georgia and St. Francois County, Missouri law enforcement agencies working together so that Bone could be apprehended. I praise all involved who accomplished this fugitive’s capture.”
Bone will be extradited from Camden County, Georgia to St. Francois County on his felony warrants. He has a $250,000 bond in St. Francois County and a $50,000 bond in Iron County.
