Dayton, OH – U.S. Marshal Cathy Jones
announces the arrest by the Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST)
of Robert Scott Carver, age twenty eight. Carver has been wanted by the Aiken
County Sheriff’s Office in South Carolina since November of 2006 for Kidnapping,
Criminal Sexual Conduct with Spouse 1st degree, two counts of Unlawful Conduct
towards a Child, and Malicious Injury to personal property.
On January 6, 2012, shortly after noon, SOFAST received a tip that Carver could
be located at a residence on South Torrence Street in Dayton, OH. After
confirming the information, the SOFAST members quickly arrived on South Torrence
Street and apprehend Carver. By approximately 12:45pm he was in handcuffs and on
his way to the Montgomery County Jail in Dayton.
Carver is believed to have been living in the Dayton area since shortly after
the warrants in South Carolina were issued for his arrest. Carver was arrested
without incident and awaits extradition to South Carolina. At the time of his
arrest, Carver remarked that he was tired of running and had originally moved to
Dayton to hide after throwing a dart at a map. U.S. Marshal Cathy Jones said,
“this arrest is a perfect example of how quickly our task force can react and
apprehend those found hiding in the Dayton area.”
