Fugitive from Kentucky arrested in Cherokee Co.

Posted: Updated:
. - Cherokee County Sheriff's deputies are holding a fugitive, caught from Kentucky.  Robert Coltin Caldwell, 25, is awaiting extradition to Pike County, Kentucky.  Right now, he's in the Cherokee County Detention Center, but Monday, May 5, multiple crews were searching for the fugitive.   Deputies learned Caldwell could be hiding in Cherokee County.  He had been on the run since reportedly assaulting a Pike County deputy who was attempting to arrest Caldwell. U.S. Marshall's agents and deputies were trying to locate Caldwell when he ran into the woods on County Road 18.  Officers were brought in from the Piedmont Police Department, Calhoun County Sheriff's Office and the State Bureau of Investigation.  After they formed a perimeter and the State Trooper's helicopter took to the air, canines were able to "sniff out" Caldwell.  We're told he surrendered to deputies without incident.
