ORANGEBURG, SC -

Four people were arrested in Eutawville Tuesday after out-of-state bounty hunters tried to arrest a wanted man.

According to police, two bounty hunters were provided information of an Orangeburg location of a wanted man with an outstanding warrant in Maryland. The bounty hunters, Corey W. Newkirk and Shannon E Samuel, went to the Richardson Street address to take David Smith, Sr. into custody without notifying or any assistance of local law enforcement officers.

Smith was residing in Eutawville with his 7-year-old son. Smith was handcuffed and both he and the child were removed from the residence by the bounty hunters.

Investigators from the Sheriff's Office arrived and after verification of the outstanding warrant against David Smith, he was arrested and is currently being held for Florida law enforcement officials.

Terri Ann Smith, the mother of the 7-year-old, was also on scene during our investigation. When asked to provide her name, she gave Investigators a false name to avoid arrest. Terri Ann Smith is charged with giving false information.

Newkirk and Samuel are each charged with two counts of kidnapping. Samuel is also charged with possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

The child has been placed in Emergency Protective Custody.
