According to CPD Detectives David Watson and Rodney Elvis, authorities were dispatched to the residence on after detectives noticed Scott Furr driving in a pickup described in an earlier burglary investigation on High Street. After the detectives turned around to pursue Furr, he pulled into the residence that belongs to his mother and had secured himself inside.
Detective Watson stated he had noticed Furr on the back porch upon examination of the property. After having asked Furr to surrender himself to authorities Watson said Furr refused to show his hands so authorities could see he was unarmed and proceeded into the residence.
“Due to the safety of the officers and with the knowledge we had of (Furr’s) background and the possibility he would be armed we called the sheriff’s department to have the special response team assist Cheraw police in apprehending the suspect,” Watson said.
After a two hour standoff, the SRT received a search warrant from Chesterfield County Courthouse and moved in.
“Thankfully we made the arrest with no incident. We would like to thank the sheriff’s department SRT for giving us assistance in this matter.”
Furr is currently charged with burglary in the first degree and grand larceny.
