Phillip Scott Furr was taken into custody, Tuesday after a two hour stand off with local law enforcement officials. Furr, who had barricaded himself at 130 Cash Rd, was being sought after as a suspect in a burglary incident earlier that day at 221 High St, according to Cheraw Police Department detectives.
According to a CPD report, Furr allegedly broke into the Burnette residence at 221 High St somewhere in the time frame of 6:30 a.m. to 10:24 a.m. Items taken from the residence totaled over $5000 in value and included cash, jewelry and weapons.
When authorities approached Furr to serve a warrant for his suspected involvement in the burglary, he sped up and turned into the residence on Cash Rd. Because of the nature of items reported missing from the High St. residence police officials deemed Furr as armed and dangerous. After refusing to comply with CPD detectives, the special response team from the Chesterfield County Sheriff's Department was called in to assist in the apprehension of Furr.
Investigations in the burglary and failure to comply with law enforcement officials are still under way.
