Darius Jamal Gore

By DEUCE NIVEN

    Held at the Columbus County Detention Center in Whiteville since March, a burglary suspect from Tabor City is in the custody of Horry County authorities this week.
    Darius Jamal Gore, 21, of Woodview Drive in Tabor City, was transferred to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center near Conway on Monday, Sgt. Robert Kegler of the Horry County Police Department said.
    Gore follows Shannon Tyrone Parker, 26, who has listed addresses in Whiteville and on Lester Watts Road and Courtney Drive in Tabor City. Parker was extradited on related charges last March.
    Gore was held without bond this week on nine burglary charges, six grand larceny charges, and single charges of petty larceny and attempted common law robbery, jail records show.

Columbus arrests
    Det. Rene Trevino assisted Horry County officers who were looking for Parker on Aug. 31, 2011, and succeeded in locating him in the Sand Pitt area east of Tabor City, Nobles said.
    Parker was charged by Trevino with three counts of possession of stolen property from the Horry County cases.
    Governor’s warrants seeking Parker’s return to South Carolina were served on Sept. 1, 2011. It took until last March for that process to be completed.
    Trevino again accompanied detectives from Horry County looking for Gore on Feb. 7, and located him off of Miller Road, Nobles said.
    A brief car chase turned into a foot chase, with Gore going into a house where he was taken into custody.
    Gore was charged by Columbus County officers with driving with a revoked license, reckless driving to endanger, failure to stop for blue light and siren, and running a stop sign, all charges relating to the Feb. 7 chase.

    Warrants obtained by HCPD detectives Brandon Strickland and Terry Elliott charge both Parker and Gore in these cases:
