UPDATE 6/9/06: Police say Brandon Scott Schultz basically helped find his own way to jail. Early Friday morning, South Charleston police were called to a house on 4th Avenue for a domestic disturbance. When the police got there, they found out Schultz was at a house down the street—and they arrested him.
He's been keeping local officers on their toes! Police say he keeps running from them--and has taken some extensive measures to not get caught. Deputies need your help to find him.
The Kanawha County Sheriff's Department has named Brandon Scott Schultz one of Charleston's Most Wanted. He goes by the nickname "Lil B" on the streets. Schultz is accused of violating home confinement by removing his tracking bracelet and even disabling the monitoring device placed in his home.
He's also charged with escape. Deputies say Schultz ran from them when they tried to serve him with paperwork for not showing up for court. Schultz was supposed to be in court to face charges of brandishing and transferring & receiving stolen property.
"He was given a very lenient sentence of home confinement as opposed to being locked up in jail," said Lt. Sean Crosier with the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department. "Now, it seems as though he's trying to break into the jail because he has a laundry list of violations."
Brandon Scott Schultz is 21 years old. His last known address is on Avesta Drive in St. Albans, but also has ties to South Charleston and other areas of St. Albans. Schultz has two tattoos: the word "black" written on his right forearm, and the word "pimp" on his right hand.
