[ARCHIVED] 12-09-2022 Danville Police Arrest Fugitive Murder Suspect & Safely Recover Missing 5-Year-Old Child

Antar Jeter

At approximately 12:40PM this afternoon, members of the Danville Police Department Investigative Bureau conducted surveillance, located, identified, and arrested 46-year-old Antar Jeter of South Carolina, without incident, after receiving intelligence from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) that he may be in the area.  Antar Jeter was wanted for homicide and grand larceny from incidents in Orangeburg County, South Carolina and was potentially in the company of a missing child.  When located by Danville investigators, Antar Jeter was operating a stolen 2015 Mazda 6, South Carolina tag of SVK-760 and had 5-year-old Aspen Jeter, a missing juvenile from Orangeburg County, South Carolina, in the vehicle.  The missing juvenile was safely recovered at the time of the arrest of Mr. Jeter and is safely in the custody of law enforcement. 

The Danville Police Department charged Antar Jeter with being a fugitive from justice and he will be held pending extradition to South Carolina.  

The Danville Police Department is assisting South Carolina authorities with their ongoing investigations and no further details are available at-this-time.  Any information which may be available on the crimes charged in South Carolina will have to come from those jurisdictions.
