BEECH ISLAND, SC (WFXG) -

The Aiken County Sheriff's Office called in bloodhounds Wednesday morning after a man wanted on drug charges ran when deputies tried to arrest him.

Deputies responded to the 300 block of Church Road in Beech Island around 10 a.m. after receiving a tip that Leslie Alan Murphy, 37, who was wanted on five outstanding warrants for violation of drug distribution law, was in that area. 

When deputies arrived, they identified Murphy, who then fled into the woods. The bloodhound tracking team was called in, and they captured Murphy 20 minutes after they began the search.

Murphy was booked at the Aiken County Detention Center.
