Upstate man wanted since Dec. arrested in Asheville

SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A Spartanburg man wanted after deputies said he stormed into a friend's apartment and fired shots back in December was arrested in Asheville and is now back in the Upstate.

Back in December, Spartanburg County deputies said a dispute about Facebook messages sent to the suspect's girl led him to break into the victim's home and fire shots at him.

Deputies issued arrest warrants for the suspect, identified as Raymond Holmes, on the charges of attempted murder and burglary first-degree, but he had yet to be located or arrested.

Then in February, deputies and the SWAT team swarmed a home after they received a call about a man harassing his girlfriend, making threats toward her and said the man had tried to hurt her in the past. They said that man was Holmes, 34.

Deputies were able to safely get the woman out of the house and when the SWAT team performed a dynamic entry into the home, they discovered the house empty, Sheriff Chuck Wright said at the scene.

At some point Holmes ended up in Asheville where local police said they arrested him on March 10 on a fugitive warrant. According to his arrest report, Holmes gave a Davidson Drive address in Asheville.

Deputies said once they learned Holmes was in the Buncombe County jail, he was brought back to Spartanburg County. He was booked into the detention center Wednesday on the attempted murder and burglary charges.
