GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office said a wanted suspect considered to be armed and dangerous and has been arrested eight times since 2020 for serious offenses has been extradited back to the state from New Jersey.

Almalik Geter Jr., 19, had active warrants for domestic violence, second-degree, removing or destroying electronic monitoring devices, and escape, according to deputies.

On May 18, deputies said Geter’s last known location was apartment 157F at 151 Fernwood Drive in Spartanburg.

Geter was described to have numerous visible tattoos on both arms and a female’s name tattooed on the right side of his face.

The Sheriff’s Office mentioned that Geter has been arrested eight times since 2020 for offenses such as possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, threatening public officials, resisting arrest, and this latest incident is his third time cutting off an electronic monitoring device.

We’re told on June 2, Geter was arrested in Newark, New Jersey at 7:30 a.m. and is currently being held at the Essex County Detention Facility on their fugitive from justice charge.

Deputies said it is unknown at this time if Geter has waived extradition back to South Carolina, but if he attempts to fight extradition, the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office will seek a governor’s warrant to go get him.

Geter arrived back in South Carolina on Thursday, June 9, at 9:12 p.m. and will have a bond hearing at 2 p.m. on Friday.
