Effingham County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man late Thursday night wanted by the Bluffton (S.C.) Police Department for armed robbery.

Desmond Hill, 27, of Rincon, also faces charges in Effingham County for possession of powder cocaine and possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute.

The Bluffton Police Department requested the assistance of the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office in locating Hill.

Deputies converged on a residence in Westwood Heights late Thursday night where Hill was taken into custody.

Hill was currently out on bond in Effingham County where he led deputies on a high speed pursuit through Rincon earlier this month where he also faced drug charges.

He is being held at the Effingham County Jail without bond.
