The Aiken man wanted in connection to a double murder at Buldra Lane last week was captured by police Monday in Connecticut.
Jeremie David Tobey, 20, was wanted by the Aiken County Sheriff's Office for the murders of Cody Diminovich, 25, and Pamela Lawson, 38, according to a release.
He also was wanted for the charge of grand larceny.
Tobey was apprehended around 5:30 p.m. Monday by the Connecticut State Police and taken into custody, according to a release.
The 2011 blue Honda Civic that was stolen from the Buldra Lane residence also was located by Connecticut authorities, the release states.
Tobey will be held in Connecticut while awaiting the extradition process.
“The collaborative efforts between law enforcement from multiple jurisdictions and citizens made this arrest possible," said Aiken County Sheriff Michael Hunt in the release. "Though Tobey has been taken into custody, we still have a lot of work to accomplish in this case. It is our greatest hope that his arrest brings some measure of comfort to the victim’s family.”
Aiken County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to Buldra Lane around 7:27 p.m. Friday after being notified of a shooting by a 911 caller. They had to force their way into the house, where they found Diminovich and Lawson dead inside from gunshot wounds, police reported.
This investigation is still an ongoing and information will be released as it becomes available.
