SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Spartanburg County Sheriff's deputies arrested a man who escaped from home detention three months ago. 

Lieutenant Tony Ivey of the sheriff's office said that deputies arrested Marcel Foster, 26, of Spartanburg, on Friday at Crescent Hill Apartments. 

According to a report obtained from the sheriff's office, deputies from the sheriff's office warrant division went to the apartment complex on Friday in an effort to find Foster, who escaped from home detention on March 4 after damaging his monitoring device. While searching an apartment, the deputies found Foster hiding in the attic with a black bag. 

The report states that deputies discovered marijuana and a gun in the bag, all of which Foster admitted to belonging to him. Deputies later discovered that the gun was reported stolen from Spartanburg County and found digital scales, used in the manufacturing of drugs, also in the apartment. All of the items were placed into evidence and Foster was transported to the Spartanburg County Detention Center where he was charged with escape, possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics within proximity of a school, possession of a stolen pistol, home detention violation and escape.

Foster is currently being held on $150,000 bond. He had been placed on home detention after he failed to appear in court on another charge.

    Dozens of drivers have filed complaints with the South Carolina Department of Transportation over loose gravel along a stretch of I-85. Officials said the complaints, which topped out at between 6 and 8 per day last week, stem from gravel that's damaged vehicles between Highway 14 and 129, where crews are working on a two-year-long resurfacing project.
