Kwmane Devlon Brosia, who pointed a gun at a Columbia police officer early this morning, then escaped from custody while at an area hospital, has been captured after a police manhunt.
Brosia was apprehended by police officers at about noon on the city’s public works property on Colonial Drive, police said.
The department’s K-9 unit tracked Brosia to the area, and members of the Columbia SWAT team found him hiding in a compost pile, police said. He was transported to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
He is charged with: armed robbery, burglary, grand larceny, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession with intent to distribute marijuana within proximity of a school, unlawful possession of a weapon, pointing and presenting a firearm, resisting arrest, failure to stop for police and escape.
Brosia pointed a pistol at an officer before he was arrested earlier today on various outstanding weapons, burglary, armed robbery and drug charges, according to the police department.
Brosia was taken to Palmetto Health Richland hospital for injuries he received while resisting arrest, police said. He was cleared by medical personnel, and at about 6:30 a.m. was being taken to a patrol car when he fled as the doors of the hospital opened, police said.
