The Charleston Police Department were unsuccessful in finding a wanted suspect Tuesday afternoon after surrounding and searching 2002 10th street for nearly two hours.

Patrol Lieutenant John Bennett said he could not disclose the man’s identity or why he had a warrant for his arrest because of the suspect’s age.

Police were on the scene from approximately 2 to 4 p.m. All roads surrounding the apartment complex were blocked off by police vehicles.

Members of the Charleston Police Department discuss the final plans before entering an apartment complex to execute a search warrant.

To ensure the wanted male could hear them, the police used a loud speaker to say they were not leaving until he exited the apartment.

After roughly an hour, the police went inside and found the apartment empty, which disappointed the crowd recording videos and taking pictures.

Neighbors said they did not feel safe not knowing who the man was.
