SUMMERVILLE — A 22-year-old woman was arrested Thursday on charges that she helped her boyfriend, Adam Lee Longa, after he escaped from the Dorchester County jail in St. George in November.
A warrant charging Amy Lynn Blanton of Summerville with harboring an escaped convict says she transported Longa from St. George to Goose Creek. She's also accused of receiving phone calls from Longa and meeting with him and not telling authorities.
She surrendered to the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office on Thursday and was waiting for a bond hearing, 1st Sgt. Michael Miller said.
The warrant says Blanton drove him to Goose Creek and didn't tell authorities until two hours after she dropped him off.
Investigators say she received phone calls and was visited by Longa on several occasions but that she didn't tell them.
On Nov. 5, Longa attended a Bible study on "The Purpose Driven Life" led by volunteers from a local church. When the other inmates returned to their cells, Longa stayed in the break room. He crawled through the ceiling, peeled back the metal siding and jumped off the roof.
