CHARLESTON, SC - Charleston County sheriff's deputies are looking for 53 year old Malcolm Barnwell.

Barnwell is wanted for failing to pay child support and check fraud.

"In over the years, we've had many dealings with him and he has had in excess of 100 warrants with the sheriff's office over the years," said Charleston County Sheriff's Deputy Reggie Sharpe.

Sharpe said by now he figured Barnwell would have learned his lesson, but that didn't happen.

"It's my job to deal with it. I've dealt with it before, several different times. But we're both getting older now."

Sharpe speculated at one time Barnwell made a lot money and tried to continue living a high lifestyle even after the money ran out.

"Apparently his child support obligations aren't being met and he's floating bad checks so it would appear he's in a bad way financially," Sharpe said.

Sharpe said that doesn't excuse Barnwell from facing charges.

"It's time for him to put away his checkbook and step forward or I'm coming

Barnwell stands 6'0" and weighs about 220 lbs.

His last known address was Stonewell Drive in Summerville.
