U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents arrested a Goose Creek woman wanted for helping a murder suspect evade arrest.

According to Berkeley County Sheriff's officials, 49-year-old Patricia Myers was arrested after she boarded a cruise ship at the port on Wednesday. She was on her way to the Bahamas but had a warrant out for her arrest. She was turned over to the U.S. Marshals Service.

BCSO officials said Myers had been in contact with murder suspect, 25-year-old, Randall D. Myers. He's wanted in connection to the Sept. 23 shooting death of Ivan Greene.

One of two suspects is already in custody. Maurice Washington was arrested Tuesday. Randall Myers is still at large.

Police say Washington and Myers were in a black Lincoln Navigator, pulled up to a Hassell Avenue home in Liberty Hill and opened fire.

Ivan Greene, 47, was at the home and was struck by the gunfire. He was transported to MUSC and later died.

"Intercepting dangerous criminals in coordination with our law enforcement partners is an important part of what Customs and Border Protection does to ensure people entering and departing the United States do not pose a risk to our communities, or escape justice," said Robert Fencel, CBP Area Port Director in Charleston.

It is believed Myers is in the Goose Creek area. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Myers is encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers at (843)554-1111.
