Stafford VA. An Ohio fugitive was arrested on Thursday night by deputies with the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office following a reckless driving incident.

On November 21, 2019, at approximately 9:29 p.m., Deputy Fields observed a vehicle driving erratically on Interstate 95 northbound in the area of Exits 140 and 143. After the vehicle exited the interstate, it turned into the parking lot of the Wawa located at 72 Austin Park Drive.

Upon approaching the vehicle, Deputy Fields detected a strong odor of marijuana. He made contact with the driver who was identified as Maleke Davis, 25, of Dumfries, VA. The driver’s pupils were dilated, and his eyes were bloodshot and glassy. The deputy then learned that the suspect was wanted on extraditable warrants out of Ohio for grand theft and identity-theft related charges. In addition, a search of the vehicle yielded a substance consistent with marijuana.

The suspect was taken into custody and incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond. He was charged as a fugitive of justice and received additional charges for possession of marijuana and reckless driving.
