A wanted suspect is in custody on multiple charges after a vehicle pursuit.

On November 9 at 11:21 p.m., Deputy R.L. Hubbard attempted to stop a vehicle for an equipment violation in the area of Forbes Street and Falmouth Drive. The deputy activated the patrol vehicle’s emergency equipment and the suspect vehicle began speeding up. The vehicle was observed driving 85mph in a 35mph zone. The deputy pursued the vehicle to the area of James Madison Drive where the vehicle drove over a curb and through the grass. The suspect stopped the vehicle on James Madison Circle and fled on foot. Deputy Hubbard gave chase and apprehended the suspect.

The suspect initially provided a false name to deputies. He was later correctly identified as Joseph Wilburn, 29, of Dumfries. Wilburn was arrested for eluding, providing false identification to law enforcement, identity theft to evade law enforcement, and driving on a suspended license. Wilburn was also found to be wanted out of Prince William County on three charges. He was held without bond at the Rappahannock Regional Jail.
