When the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office has its eyes on you, a pursuit won’t last long. A wanted Fredericksburg man discovered this Friday afternoon in South Stafford.

On June 2nd at approximately 6:08 p.m., deputies with the Special Problems Unit were in the England Run subdivision attempting to locate David Martin Jr, 33. Martin was wanted out of Stafford for two counts of possession of controlled substances. It didn’t take long for deputies to spot Martin and attempt to make contact with him. Martin attempted a great escape using his vehicle, and in the process, he struck a deputies unmarked vehicle.

Martin continued onto Lyons Boulevard where Deputy W.A. Bolinsky observed him exit his vehicle and run into a wooded area. Sergeant B.U. Demirci along with his K-9 partner, Titan, began a track which led to Elkton Drive. Deputies were able to locate Martin sitting on the steps of an apartment building. With the persuading bark of Titian, Martin surrendered without further incident.

Martin was discovered with suspected controlled substances on his person. A search inventory of his vehicle revealed additional suspected controlled substances. Martin also provided a false identity to deputies; however, that clearly did not fool anyone.

On top of his two outstanding charges, Martin was charged with two counts of possession of a schedule 1 or 2 controlled substances, possession of a schedule 3 controlled substance, eluding police, hit and run, destruction of property, obstruction of justice, identity theft, and to top it off, falsely identifying himself to law enforcement. His time at Rappahannock Regional Jail is looking to be a long one, for he was held without bond.

Great work to all deputies involved for locating yet another wanted individual, and for taking even more dangerous drugs off the streets.
