A wanted Spotsylvania male thought his fleeing attempt would last forever; however, that was not the case. As of yesterday afternoon, Tyrone Wilson, 24, will be staying at Rappahannock Regional Jail for a prolonged period of time.

On July 22nd at approximately 9:16 p.m. Deputy C.C. Lee was in the area of Drew Middle School when he observed a Southbound vehicle traveling 69 MPH in a 45 MPH zone. Deputy Lee initiated his emergency equipment to conduct a traffic stop; however, the vehicle began accelerating instead. A pursuit was kicked off as the driver swerved into oncoming traffic on Richmond Highway.

The pursuit continued onto Truslow Road, Havenwoods Way, and eventually back to Richmond Highway where deputies lost sight of the vehicle. The unoccupied vehicle was discovered on Malvern Hill Court. While Wilson was able to flee that night, he forgot to collect all his legal documents, business cards, and phone.

Since the pursuit, Stafford County detectives have been working on multiple leads to discover Wilson’s whereabouts. Due to their hard work they were able to discover Wilson hiding in an apartment within Fredericksburg. On August 1st at approximately 3:10 p.m. with the assistance of the Fredericksburg Police Department, Wilson was taken into custody.

Wilson was charged with two counts of felony eluding, two counts of reckless driving, two counts of crossing the double yellow line, driving while suspended, failure to stop at a stop sign, four counts of failure to obey traffic lights. For a bit of icing on this cake, he was also wanted out of Hopewell Virginia for failure to appear, and was served on the outstanding warrant. Wilson was held at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.

Great work to our detectives for being once again the champions of hide and seek. Thank you to not only the Fredericksburg Police Department for their assistance, but to the community for their tips.
