Fugitive Caught in Mexico 

Franconia Police District – A man has been extradited from California to Fairfax County for crimes committed twelve years ago.

On November 21, 2000, Wesley Thomason was arrested for allegedly providing illegal drugs to minors and filming himself engaged in sexual acts with more than one minor. Prior to his appearance in court, Thomason fled Fairfax County. Earlier this year, the United States Marshal Service and the Fairfax County Fugitive Task Force developed leads that Thomason was currently living in Mexico. Mexican authorities located and apprehended Thomason and sent him to the State of California on July 20, 2012. On July 31, 2012, Thomason was returned to Fairfax County.

Wesley Thomason, 39, of 5920 Bond Court, was processed into the Fairfax County jail on a bench warrant related to his previous charges of carnal knowledge, manufacturing sexually explicit material involving a minor, possession of cocaine, and indecent liberties.

Detectives would like to hear from anyone who has information regarding other potential victims as well as any information on how Thomason eluded capture.
