There is nothing routine for the Fairfax Sheriff’s deputies who patrol the Fairfax County Courthouse Complex. Occasionally Courthouse visitors try to park in the employees’ lot rather than the clearly marked public parking garage. On September 14, a deputy on patrol observed a black sedan with two male occupants pull into the employees’ lot. After circling the complex, the deputy saw the two men outside the vehicle smoking cigarettes. The deputy approached the men and verified that they were not employees. Each man produced identification, but neither had a valid driver’s license.
In the process of running the names through VCIN/NCIC, the deputy discovered that the driver was wanted in Prince George’s County Maryland for attempted first degree murder. The deputy called for backup, issued a summons for driving on a revoked license and transported the man to the Adult Detention Center. He was held without bond as a fugitive from justice and has since been extradited to Maryland. The passenger was released at the scene.
