ROCKY MOUNT, NC (WNCN) — Deputies say they have arrested a Nash County man wanted in California for murder.
The agency’s narcotics division arrested Jalon Dickens in Martin County on Friday, according to a Facebook post from the sheriff’s office.
The arrest comes after a week of investigating and following up leads after a traffic delay a week earlier.
MPs say they initiated the stop for traffic violations at Kings Way Mobile Home Park and that Dickens fled on foot and was able to escape.
Upon further investigation, deputies learned that he is a Nash County resident wanted for murder in Los Angeles, California.
The Wake County Sheriff’s Office and the Martin County Sheriff’s Office assisted in Friday’s arrest.
Dickens is currently in the Nash County Detention Center awaiting extradition to California.
