A fugitive from Texas wanted on a drug charge was arrested Monday by members of the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office and the South Charleston Police Department detective bureaus.
James Earl Davis, 37, was wanted for failure to appear on a charge of possession of a controlled substance in Belle County, Texas, according to a news release from the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office.
Davis was taken into custody while exiting his work place in South Charleston. He attempted to flee when he encountered law enforcement, but he was captured without incident, the release said.
Authorities received information that Davis was working and residing in the South Charleston area, and he was using an alias. When he was arrested, law enforcement officers discovered forged documents pertaining to his false identity, the release said.
Davis was taken before a Kanawha County magistrate and then transported to the South Central Regional Jail pending his extradition to Texas.
