Felony Fugitive Captured In Putnam County
A felony fugitive, wanted out of the state of Texas, has been apprehended in Putnam County -- after reportedly running his car into a ditch. Police say 37-year-old Frank Allen Williams of Buck Mountain Road, backed his car into a ditch at about 4 am on New Year's Day. When authorities arrived to help, they ran a routine criminal check on Williams and learned that he was wanted in the town of Belton, Texas on a charge of passing a forged check. Officials in Texas have indicated that they are willing to extradite Williams back to their state, although a court hearing on the matter is scheduled for January 15th.
