Chesapeake fugitive captured after 3 years on run

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — A fugitive wanted in Chesapeake on gun and drug charges has been captured after three years on the run.

U.S. Marshal Robert W. Mathieson says deputy marshals and agents with a task force took Erica Arnold into custody without incident Thursday morning in Norfolk.

Mathieson says in a news release that Arnold was arrested after she was seen leaving a residence and getting into a vehicle as a passenger. Officers stopped the vehicle once it was in a safe location.

The task force’s members include the Chesapeake Sheriff’s Department, Newport News Police Department, Portsmouth Police Department and Norfolk Police Department.
