(ABC News) Maryland police officers responding to a call about a suspicious person ended up arresting one of the FBI’s Top 10 Most Wanted fugitives.
Lamont Stephenson, who had been wanted since being identified as a suspect in a 2014 murder, was found sleeping in a rental truck at about 2 a.m. in Prince George’s County, just outside of Washington, D.C.
Prince George’s County Police Department Police Chief Henry Stawinski said at a Thursday press conference that Stephenson initially told the officers he was homeless and was trying to get out of the weather. But after being asked his name, Stephenson told officers he was wanted in a number of crimes. They also found a gun in his possession.
