Maryland fugitive apprehended in Hague
The Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Office has apprehended another out-of-state fugitive after information was given to the office that a man wanted in Maryland was hiding out in the county.
Devan M. Ginyard, 24, was arrested without incident on July 27 at 5:10 a.m. on Jerusalem Church Road in the Hague area of the county. Sheriff C.O. Balderson said he was arrested at the home of a relative. Balderson said he could not speculate as to whether or not the relative knew Ginyard was wanted in Maryland.
Ginyard is wanted in Baltimore County on charges stemming from a September 2011 incident. He is facing five charges including armed robbery, assault in the first degree, assault in the second degree, use of a handgun in commission of a felony and theft of less than $1,000.
Ginyard was taken to Northern Neck Regional Jail where he is being held without bond. He will appear in Westmoreland County’s Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court on Aug. 1 for an extradition hearing.
“I thank the community for continuing to provide information that keeps our county safe,” Balderson said. “We want to get these people out of our community.”
Balderson said that this was not a Tri-County Task Force operation, but his office was assisted by the King George County Sheriff’s Office and the Virginia State Police Canine Unit.
