FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): A two month search for a man has ended.
Around 7:11 p.m. Friday night, Fort Wayne police captured 22 year old Travon Demetrius Russell after a traffic stop in downtown Fort Wayne. He had 3 outstanding warrants stemming from a December 23rd raid at a home at 336 1/2 W. Packard street. Russell was originally found with a large quantity of marijuana and several handguns. He failed to appear in court on those initial charges.
Russell is now charged with maintaining a Common Nuisance, dealing marijuana and possession of marijuana. He was also given an additional charge for possession of a Schedule 1 substance, as he was carying a baggie that tested positive for "ecstasy."
A detective with the Vice and Narcotics Bureau spotted Russell in a van driving eastbound on Third Street. They stopped the vehicle in the 300 block of Superior and was able to take Russell into custody without incident.
Investigation is ongoing.
