CHARLESTON, W.Va. - A Logan County man who fled a State Police detachment where he was being held on drug and parole charges will now face additional charges.
David Jeffrey, 37, of Smokehouse was able to make it out of the Logan detachment Monday afternoon while troopers were completing paperwork, Sgt. C.E. Stump said.
Jeffrey was arrested Monday on charges of possession with intent to deliver, failure to register as a sex offender and violation of parole from Virginia, Stump said. He was restrained, Stump said, but still managed to escape.
Troopers searched for him for nearly 24 hours. They called in extra manpower and canine search teams before finding him just a few miles away in Justice Addition.
"We found him," Stump said. "He resisted but we arrested him."
Stump said Jeffrey now faces charges of escape and battery of a police officer.
Jeffrey remained in police custody and was to be arraigned Tuesday evening in Logan Magistrate Court.
