Sheriff’s deputy helps capture ‘Most Wanted’ suspect

It was a surprise welcome home party of sorts for one of Lawrence County’s Most Wanted probation violators Friday evening.

The Adult Probation Agency had been following leads to track down Dewey McGLone Jr., 36, who is on probation for a breaking and entering conviction and stopped reporting to the probation department. McGlone was featured on the Most Wanted list on Oct. 28.

Carl Bowen II, chief of the APA, said some tips from callers led he and his team to a residence on State Route 93 on Friday.

“We followed up on a couple of addresses and as we were making entry in one address on 93 and I looked out front, a guy pulled in (the driveway) and pulled out real quick while we were inside,” Bowen said.

In addition to the probation officers, Bowen said Deputy Todd Easterling of the sheriff’s department was aiding in the search.

“Todd, he gets in his cruiser and pulls them over on State Route 93,” Bowen said. “He (McGlone) was a passenger in the back seat of a pickup truck. He was coming home. The stars aligned on that one.”

Bowen said once the man was in custody, he admitted to trying to stay away from town after seeing his face in the Most Wanted lineup.

“I said, ‘You know I had been looking for you.’ He said, ‘I know.’ He said, ‘Once it hit the paper, I really had to stay away from town.’”

Bowen said without the help, the sheriff’s department, McGlone might have gotten away.

“Most likely if it had just been us, we’d probably never have gotten him,” Bowen said. “It’s nice having someone out there like that. I’m very glad he (Easterling) was available to go with us and that the sheriff allowed him to do that.”

Also captured last week was Chadwick Workman.

Workman, 22, is on probation for a grand theft conviction and stopped reporting to the adult probation department. He was featured on the Most Wanted list on Oct. 21.

Bowen said tips led his department to believe Workman was in Logan, W.Va.

The tips didn’t give the APA an exact address, but neighborhood descriptions were enough to lead West Virginia state authorities to the right residence on Wednesday.

“We didn’t have an exact address, but they were real familiar with the area and they were able to apprehend him for us,” Bowen said.
