Fugitive from Texas
A man wanted for a crime in the state of Texas was apprehended on Causeway Drive around 2 a.m. Tuesday, June 24.
Daniel Devane III was driving down Causeway Drive when a Wrightsville Beach Police officer checked his license plate, which showed Devane was wanted for an unspecified crime.
Assault with deadly weapon
A case involving an assault with a deadly weapon is still an ongoing investigation for the Wrightsville Beach Police Department.
An officer was conducting a normal patrol of the North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission public boat ramp when he noticed a 31-year-old white male bleeding profusely.
The other person involved in the case is a 33-year-old white female.
A hammer is alleged to be the deadly weapon.
Cross street foot chase
A Wrightsville Beach Police officer on patrol passed the corner of West Salisbury Street and North Lumina Avenue by car on July 1 and noticed a suspicious-acting man, lost on the corner.
Because they were also looking for a missing juvenile from Bladen County, the officers stopped to speak with the man. After giving the officer false information, 21-year-old Zachary Michael Paulson from Mebane fled across the street but tripped and was apprehended by the officer.
Paulson was wanted on an order for arrest for two counts of felony probation violation in Alamance County.
