Man on Pulaski’s Most Wanted list arrested

GLADE HILL, Va. – A man who had been on Pulaski Police Department’s “Most Wanted” list for some time was arrested in Franklin County recently as part of the U.S. Marshal Service’s Operation FALCON 2009 fugitive sweep.
Ricky Lee Martin, 50, was arrested at a home in the Glade Hill section of Franklin County, where he had been staying, said Deputy U.S. Marshal Cliff Eaton.
“He had been on the run for some time,” Eaton said of Martin. He indicated Martin happened to be staying at a “third party’s” Glade Hill residence at the time of the arrest, but authorities had several other locations they had checked for the man.
Martin was wanted in the Town of Pulaski on charges of malicious wounding and armed burglary, according to Eaton. He said Martin also has two probation violations for malicious wounding and unlawful wounding.
The deputy marshal said some “illegal contraband,” including marijuana and a liquor distillery, were discovered in Franklin County during the search for Martin, but Martin has not been charged in connection with those findings.
According to Eaton, a 150-gallon still was found at the residence where Martin was taken into custody. The marijuana plants were found elsewhere.
Martin, whose last known address in Pulaski was on Oak Lane, is being held at New River Valley Regional Jail.
Operation FALCON (Federal and Local Cops Organized Nationally) was a 30-day nationwide operation that began June 1. In the Western District of Virginia, which includes both Pulaski and Franklin counties, 742 fugitives were captured and 1,175 warrants cleared.
U.S. Marshals, local police, sheriffs, state officers and other federal agencies participated in the FALCON sweep, the first of which was held in 2005. Since its inception, 91,086 fugitives have been apprehended and 117,874 warrants have been cleared.
