Press release from the Beckley Police Department:

Beckley Police Department and U.S. Marshals capture fugitive Justin Tyme Hawley 22, of Erwin, North Carolina. Hawley was wanted by Benson, North Carolina authorities for multiple outstanding felony warrants. 

On December 31, 2013 the Benson Police Department in Benson, North Carolina notified the Beckley Police Department Detective Bureau that a Fugitive from Justice, Justin Tyme Hawley may possible be in the Beckley area. Hawley was being sought for multiple crimes including felony breaking and entering, felony larceny and felony conspiracy safe cracking where a large amount of cash and several pieces of jewelry were stolen.

Hawley was reported to be traveling with a friend and co-defendant (previously charged) in the Beckley area. Using the provided license plate information detectives from Beckley Police Department working with the West Virginia's Intelligence Fusion Center were able to determine that the vehicle the suspect was traveling in had been observed headed north on interstate 77 just north of Princeton, West Virginia. Members of the Beckley Police Department Detective Bureau, the Beckley Police Department Patrol Division and Deputies from the U. S. Marshals Service conducted a search for the vehicle at various hotels and restaurants along Harper Road and the vehicle was located at the Harper Road Bob Evans.

Hawley was identified and taken into custody without incident as a Fugitive from Justice on the outstanding warrants in North Carolina. Hawley is facing a misdemeanor charge in West Virginia for possession of a small amount of marijuana that he had on his person at the time of arrest. Officers recovered over 2,300.00 dollars of the missing cash from the burglary in North Carolina on Hawley's person. Hawley is a known gang member and an associate of the United Blood Nation "BLOODS" Street Gang. 

Hawley was arraigned by Raleigh County Magistrate Greg Tanner and is awaiting an extradition hearing to be extradited back to North Carolina to face the pending charges.
