The Clay County Sheriff’s Department (CCSD) nabbed one of its most wanted offenders Oct. 22.
Long after being indicted in April 2012, West Point resident Quinshon Rice, 24, was recently arrested by the West Point Police Department following a routine response to a call regarding a possible disturbance of the peace. With two felony capias warrants from the CCSD along with a bench warrant from the Municipal Court to his name for alleged possession of cocaine and sale of marijuana, Rice was only able to elude law enforcement for so long.
According to WP Police Chief Tim Brinkley, stumbling upon Rice was somewhat a stroke of luck.
“Officers were called to the scene ... about a vehicle parked in the neighborhood playing loud and offensive music,” said Brinkley. “Upon questioning the occupants of the vehicle, (Rice) gave officers false information in an effort to conceal his identity.”
