Virginia Murder Suspect Arrested In Lady Lake Traffic Stop!
A man who was wanted for m*rder in Virginia was caught Wednesday morning during a traffic stop in Lady Lake. According to an incident report, two Lady Lake police officers were watching traffic on U.S. Highway 27 near Griffin View Dr. just before 4:30 a.m. when they tried to stop a white Hyundai Sonata with a Virginia license plate for speeding through the area.
The driver stopped at a gas station nearby and gave the cops his license, which said his name was Maurice T. Massey and that he was 29 years old. After a routine check of the ID number, Lake County dispatchers told the police that Massey had a second-degree m*rder warrant from Virginia. Massey was nabbed after the Arlington County Police Department in Virginia confirmed the warrant.
As Massey was being arrested, the cops heard him say that he knew what the warrant was for but that “it’s all wrong.” Police say that Massey then said he saw a m*rder but didn’t do it himself. Massey got a written warning for speeding and was taken to the Lake County jail because he had a warrant from Virginia.
“I’d like to commend our officers for their diligence and remind the community that even routine traffic stops can make a difference in the safety of our community,” Lady Lake Police Chief Steve Hunt said in a statement announcing the arrest.
Virginia police haven’t said anything else about the m*rder case Massey is tied to, but they did tell Lady Lake police that they didn’t need the Hyundai Sonata he was driving for their investigation.
