MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A man wanted as a fugitive from justice in Maryland and in Jefferson County, W.Va., for failing to appear in court on a felony drug charge was captured Wednesday by authorities at a residence off Flowing Springs Road, police said.

Bradley Allen Wilt, 31, surrendered to police after initially fleeing on foot in the vicinity of a Gray Rock Road residence where he was found, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputy Sgt. Victor Lupis said Thursday.

Wilt was wanted in Jefferson County for failing to appear in court on a felony count of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, Lupis said.

In 2005, Wilt was sentenced to 11 years in prison in Washington County (Md.) Circuit Court after pleading guilty to three burglaries there that occurred around Christmas 2004, according to court documents. Wilt later was ordered to serve another year and one day in prison for a related witness intimidation conviction stemming from the burglary cases, according to court records.

Lupis said Wilt’s last known address was 867 Wide Horizon Boulevard in Kearneysville, W.Va.

Wilt had a Leesburg, Va., address at the time he was sentenced in Washington County Circuit Court, according to court documents.

Members of the U.S. Marshals Service’s Mountain State Fugitive Task Force, West Virginia State Police and the sheriff’s office took part in Wilt’s capture Wednesday, Lupis said.

Lupis said authorities looked for Wilt for several months.
