Deputies find wanted fugitive on front porch of area home in middle of the night


One wanted felon apparently wasn’t doing a whole lot to make himself seem inconspicuous when local sheriff’s deputies went looking for him at a home on the outskirts of Mebane over the weekend.

Lacy Ross Childress was reportedly just hanging out on the front porch when deputies arrived at the residence along the 3200 block of Calloway Drive in the small hours on Sunday.

According to the office of Alamance County’s sheriff, the deputies were dispatched to this location in response to a tip that had come in about Childress’ whereabouts at about 2:10 a.m. At the time, the 28-year-old white male who hails from 3471 Corbett Road, Mebane, had two outstanding warrants for his arrest and was additionally listed as a wanted parole violator with the National Crime Information Center.
