From Randolph County Sheriff Kevin Bell:
“You may have seen Deputies and Pocahontas PD in the Pocahontas Walmart parking lot tonight on a traffic stop with this man, Brandon Burchfield.

He was an armed parole fugitive who deputies took into custody without incident. He was also in possession of a small amount of meth. He was taken into custody after a citizen tip.

We have had several calls from concerned citizens about the incident. No one was injured and you can rest easy tonight because he’s off the street.

Great job RCSO and PPD. Teamwork at its finest. “

Sheriff Kevin Bell
