Fugitive accused of attempted murder arrested in Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Authorities say a fugitive accused of attempted murder of a police officer and trafficking narcotics earlier this month has been arrested in Lexington.

News outlets report that 38-year-old David Suarez was arrested Thursday during a traffic stop in which authorities say they found heroin, methamphetamine, cash and a loaded gun in his car.

Garrard County Sheriff’s Deputy Keith Addison says he was nearly hit by Suarez’s car two weeks ago when he approached the vehicle after receiving a call about suspected drug activity at a gas station. Addison says he had to dodge Suarez’s car as it sped off.

It is unclear whether Suarez has an attorney.
