HOPEWELL, Va. — Hopewell’s most wanted fugitive, Ferlando Leon Monroe, was arrested without incident by the U.S. Marshal’s Monday, September 21.

Monroe, who also goes by “FERB,” was wanted on a number of charges, including Felonious Assault, Burglary, Grand Larceny, Child Neglect.

Monroe allegedly broke-in through a front window of a home in the 700 block of Davisville Court on July 19 and had a “verbal altercation” with a woman inside.

Monroe is being held at the Riverside Regional Jail.

“The U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force, of which the Hopewell Police Department is a member, has proven to be an invaluable asset,” said Chief John Keohane.
