U.S. marshals are looking for a nearly 400-pound fugitive who they say is headed for disaster.
Forty-one-year-old Rodney "Pocket" Evans is wanted in six area jurisdictions on multiple auto theft warrants and for violating his probation for an assault on an Arlington County police officer.
"This guy is carrying on like he's living in a real-life 'Grand Theft Auto' video game. He is truly a regional menace and doesn't seem to care who he hurts," said Matt Burke of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force. "We'd like the Examiner readers to help make it 'Game Over' for Pocket and get him off the streets."
Evans is wanted in Montgomery County on a charge of theft over $10,000, and on auto theft charges in Prince George's, Arlington, Anne Arundel and Howard counties, and Alexandria. Most of his alleged victims are auto dealers. He also has a history of arrests over vehicle theft, destruction of property, false identification, forgery, larceny, assault on police resulting in injury, fleeing and eluding, and possession of PCP. Evans is hard to miss. He is listed as 6 feet tall and 375 pounds. He has a scar on his forehead and a tattoo on his left arm. Marshals deputies said he has previously lived on Congress Street in Southeast Washington and on Palmer Road in Fort Washington. Anyone with information regarding Evans should call the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force at 301-489-1717 or the U.S. Marshals Service at 800-336-0201.
