U.S. marshals arrest wanted man in FargoFARGO – U.S. marshals arrested a man here Friday who has been wanted since November for terrorizing and simple assault.
Richard John Dumont-Newago, 27, was arrested when members of the U.S. Marshals Service High Plains Fugitive Task Force saw him leaving a south Fargo apartment complex. The officers followed him a short distance before stopping him in the 4500 block of 44th Avenue South.
Inside Dumont-Newago’s car, officers found a knife with an 8-inch blade hidden under the driver‘s seat. They also found drug paraphernalia and ammunition for a .25-caliber semi-automatic pistol inside the glove box. A gun was not found.
Fargo Municipal Court also issued a warrant for Dumont-Newago’s arrest on Nov. 21 charging him with criminal trespass, a misdemeanor. A second warrant was issued Dec. 5 for reckless driving charges.
When Dumont-Newago was taken to the Cass County Detention Center today, officers found marijuana in his pocket.
He now faces more charges of possession of a concealed weapon and possession of marijuana.
