A Warrenton fugitive, charged with sex crimes against a child and hunted by the U.S. Marshals, was arrested yesterday in Greene County.
The Green County Sheriff's Office learned Justin Richard Britton, 43, of Warrenton, was staying at Trail Motel in Ruckersville, Va., said Greene County Sheriff Stephen Smith. Greene County deputies found Britton at the motel and arrested him Wednesday afternoon.
Britton did not appear at a court hearing and was considered a fugitive. Britton is charged with multiple counts of object sexual penetration of a child and indecent liberties with a child.
