This report has been updated with clarifying details.

Warrenton Police Department officers assisted the U.S. Marshals Service this morning in executing several “fugitive from justice” warrants on a 24-year-old Warrenton woman, said WPD spokeswoman Officer Chai Fuller. 

A fugitive from justice is someone who has been charged with a crime in one state, but then is found in another state. The warrant executed Monday will allow the suspect to be extradited to Maryland, where the warrant had been signed by the governor. 

Warrenton officers responded to the area of Gold Cup Drive and Broadview Avenue for reports of vehicles driving recklessly in the neighborhood. Fuller said that police did not find anyone driving recklessly, but they found U.S. marshals apprehending a fugitive from justice, and lent assistance. 

Diamond Robinson, 24, was arrested on the warrants and is being held at the Fauquier County Adult Detention Center with no bond, Fuller said.
