NCL has confirmed with Nelson County, Virginia Sheriff David Brooks, that a manhunt is underway at this hour in the Davis Creek – Perry Lane area of Nelson County north of Lovingston and west of U.S. 29.
According to our conversation with Sheriff Brooks around 1PM EST, they are looking for a fugitive by the name of Lee Spencer. The sheriff was in the process of serving a misdemeanor warrant for domestic abuse when he fled and a pursuit began by authorities.
The sheriff said he is driving a light silver colored F-250 (Ford) pickup with the left tail light possibly broken out.
Virginia State Police units along with NCSD units were involved in the pursuit when Spencer headed first up Perry Lane, then into a wooded area. It is unknown at this time if the fugitive is armed or not, but Sheriff Brooks says he has shown aggressive behavior over the last hour while being pursued.
The sheriff urges residents in the area to lock their doors and call the Nelson Sheriff’s office at (434) 263-7050 if you the truck described or any other suspicious activity in the area.
We have a crew on the scene and will have more shortly.
