Accused Thief Arrested in Georgia

On January 28th, a 33-year-old Rhode Island man who reportedly used the trail name "Saved" was arrested in rural Georgia on state fugitive warrants from Virginia as a suspect in a series of residential break-ins and car thefts off the Appalachian National Scenic Trail in Wintergreen, Virginia. Procedures are being instituted to extradite David Lescoe from Middle, Georgia, to Wintergreen. Ranger Todd Remaley coordinated the federal side of the investigation in conjunction with Forest Service and local law enforcement officers. The task force had been looking for Lescoe on and near the trail since last September after two break-ins were reported and a stolen automobile was recovered at the Appalachian Trail parking area along the James River.
