Don't Want, NC. Don't Want.

Suffolk County Police Fugitive Squad Detectives, assisted by the Seventh Precinct Gang Unit, COPE and Patrol Officers, arrested a Bloods street gang member who was wanted for Attempted Murder in North Carolina, at a house in Mastic.

The suspect, Sean Lamar Melvin, 21, fled North Carolina after the March 4, 2009, attempted murder incident. An investigation by Raleigh, North Carolina Police revealed he had fled to the Mastic area and Suffolk’s Police were notified. The subject was located at a residence on 6 Elm Place, Mastic, and was arrested as he tried to flee from that location.

Melvin was transported to the Seventh Precinct and charged with being a Fugitive from Justice under NY State law and the outstanding North Carolina Attempted Murder warrant. He was held overnight at the Seventh Precinct for arraignment at First District Court in Central Islip.

In addition two other subjects at that location were charged with Obstructing Governmental Administration and various drug charges.
