More Details Released in Arrest of Charlotte Man on Fugitive Warrant

More details have been released in the arrest of 59-year-old James Howard Finlayson, who is listed as a homeless person from Charlotte. Finlayson was arrested by Conover Police last Thursday (August 4) on a felony fugitive warrant, as reported Friday on WHKY. He was also charged with uttering a forged instrument and forgery of endorsement.

Finlayson was wanted by the Martinsville Police Department in Henry County, Virginia for failure to appear on a felony offense. He reportedly failed to appear in court in June on a felony count of distribution of oxycodone.

Finlayson was jailed in the Catawba County Detention Facility without bond on the fugitive warrant. Bond was set at $5,000, secured, on the forgery charges. He was scheduled to appear in District Court Friday (August 5) in Newton on the forgery charges with another appearance coming up on August 23 on the fugitive warrant.
