27-year-old Damon Joseph Scronce of Hope Road in Vale has been served a felony warrant as a fugitive awaiting extradition to another state. He is wanted by the Carter Co. Sheriff’s Office in Elizabethton, Tennessee for a probation violation. Scronce has been in the Catawba Co. Detention Facility since September 3 after he was arrested by Catawba Co. Sheriff’s Officers for failure to appear on a drug paraphernalia charge.
He is on probation following a September 2019 conviction in Tennessee for simple possession of a schedule VI controlled substance. Scronce allegedly missed an appointment, failed to attend a meeting, and failed to make a payment, as required by the terms of his probation.
Scronce remains in jail in Catawba County under a $10,000 secured bond on the fugitive warrant, plus a $1,000 bond on the failure to appear charge. A first appearance in District Court on the fugitive warrant was scheduled today in Newton with another court date coming up on September 21.
