Pinebluff Police Nab Suspect in Charlotte Case
A routine traffic check Sunday by Pinebluff police led to a big arrest.
Cpl. Donald Morton and Officer Annette Gooselin arrested Corey Stephen Ross, 39, at 6:45 p.m. after discovering he had an outstanding federal warrant for manslaughter, according to Sgt. Christopher Sanderson.
The officers were working a seatbelt check at the intersection of Currant Street and East New England Avenue.
"He (Ross) said his license had been revoked and when they ran his name through the computer it came back with FBI warrants," Sanderson said.
According to Moore County jail records, Ross is from Southern Pines. He is being held on a charge of driving on a revoked license and a probation violation.
A phone message left for a federal investigator in Charlotte was not immediately returned.
Sanderson said Ross, who was wearing his seat belt, didn't give the officers any problems when they arrested him.
"Maybe he didn't know about the warrants, or maybe he just knew it was about time for it to end," Sanderson said.
