Drug Fugitive Caught Near Flying J

WICHITA FALLS - Wichita County Sheriff's deputies found drug fugitive Ronnie Dabney Friday just after noon behind the Flying J Truck Stop.

Police said Dabney had failed to show up to court Thursday but was still convicted on methamphetamine-making charges. A jury in 30th District Court had convicted him in connection with a May 2010 drug raid on Rathgeber Rd. A warrant was immediately issued for his arrest.

Wichita County District Attorney's officers and deputies arrested Dabney around 12:20 p.m. in an open area behind the truck stop near Jacksboro Highway and Central Expressway.

Dabney's sentencing hearing will be rescheduled for a later date.
