On May 12, Deputy Fahey responded to Franklin Road in Lexington Park, for a warrant service. 

Deputy Fahey was in possession of two arrest warrants for Joshua Joseph Yates, 20 of Lexington Park.  Yates was warranted for possession of marijuana and motor vehicle theft.  Prior to arriving at the Franklin Road address, Deputy Fahey received information from one of the owner’s of the residence that Yates was inside of the residence. 

Upon arrival to the residence she was met by Mark Joseph Thompson, 46 of Lexington Park. Thompson was the other owner of the Franklin Road residence.  Deputy Fahey explained to Thompson that she was in possession of arrest warrants for Yates and that she understood Yates was inside of the residence.  Thompson denied Yates being inside of the residence and refused Deputy Fahey entry.  Deputy Fahey explained to Thompson that he could be charged with harboring a fugitive and hindering an investigation if he knowingly permitted a wanted subject to hide from the police inside of the residence.  Thompson repeatedly refused Deputy Fahey entrance into the residence denying Yates’ presence there.  While on the scene the other owner of the residence arrived and allowed Deputy Fahey into the residence. 

Joshua Yates was located inside of the residence and arrested on the open warrants. 

Mark Thompson was arrested for harboring a fugitive and obstructing and hindering an investigation.
