Police found a juvenile fugitive at a hotel on Buck Jones Road Monday night, seven days after he escaped from custody outside a Wake County courtroom and authorities had issued a warning about him.
Officers turned Calvin R., 15, over to officials from the state Division of Adult Correction and Juvenile Justice while a 20-year-old woman was charged with harboring him.
Kadijah Anguanette Bostic, 20, of 120 Landmark Drive in Angier, and Calvin R. were in a room at a Motel 6 at 1401 Buck Jones Road about 11:40 p.m., police said.
Capt. Randall Rhyne, head of investigations with the Cary Police Department, said officers found Bostic and Calvin during an investigation of a stolen car that Wilson Mills police said they suspected might be at the motel. The connection between Calvin and Bostic is unclear, Rhyne said.
Never miss a local story.
Calvin R. had escaped from state officers after a court appearance at the Wake County Detention Center in downtown Raleigh on Dec. 21.
The state Department of Public Safety issued an alert and his photo that said, “Officials have a high degree of concern for the safety of both the juvenile and the public, due to a prior history of unpredictable behavior.”
Police charged Bostic with felony counts of harboring an escapee and receiving stolen goods and misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, marijuana possession and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.
Bostic also was charged with having controlled substances when she was booked into the Wake County Detention Center, and authorities said they found the prescription anti-anxiety drug Xanax and a small amount of marijuana inside a folded one-dollar bill.
The stolen-property charge involved a gold iPad mini, an arrest warrant said.
Calvin had been in custody at the Wake Regional Juvenile Detention Center in Raleigh before his escape.
Bostic was being held in lieu of $15,000 bail and was scheduled for a Tuesday court appearance.
