For Immediate Release

January 13, 2016 Brian Stalnaker, Deputy U.S. Marshals
Eastern District of Virginia (804) 545-8522;
USMS Office of Public Affairs (202) 307-9065
Fugitive Still on the Loose After a Year on the Run

Richmond, VA – U.S. Marshals are again releasing the following information in the fugitive hunt for Andrew “Andy” Williams, wanted in the City of Colonial Heights (VA) for numerous offenses including possession of a controlled substance and firearm related charges.

U.S. Marshals and Colonial Heights Detectives have been actively seeking Williams since January when he failed to appear for trial on charges stemming from a June 2014 arrest. Williams has eluded capture and seemed to fall off law enforcements radar ever since. Williams has a long criminal history including arrest for drugs, firearms and assault and battery.

Williams has ties to Virginia but could be in North Carolina, South Carolina, or Florida. He has brown eyes and brown hair but may be partially gray on the sides. Williams also occasionally wears glasses. He could be working any under-the-table paying job such as construction or landscaping.

“He could be anywhere at this point in time. We are still actively seeking him and will continue to search until he is apprehended. We are asking the public to help us in anyway possible,” said U.S. Marshal Robert Mathieson.

Anyone that may have had contact with or seen Williams is asked to contact the U.S. Marshals at 1-877-WANTED-2 (1-877-926-8332). Tipsters may remain anonymous.

The USMS Regional Fugitive Task Force in Richmond consists of investigators for the U.S. Marshals Service, Virginia State Police, Virginia Department of Corrections, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the Richmond, Chesterfield and Hopewell Police Departments, as well as the Chesterfield Sheriff’s Office.
