EARLY MORNING RAID NABS FUGITIVE

Murphy, NC— Sheriff Derrick Palmer announced the April 14th, 218 arrest of Benjamin Lee Stanley, a 39 year old Topton North Carolina man for domestic violence violations and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Over the past several months the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office has several interactions with Stanley including evading arrest on charges of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. Additionally, there were two active warrants for the arrest of Stanley for violation of Domestic Violence Protective Orders. On several occasions Stanley had evaded arrest including a Friday morning encounter where Stanley led investigators on a chase eventually losing them as Stanley, who was operating a jeep, took an off road trail.

During the early morning hours of April 14th, 2018 deputies with the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division travelled Stanley’s residence and utilized a search warrant to gain entry. Upon entering the residence it was discovered that Stanley was again attempting escape by dropping down into the crawlspace of the residence and was hiding until discovered by the deputies. Stanley was taken into custody and transported to the Cherokee County Detention Center.

Benjamin Lee Stanley was served with an indictment for being a felon in possession of a firearm and was placed on at $15,000.00 secure bond. Additionally, two domestic violence protective order violation warrants were served on Stanley in which he was placed on a 48 hour no bond condition. Stanley was also charged with Resist Obstruct and Delay and was placed on a $3,000.00 secure bond. Stanley is currently being held in the Cherokee County Detention Center.

Sheriff Derrick Palmer stated “Great work getting Mr. Stanley off the streets. It is obvious he has no regard for the court or the law. This was some outstanding work by the patrol officers who took this issue to heart, planning out a great mission and ensuring no one was hurt. Job Well Done!”
