Winchester police arrested a man Saturday sought by Front Royal authorities for his alleged connection to a Nov. 27 shooting in town.
City officers operating a DUI checkpoint in the 900 block of South Pleasant Valley Road stopped George Lee Good at approximately 1:50 a.m. Saturday, according to information in a media release issued Monday by the Winchester Police Department.
Good approached the checkpoint while driving a 2015 Mitsubishi passenger car and provided false information about his identity to the officers, the release states. Officers investigated and positively identified Good, according to the release.
Officers took Good into custody without incident for charges surrounding a Nov. 27 shooting incident in Warren County, the release states. The department provided no details about the shooting incident on Monday.
Front Royal police have been investigating the shooting incident because it happened in town. The town police department arrest log released Monday shows the agency served warrants against Good at 2:42 a.m. Saturday on charges of shooting or stabbing with intent to maim or kill, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Front Royal police Capt. Crystal Cline said in an email Monday the agency intends to obtain charges against two additional suspects in the case but would not release more information about the incident until today.
City police officers searched Good and his vehicle and found two firearms and ammunition, according to the release. Police also found an unidentified crystal-like substance which they plan to send to the state forensic laboratory for examination, the release states. Officers took Good to Northwest Regional Adult Detention Center where he was held without bond.
Winchester police charged Good with providing false information to law enforcement, driving on a suspended operator’s license and possessing a firearm by a convicted felon, according to the release. Good faces additional charges related to the discovery of the unidentified substance.
